Cheer squads are formed based on a combination of age and school district. Participants may be grouped in a wider range to accommodate practices closer to home. There will be a coaches meeting mid-November for them to receive rosters and choose practice times. Coaches will contact participants directly after this meeting. Squads can begin practices the week after Thanksgiving. Teams will practice until Winter break and then resume practice and games when school resumes in January. The squad will cheer for a basketball team, chosen by the head coach of the cheer squad. We do not have a cheer team for every basketball team, so requests to cheer for a sibling’s team will not be granted. The season is approximately 8 weeks long with an additional 2 weeks reserved at the end for makeup games. Refunds are given until the deadline (November 1). No refunds on late registration. If you are interested in coaching or have other questions, please contact E-mail Nikki Custer, Athletics Manager or call 540-483-9293.
*Late registrations will be accepted November 2-30 for an additional $15 late fee. Late registrations are placed as needed. Registration Deadline: November 1, 2022
