Is there a fundraising requirement?
All cheerleaders are required to participate in fundraising activities! This season we expect to have several opportunities for tag days (mandatory) as well as other fundraisers.
What are the opportunities for camp?
There are 3 camps that are MANDATORY for Green & Gold Team.
There are 2 camps offered for White Team, 1 is MANDATORY* and 1 is strongly encouraged to attend.
The 1st is a day camp experience at North Hunterdon High School. It's typically held last week of July or first week of August from 9:00am - 12:00pm
The 2nd camp experience is limited to girls on the Green & Gold Team and is a MANDATORY requirement for participation. This camp is an overnight that tentatively runs from August 17th – 20th at the Nationally Renowned Pine Forest Cheer Camp in the Pocono Mountains.
The 3rd is a stunt clinic* the Green & Gold and White Teams attend, which is run by the nationally ranked North Hunterdon Varsity Cheerleaders. It usually takes place in September or early October. During this clinic teams clean up stunts for the approaching competition season.
What are the opportunities for Cheerleading Competitions?
The primary goal for the Jr. Lions Cheerleaders is to support the football program. We cheer at games in all kinds of weather. We do also attend Cheerleading Competitions. The Jr. Lions White, Green & Gold Teams are competition teams and will typically compete four times per season in October and November. The Lil' Lions may exhibition once during the season. All competitions are sponsored by local high schools and are governed by UCA competition rules.
There may be a MANDATORY practice Friday night before a competition. If your child is unable to make this practice they will not be able to cheer in the competition the following day.
Choreography will be scheduled end of August or beginning of September. Choreography practice is MANDATORY for all cheerleaders on the White and Green & Gold Teams. If your child is unable to make any of these practices they will not be able to compete for the entire season.**********
