NOTE: This information is subject to change and is provided here to help fully inform
any interested cheerleaders about when and how preseason is arranged and organized.
Preseason move-in will need to occur on either Sunday, August 18th or Monday August 19th. The location where keys may be picked up will not be known until after August 1st.
A preseason meeting will be held in the afternoon on August 19th and all cheerleaders attending preseason are required to attend this meeting. Details regarding the upcoming year, game schedule and practice schedules will be reviewed at this meeting.
Practices will tentatively begin the evening of August 19th. They will continue for the rest of the week with twice a day two hour practice sessions through the first day of classes. A complete schedule will be available with exact times and dates after August 1st.
During preseason, the participants will participate in practice activities, which include conditioning, stunting, tumbling, cheers, chants, dance and jumps. There will also be some organized gatherings to spend time with each other and get to know each other better.
Because the dining hall meal plans do not take effect until August 25th, the school does offer the option of purchasing a short term meal plan for the duration of the preseason. These plans are arranged for in advance and are to be paid for by the cheerleader, not the squad. If you are interested in taking part in the preseason meal plan, please let me know prior to arriving for preseason.
