Due to the nature of the sport, a practice missed by one cheerleader has a significant impact on the squad, particularly on that cheerleader’s stunt team. Please schedule your family vacations during June and July, as August is a critical month where skill sets are being evaluated and team positions determined.  Please contact us should you have a prearranged vacation in August.

Coaching Opportunities
Parent volunteers interested in coaching are encouraged and should register as a volunteer during the player registration process. Coaches have varied experience with the sport and include former cheerleaders and interested parent volunteers. No experience is required—however knowledge of the sport is preferred. All are welcome and will be paired with experienced coaches accordingly. When registering as a volunteer you will need to upload a copy of your Rutgers SAFETY certification card. All coaches will also need to complete the required training through Ycada and pass a background check. 

Volunteers under 18 years of age:
A junior coach must be rostered, and must comply with the same registration procedures as a rostered athlete. In addition a junior coach will be required to complete the training through Ycada.  A junior coach can earn credit for volunteering. A form may be required for the coordinator/coach to approve their volunteer time. The junior coach would then need to turn in this paper to their sports director.

Equipment and Uniforms
The organization will provide competition cheerleading uniforms. 

Competition teams are expected to purchase a team jacket, cheer sneakers and white no show socks.

Cheer sneakers will be sized for all teams by Village Shoes during a practice in August. More information to follow.
