Cheering FAQ

What do I need to know about cheering uniforms?

Cheerleaders will need to purchase a game uniform.  For the 2021 season, the game uniform will be maroon shorts and a shirt*.  The game uniform will have a screen-printed or embroidered logo (TBD).  Cheerleaders will also receive 2 bows.  One will be maroon and gold.  The other will be pink and will be worn during October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

A warm up suit will be loaned to each cheerleader for use during the season.  Warm Ups will be handed out the first week of practice and collected at the end of the season; usually at the end of season banquet. 

*In future seasons we plan to return to a traditional cheering uniform.  Due to COVID, supply chains and shipping delays have led us to decide on shorts and a shirt for the 2021 season.

How much is a cheering uniform?

There is no cost for use of a warm up suit.  The game shorts and shirt for 2021 will cost $45.  Cheering bows will be $10.  The total cost per cheerleader of $55 will be due the first week of practices.
