Cheer Program Information

2023 SEASON  

Welcome to T-Birds Cheer2023!  The information below will provide details on our program and outline the registration process and fees.

The T-Bird organization is always striving to offer the best football and cheer experience to the kids in our communities. The sport of cheerleading has evolved quite a bit over the last few years and so have we! 


All Divisions are based on the age of the cheerleader as of July 1st  of the current season. Below are the T BIRDS age ranges per CHEER division:

  • Jr. Pee Wee Division: 5-7years old
  • Pee Wee Division: 8-10  years old
  • Jr. Varsity Division: 11-12 years old
  • Varsity Division: 13-14  years old (Note: 8th Graders regardless of age will be placed on Varsity)

No Experience Required for Game-Day Cheer Teams

All Participants will be placed strictly on age, no exceptions. 


  • T BIRD DAY is July 8th, 9:00-12:00pm 
  • There will be a mandatory clinic on April 19th & 20th from 4:00-8:00pm  (all squads)
  • Practices will be every Wednesday starting 8/2  at Monte Vista High School Commons, from 6 pm to 8 pm
  • Cheerleaders will participate at every football game (sideline cheer and halftime routine) 


It is important for all participants and their parents to understand our attendance rules and to inform you they will be strictly enforced for the 2023 cheer season.

The following will be required:

  • Cheer participants are expected to be at every practice and be on time during the entire season.  

  •  Once the season begins, if a cheerleader misses one unexcused practice during the week, she will be required to attend the game in full uniform, and will be “sidelined” for a portion of the game.  

  • Approval of unforeseen absences must be communicated 24 hours before the practice and approved by the head coach.

  • If there is a Game Day absence, it is the cheerleader’s responsibility to "catch up" with another member of the squad to learn what was missed so she is “up to speed” with the rest of the squad by the time she returns. 

  • Depending on the circumstances of the absence(s), the head coach has the responsibility to evaluate the situation and bring it to the attention of the VP of cheer.  After three absences, the Head coach may recommend to the VP of cheer and Executive Board that the participant be “released” from the program.  The decision of the Executive Board is final. There is no refund if dismissed from the program.

  • Punctuality is as important as attendance.  Chronic tardiness or leaving early is unacceptable and will result in appropriate action decided upon by head coach and can result in a possible release from the program.  There is no refund if dismissed from the program.

  • Absences: if a cheerleader misses one unexcused absence or tardy, to a practice or a game, they will be sidelined for a quarter or a half of the game. 


Cheer registration fee is  $475 plus fees (uniforms ordered at a separate cost) 


  • Open of registration to March 31: Full refund if canceled 
  • April 1 to April 21: $400 refund
  • April 22 to May 31: $100 refund (no refunds on uniforms ordered separately) 
  • June 1 or after: No refunds
  • PLEASE NOTE: Credit card fees and service fees are non-refundable.

We will continue to communicate the nature of these requirements during registration, through the Cheerleader contract you are required to review and acknowledge by signing the Cheer Code of Conduct.  Every cheerleader is expected to be at every practice and game.  The impact of absences is significant to squad progress and most of all, safety.  The fairness and integrity of this policy impacts the girls’ attitudes and their learning progress, safety and readiness to perform and compete.  It is mandatory to comply with the above absence requirements (no exceptions), as it will make a significant difference to the progress and performance of each squad throughout the season.  If you have any questions regarding the above policy, please contact:
