August 4, 5. 6 - 6 to 8:30 pm Gymnastics Gym
Bring 1. Cheer Application
2. VHSL Physical with a date no earlier than April 30 2014.
3. 3 Teacher Recommendations.
All forms can be downloaded form the Handout section.
Instructions for having the teacher recommendations turned in via email. Download the evaluation form from the web to your computer. Email your teacher and ask for the evaluation attaching the form. Your teacher is then able to fill it out and email it to me. Simple? I am surprised how many Kellam teacher are sending just scores.
I have recieved many evaluations so far:
If you need to know what I have recieved please ask. I am trying to email back to your teachers a thank you just so they know it was recieved.
Do not come to tryouts without teacher recommendations being recieved via email. I reserve the right ot contact the teacher to verify recommendations, so please do not think about having "Uncle Bob" sign it as a teacher.
I will post dances in July.
Practices begin August 7 - 8 to 10 am.
Reserve Monday and Tuesday August 11 and 12 for an in house camp for sideline teams. ( no additional cost except maybe lunch) For Varsity this will be an 8 am to 3 pm event.
I am working on the "Ropes Course" for this year but I was told they may not be open in the summer due to budget concerns. I will keep you posted.
Just For Fun: If I ask you to perform your favorite cheer from this video could you do it? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oV4xX74MRow Boom!!!!

Subject: Re: Juliana, cheerleading clinic
Thank you so much for hosting the two cheerleading clinics at Kellam HS and the advice you gave my daughter Juliana. She made the PAMS cheer team as an alternate. Only 2 rising 6th graders were selected. She was given advice from your Kellam HS cheerleaders to show up early, listen to the coach and team, and perform well with lots of facial expression. She was also told to look prepared and wear a cheer bow! She did not have cheerleading experience except from your two workshops and six hours at Epic cheer 2 weeks ago during their free clinic. We are very appreciative of your positive words of wisdom. Thank you so much for positively influencing my child to do her best and giving her the "tools" necessary to achieve her goal. Please pass this on to your cheerleaders. They are blessings to my Julie.
Wonderful! Update: we own 5 cheer bows from Cheer Factory thanks to the advice of your cheerleaders and she is determined to be a great flyer.
