2019 Cheering Registration Letter
Posted Apr 29, 2019

WELCOME TO PALMER CHEERLEADING 2019!

We are so thrilled you chose cheerleading as your fall sport! Cheerleading is a fun, exciting, positive, and motivating sport. It is also a lot of hard work, but that hard work can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience. Through cheerleading you can learn, teamwork, responsibility, sportsmanship, discipline and self-confidence, all while creating friendships and memories that will last a lifetime! For us to create a great team we need to achieve a balance of working hard and having fun. In order to achieve that balance, below are a few rules and guidelines. We will be emailing a code of conduct noting mandatory rules and regulations for the 2019 season in June once registration has completed. This form will need to be signed by both the guardian and cheerleader and returned to your coach at the 1st practice.

 Parents, our goal is to coach cheerleading to the best of our abilities, and to have a great time doing it! Your cooperation is greatly appreciated! Most communication is done through our emails and team apps for your cell phone. Please check emails regularly. It’s the most effective way to reach many parents at once.

The season runs from August through mid-November, a scheduled will be sent out to you once registration is over.
