Parking at Practice

Please park outside the fence on the side with houses. If you park on the school side, you could get a ticket and be towed. Only badged volunteers may park inside for safety.

Parents need to bring their children to their coach, please don’t let them run off alone.

Please remain on the field or buddy up your child with another responsible adult in case of sports injury or lightning.

Sometimes lightning will interrupt our practice and you’ll need to wait out the storm in your car with your child.

Florida rain doesn’t last long, so we will text the group when practice can resume.

Before each practice make sure your child:

Feminine products




Cheerleaders must:

Leave cell phones behind - this is a distraction

Keep nails short – Cheer is a contact sport and you could hurt other girls

Nail polish is not allowed at games

No makeup - could rub off on other cheerleaders. Cheer is a contact sport.

No jewelry – could get snagged and cause injury to players



Practice wear is included in your registration price, or any athletic clothes that you can move in, stretchy shorts, t-shirt are all good

Hair up off face: ponytail, bun, braids, no beads allowed in hair

Cheer shoes with any socks (save your uniform socks for game days only). You may wear any sneakers if on backorder. Double knot laces, please!


How We Practice:

To build a stronger, closer community of girls and coaches we will begin practice with all ages together for our run, warm-up and cheers, then break into squads for more age appropriate goals

Practice Schedule:


Warmup stretching/yoga


Stunts/Jumps after we’ve completed our 20 hours.

Cool down/team spirit finish


Please come inside the fence and pick up your child from practice on time

Practice ends at 7:30 for MM and JV and 7 for TM,

(Please note, until August 12 practice ends at 8pm to get in our 20 hours)

Children are not allowed to run toward the street and be picked up valet style. Park and come get them for their safety.

Talking to your coach

Please address issues after practice or by phone. During practice, your coach will be focusing on the kids.

Please talk with your coach first before involving the cheer coordinator or other board members.

If you are upset

We’re all human and make mistakes sometimes, or our methods are different from your expectations, or we’re just clashing with different personalities. We’re trying our best and are all volunteers.

Please take a day to cool off and come to us with a possible solution rather than just a complaint. It takes a village to run this organization and that village includes you. We are all on the same side. Help us, help you. Our league will be stronger if we work together.

Changes: We apologize for any sudden changes in the schedule or locations. Please understand, this is not being made by us, there is a whole team at the Mid Florida level who is working hard to make all the pieces of the puzzle fit together. Sometimes we have to make a change and this can be inconvenient. we're very sorry, but there's nothing we can do about it except inform you as soon as we are made aware. It isn't Coach Tori or your team's coach, it's coming from the top. We are just the messengers. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.

Game Day

Bring your bag filled as for practice

Giant Water Bottle is a must

October is breast cancer awareness month:

Wear the pink bow.

Optional: any pink socks and laces

Cheer hack for bows:

  1. Keep your bow in a sandwich Tupperware so it doesn’t get crushed

  2. Use a plain elastic to make your ponytail, then add your bow as a second elastic

  3. Cut the elastic and simply tie in a knot around your already formed ponytail

Cleaning uniform

Wash inside out, with cold water, on delicate cycle. Line dry or it will shrink! NEVER USE FABRIC SOFTENERS

Game times will be posted in the text app and on FB.

Girls need to arrive 1 hour before game time for book check.


We take turns on snack week. You’ll be assigned by your coach, if you have a conflict, swap dates with another parent and let your coach know.

Snacks should include: Gatorade, Water, fruit, and a snack pack, like goldfish.


Concession at Home Games

Parents take turns running this. You’ll be assigned a date and time by your coach. If you have a conflict that day, call and switch with another parent and let your coach know about the change. You will serve the hour before your child's game. For example, if your child's game is at 10am, you will serve from 9-10 so you won't miss your child play.

Concession is our biggest fundraiser and because your shift will be the hour before your child’s game, you won’t miss a thing.


It Costs 40K to run this league. Nobody gets paid, we’re all volunteers.

That money pays for equipment, field rental, referees, and insurance. Your registration pays for part of this and the rest is from donations and sponsors and concession sales.
