All squads will be departing from and return to the Hannaford's parking lot in Kingston. DO NOT BE LATE. THE BUS WILL NOT WAIT FOR YOU. We must adhere to the OCYCA schedule. If you are bringing a bag, make sure it's one you can carry around with you and have a water bottle (or two) with your name, warm-up jacket and/or yoga pants, cell phone (if you must) and a dry snack.
An e-mail will be sent tonight (11/20) with more detailed information about the competition including what you can and can't bring with you, uniform reminders, if parents/family would like to ride the bus, etc. It's important that it be read in its entirety; it should answer any/all questions you might have, but as always, let me know know if not!
We are looking forward to our annual OCYCA competition. The cheerleaders, with their coaches, have worked extremely hard this season. Let's support them, cheer them on, wear SL colors, and be respectful of all of the young athletes competing.

2014 Cheer Information
2014 - Information for Parents
Do you have questions about the SLYFC cheerleading program? General Information about try-outs, stunt clinics, practices, approximate costs, etc. are in the attached document (link above). This is "FYI" only as information does change and is updated throughout the season.
The SLYFC cheerleading program is open to children in grades 2 through 8 (squads are based on the grade you are entering in the Fall, not your age). We love seeing our returning cheerleaders and are excited to have new cheerleaders join us, whether you're entering grade 2 or grade 8! Previous experience is not necessary to participate in our program - we'll help you to learn what you need to know! If you would like to be considered for a varsity squad, a try-out is required (April 14-17, KES). We will have 'stunt clinics' in the Spring as well as a 3 day camp in the summer (we do consider this mandatory and there is an additional fee for it).
The Cheer season is August - November and includes practices, cheering at games, performing a routine at half-time, and participating in competitions.
The "levels" are Mites (grades 2-4), PeeWees (grades 5-6) and Midgets (grades 7-8). Depending upon our registration numbers, we will have both a varsity and JV squad per level. Each squad is coached by a head coach (adult), 2-3 junior assistant coaches (youth who have 'graduated' from our own program!), and often an assistant coach (adult).
If you have any questions, please contact Joanne Jones, Head Cheer Coordinator, or Jennifer Ingersoll, Assistant Cheer Coordinator, through the "Contact Info" page on the left.
Tips on how to be a "Great Cheerleader!" here
Being a Cheerleader and what you can Learn
As coaches and coordinators, there is so much we teach the kids and so much more they take from this program outside of the actual mechanics of cheer.
- RESPECT yourselves and others
- PERSEVERE and stick with things - progress is slow but it comes
- be POSITIVE young ladies, value yourselves
- SHARE your abilities
- HELP your peers
- TEACH the things you know
- BE a positive leader in your COMMUNITY
(Thank you Coach Maryann!)
