GATOR CHEER NEWS

The purpose and vision of BH Gators Cheer Program is to allow youth to learn the fundamentals of cheerleading and to teach responsibility, good sportsmanship, safety, and teamwork.

Cheerleaders will be placed in the divisions according to their age & experience classifications. Cheerleaders will be placed on the same division as their sibling(s) per your request. If you have other children in the program (football or cheer) please notify one of the coordinators as soon as possible for proper placement. Special requests to be placed on the same division with friends will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. All efforts to meet requests will be made.

Get ready for a fun yet challenging cheer program that focuses on cheerleading fundamentals and techniques as well as physical training that embraces the ideal that cheerleading is a sport for athletes! Your cheerleader will learn arm motions, jumps, cheers, and chants! Enjoy fun activities such as jump roping, relay races, tumbling, and so much more! They will learn how to encourage crowd participation at football games and gain the courage and self-esteem to be themselves in front of people. We will attend a cheerleading competition with other cheerleaders from our conference and learn how to compete using a choreographed cheer routine and stunts while exhibiting our good sportsmanship skills. Your child will experience friendships that may last a lifetime through team events, partnership activities, and overall participation.

Start Date: July 2017 Practice will begin Location TBD. Practices will continue Monday through Friday. After games start, usually the first Saturday after Labor Day, practices will be Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday. More information to come on competition practice. This schedule will continue for all cheerleaders through playoffs. Rookies will have a modified practice schedule. We will discuss that schedule the first week of practice.

Games: Cheerleaders are required to attend all football games. Games are held on Saturdays. Times and locations will vary according to divisions. Some traveling is required to attend the games. You will receive a game schedule after practices have started and as soon as they are available. Our game season does not end until after playoffs are finished. If your team does not make playoffs, your entire squad will be reassigned to a team that is in playoffs until all teams have achieved victory or been eliminated. We highly stress the importance of being at all playoff games to give our football players support.

Cheer Clinic: August 2017 location TBD. All cheer participants are expected to attend. The main purpose of this clinic is to teach cheer and stunt safety. In addition, cheerleaders will learn new cheers, get hands on coaching, and meet cheerleaders from other squads in the conference. A fun and exciting day for all!

Competition: Competition fees have been added into your registration fees.  Your cheerleader will have the opportunity to compete in our Conference Cheerleading Competition! All participating cheerleaders will receive training with a certified trainer and choreographer in preparation of competing. More information on competition will be made available to you, as it is determined.

This will be updated as we confirm more dates. 

Fund raising is a crucial part of cheerleading. It helps to cover the cost of our banquet, choreographer, tumbling coach fees, etc. These costs have not been included in your registration fees and therefore need to be covered through fund raising. All cheer participants are required to participate in all fund raising efforts. Sponsorships are available. Friends, family, neighbors, and businesses may participate as a sponsor for your child and/or the league. Please see one of the cheer coordinators or any Board Member to receive a Sponsorship package and more information.

Coaches / Volunteers Needed: BH Gators Cheer Program consists solely of volunteers. There is a current and immediate need for coaches, assistant coaches, team moms, and various other cheer committee positions. You will be given all of the training and support necessary to fulfill any position. Regardless of experience, this is something you can do! Join us in being a part of a program that promotes health, fitness, sportsmanship, friendship, and a really good time! Any additional questions please email: ebonyburks@gmail.com

Thank You – looking forward to another great season!
