Congratulations to the 2012-2013 UA Middle School Cheerleaders
Attention 4th, 5th, and 6th graders:
Try-outs for the Ursuline Academy Middle School Cheerleading team will be held in the gym on April 17, 18, and 19.
The girls who make the team will be required to stay after school on April 20th for the uniform fitting.
Save these dates on your calendar if you plan on trying out.
More information will be given out at the beginning of April.
If you have questions, please e-mail Katie Gremillion at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Cheer Tryout Information
Ursuline Academy Middle School
Cheerleading Try-out information 2012-2013
If you are interesting in trying out the Ursuline Middle School’s 2012-2013 cheerleading team, please read the following information CAREFULLY. You and a parent must sign the permission slip for you to try out. Turn in the permission slip to Mrs. Gremillion by Friday, April 13th.
This year try-outs will be held in the gym. We will have clinic on Tuesday, April 17 and Wednesday, April 18 (from 3:15-4:30 each day). At clinic the girls will learn a dance and a cheer for try-outs.
TRY-OUTS ARE THURSDAY, APRIL 19th, in the gym. We will begin try-outs promptly at 3:15. I will let you know what time to pick up your daughter during the week of try-outs for this day. (The number of girls trying out will determine how long try-outs will take.)
The girls will be judged by independent judges. The girls will be required to do two jumps, the cheer they learn at clinic, the dance they learn at clinic, and a tumbling pass if they have one.
The girls should wear appropriate clothing for cheerleading: tennis shoes, shorts, and a t-shirt. Girls who cheered last year are NOT allowed to wear anything that indicates they have been a cheerleader. You should wear PLAIN SHORTS AND T-SHIRTS FOR TRY-OUTS. A P.E. T-shirt is okay to wear, but nothing that says “cheerleader or cheerleading.”
NO PARENTS ARE ALLOWED INSIDE THE GYM OR GYM LOBBY DURING CLINIC OR TRY-OUTS. Your daughter will need to get dressed everyday on her own. This includes try-out day. All of the girls will wait in the gym lobby until it is their turn to go in front of the judges. I will be in the lobby with them. You should send a snack and a drink for her every day.
PLEASE BE ON TIME EVERY DAY TO PICK UP YOUR DAUGHTER. IF YOU ARE NOT OUTSIDE THE GYM AT 4:30, I WILL TAKE HER TO AFTER-CARE.
Cheerleading is expensive. This year we will be keeping the same uniform with the two tops, one sleeveless and one long sleeve. You are more than welcome to buy a used uniform from a former cheerleader. We will be buying new ribbons, poms, shoes, and bags.
This is the approximate cost for this year:
$500.00 VARSITY: CLOTHING, SHOES, POMS, BAGS, RIBBONS, UNIFORMS, ETC. (This amount will vary for almost every single girl. It depends on what your daughter will need to replace, or if she is new. If she is new, you should be prepared to pay around $500.00 for Varsity). You will each receive an individual bill.
*Please be prepared to make the following payments for camp and Varsity:
APRIL 20th: YOUR FIRST PAYMENT OF $150.00 IS DUE AT OUR VARSITY FITTING. (see attached “important dates”)
TBA: YOUR NEXT PAYMENT OF $150.00 IS DUE AT OUR FIRST DAY OF CAMP.
AUGUST 13th: YOUR FINAL PAYMENT OF THE REMAINING BALANCE IS DUE. THIS IS THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL. YOUR DAUGHTER MAY BRING THE CHECK TO ME.
APRIL 17,18,19: Try-outs
APRIL 20, 3:30: Fitting with Varsity rep.
JULY 23, 24, 25, 9:00-3:00: CAMP at Louisiana Tumble and Cheer. CAMP IS MANDATORY. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR MISSING. IF YOU HAVE A VACATION SCHEDULED, YOU SHOULD NOT TRY-OUT. You will receive more details about camp if you make the team.
*We will also practice every Thursday after school from 3:15-4:30. These practices will be mandatory.
*Please keep in mind that other dates may be added to this list once school begins. Cheerleaders are required to cheer at all home volleyball games, basketball games, and other school events. We will also participate in Mardi Gras parades February 1-3 and 8-10, 2013, and the Ursuline Spaghetti Supper. I will have more information about these things once next year’s school year begins.
PLEASE RETURN THIS PAGE TO MRS. GREMILLION BY FRIDAY, APRIL 13th.
Make sure you have read the important dates, and you are SURE can make it to all of them. If you make the team, you need to be at the fitting on Friday afternoon, April 20th, after school.
I have read the attached guidelines for the Ursuline Middle School Cheerleading Team and agree to follow all of the requirements.
