Sunrise Gators cheerleading is open to girls ages 5 to 15. All athletes must be 5 before September 1st of the current year. Cheerleading is a very intense sport which requires a lot of dedication from the parents as well as the athlete. It is also important that parents support both their athlete and coaches. Attendance at practice is strictly enforced and any unexcused absenses will not be tollerated.
Spring practice will start on May 2, 2016 and run until the mid June. These practices will be held on Monday’s and Thursdays from 6 pm – 8 pm. During this time all girls will learn the basic fundamentals of cheerleading including motions, hand positions, jumps and basic cheers.
At the end of Spring practice, each athlete will be required to tryout. Tryouts will be held in June. Tryouts are based on the age and ability as required by the AYFLC. The AYFLC only allows a certain number of athletes to be rostered on each squad.
Our practices start on July 5, 2016. Each team will practice 3 days a week in preporation to cheer and perform for each team’s football game. We cheer an 11 game schedule starting in August and runs until our football season is over.
On September 1st we will start preparing for the AYFLC compeition. This is a big deal for our athletes, therefore each teams practices will increase to 5-6 practices a week. This competition is what we are working towards and looking forward to all season long. We like to think of it as the “Super Bowl” for cheerleaders.
All athletes must be registered with the city before stepping foot on to the practice fields. There are additional costs assicated with the program.
