American Pride Cheerleading offers a Spring Cheer Season which is approximately 8 weeks and primarily focuses on cheer conditioning. Registration will be open February 1through April 1 with practices beginning April 2nd. Cheerleaders must be 5 years of age by December 31 of the preceding year. The fee is $125 per registrant (save $25 if register early).
*Refund Policy: If a written refund request is made prior to squad assignments, a 50% refund will be issued. If a written refund request is made after squad assignments, no refund will be issued. Refund requests should be sent to email@example.com.
Squad determination is based on the number of cheerleaders registered in the program. Though we cannot guarantee, we will do our best to accommodate requests (based on skill level/experience/coaches discretion) to keep siblings on the same squad. Assignments are generally determined by age but skill level and experience are also heavily weighted factors.
Practices will begin the first week of April
Squads will practice 2-3 times per week
Cheer practice locations are independent of football practice locations
