Girls Middle School Cheerleading
Homecoming is this Friday. The girls need to be in uniform at the stadium entrance to meet me at 5:30. We will warm up, go on the field with the HS girls prior to the 7:00 pm kick off to do the break through banner for the team and then remain to do the National Anthem.
We will meet back up on the 2:00 minute warning for the second quarter as we will go on the field with HS for the Homecoming Court. Afterwards, we cheer on our own for the third quarter. After that they are free to go. Please make sure someone is there for your cheerleader as after the third quarter we will be done for the night officially.
Please make sure that your cheerleader has all the pieces of her uniform and poms in a cheer bag wen she comes in.
Impact Dates are August 28 with makeup on the 29th. Forms must be completed to give trainer prior to test. Those are our first two practice dates. All 8th graders and incoming 7th graders are required to take this test. We will meet in gym lobby after school immediately and walk over to HS together to do. As we finish, we will hold practice until 4:30 on both days. Must have form printed off of ojrwildcats.org. If no one needs the 29th, we will practice at MS with normal meeting after school at bathrooms by cafeteria.
Pick up will be in front of the Middle School both days.
UPDATE: new game and practice schedules are up. We had an exhaustive schedule that was too much for MS. I think parents and cheerleaders alike will be relieved. We have the original 6 games as noted. We will be cheering as one whole unit since the girls have bonded at camp and their performance was amazing!

Do to unforeseen circumstances, we have to move camp. It is a very sad situation for one of our instructors and we will need to move it to August 19, 20 and 21. Same time and location. We appreciate your patience and support.
Please see updated info on how to pay for bow or camp on this site under Camps and clinics.
Practice dates will be posted later this week.
Contact me via remind app or email@example.com for any questions.
Summer workouts are officially on the books.
We will be working out at the MS gym from 12-2 on the following days:
Please bring a water bottle and workout clothes with your hair pulled back. If you have your cheer shoes by then, you may wear and if not, regular sneakers are okay. No converse style or Velcro, please.
If you have not read the post about joining Remind, please do and sign up. That is the best communication tool and the one I use.
I am awaiting the camp date approvals and will update when I have it.
Happy summer and thanks!
To Join My Class on Remind:
I am awaiting approval of dates for summer workouts and camp. Workouts start mid July and when I am confirmed I will send out dates thru Remind.
Camp is to be Aug 5-7 from 5-8 pm as of right now; I will send out via remind for that as well.
Any dates subject to change and thru Remind I can correspond with the parents and you to me.
For email instructions:
Thanks! Have a great summer!
Picture day is 9/11. We will just add a practice day to that to make it easier in case any teams running behind. The girls will have plenty of time to get ready as soon as school lets out. Ending normal practice time at 4:30.
We have not been told forms are in yet; they will go home as soon as we have them.
Uniform, cheer shoes, white ankle socks, bows and poms will be needed.
Camp info has been posted on the tab on our site. Please check it out so that you have all info that you need. Bow forms went home today. They are due no later than August 5. If you will not be attending camp, that money needs to be turned in at one of our summer workouts prior to camp. Practices for the regular season begin August 28th. That week we will practice from 2:30-4:30 after school on the 28th and 29th. We meet at the bathroom by the MS cafeteria each time we have a game/practice. Both JV and Varsity will practice together on non game days. Practice schedules will go up as soon as I have confirmed the extra two games that we will be cheering for for Red and White squads. Any day we have a game, that squad will practice from 2:30-3:15 then head down to field for game. That will count as a practice day for that squad. Thanks and stay tuned as we have more info available.
