CHEER FAQ

Who can participate in NCJJF Cheer?

Boys and girls who are in grades 1 thru 8.

What will it cost to participate in NCJJF Cheer?

There is a registration fee of $425. This fee covers purchase of a uniform. There is also an expectation that all cheer families will participate in our yearly fundraising events. The money raised at these events covers additional uniform costs, our practice facilities, fun activities for our cheerleaders, game-day awards, team building, end of year recognition events, and end of season awards. You have the option to buy out of fundraising participation by donating $150 at registration.

When does the season start and how long is it?

Following dates detail the milestones in our season:

  • June TBD – Mandatory uniform fitting. This is the one and only fitting for all cheerleaders.

  • August 6th - 8th – Optional cheer camp. Open to all cheerleaders. Provides a foundation of cheers, chants, and stunts.

  • Aug 12th - 29th – Summer cheer practice. Mon thru Thurs, 6-8. Time and place TBD.

  • End of Aug – Football and Cheer Jamboree. Times for squads will come out closer to the event. Expect that each squad will be there at least two hours. This is the first time the girls will wear their uniforms and practice cheers.

  • Sept TBD – First football game! All Saturdays need to be reserved for games. Times can change up to game time.

  • Aug – Nov TBD – Regular season practice. Tues/Thurs, 6-8. Location TBD.

How many practices can my child miss during the season?

Each cheerleader is given TWO free passes for the season.  She may miss practice twice during the entire season for whatever reason necessary.  This includes school, family, and social obligations.  Plan wisely!  Anything beyond these 2 passes, the cheerleader will receive a game day consequence.

 

For each missed practice, the cheerleader will sit out of the next game for 1 quarter (example: 2 quarters sitting if 2 practices are missed).

What squad will my child be on?

We will know better once registration is closed. This answer depends on how many registrants we end up with. We try to keep similar age and grade groups together.

 

i.e., If we end up with 30 registrants, we might form 3 teams of 10, broken down by grade:

  • 10 cheerleaders (grades 1-3)

  • 10 cheerleaders (grades 4-5)

  • 10 cheerleaders (grades 6-8)
