Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the pre-season meeting tonight! If you did not make the meeting please look over the attached .pdf documents that were available to take home. Here is a recap of some of the important information. These are just events, please read the .pdf documents for updated policies including the necessary time commitment, monetary commitment and cheerleader expectations.
OPEN PRACTICES: Starting April 3rd the Scioto Cheer coaches will be hosting open practices on Wednesdays from 5:00 - 6:30pm in the DSHS Cafeteria. They will be run like regular Scioto Cheer practices with stretching and conditioning followed by working on skills. These open practices can be attended by ANYONE at Davis Middle School or Scioto as long as the participant has a valid physical on file with the athletic trainers. These are your ONLY opportunities to be coached before the tryout clinics begin. Coaches will be observing only at tryouts.
LIFTING: Off season lifting with Coach Jones is Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3:30pm in the DSHS weight room. All current Scioto students interested in trying out for cheerleading who are not participating in a spring sport should be attending lifting.
TRYOUTS: There are three clinics and one performance day. The clinics are the mornings of Tuesday May 28th, Wednesday May 29th and Thursday May 30th. The tryout performance in front of judges will be Friday May 31st. During the clinics the Scioto Cheer coaches will be observing ONLY, we will not be coaching. (Come to the open practices for coaching!) We will be observing how the participants are treating each other, attitudes and other factors that make up a good teammate and coachable cheerleader. These observations will determine the coach's score that is a portion of your tryout score. There will be more information on the specifics of tryouts, including a form to register, soon!
