The Cheer squads will learn cheers, chants, a dance, tumbling and stunting. The Dance and Step squads will begin working on half-time routines. Coaches will emphasize proper warm up, conditioning drills, tumbling, stunting, game cheers and competitive performances.
Practices are generally 2-4 days per week until school starts. Once school starts, the practices are cut back to 2-3 days per week based on the YFL guidelines. Frequency and length of practice is determined by each head coach.
📣Freshman Cheer: TBD
📣Jr Cheer: TBD
Proper Conditioning: Physically prepare and maintain your body’s strength, flexibility, and stamina for stunting and tumbling. Strengthen your core muscles (abdominal and lower back muscles) along with the upper and lower body and include aerobic (running, jogging, cycling, swimming) and anaerobic (wind sprints, circuit training) activities.
Exercise Reminders: Warm up, stretch and cool down for every practice or competition and be sure to rest.
Proper Equipment: Practice on mats or padded flooring until your routines are perfected. Make sure the mats are adequately sized and sufficient for the activities you are performing.
Spotting: Have trained spotters always present and engaged.
Knowledgeable Coaches: Make sure your coaches are certified in safety, first aid, CPR and AED use.
No Horseplay: Focus at all times during stunting and tumbling activities.
Communication: Request that your coaches review safety precautions, rules, and regulations with the squad on a regular basis, and that they establish and implement an emergency action plan.
Know Your Limits: Be aware of your ability level and do not attempt advanced level gymnastic stunting skills before mastering less advanced skills. Always have a supervisor present.
Treatment of Injuries: Promptly attend to any injuries you sustain. Your school or organization’s athletic trainer can assist in the proper treatment and prevention of such injuries. He or she can also offer an injury prevention education seminar and assist in creating the conditioning routine.
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a fall or a blow to the body that causes the head and brain to move quickly back and forth.
Health care professionals may describe a concussion as a “mild” brain injury because concussions are usually not life-threatening. Even so, their effects can be serious.
