The purpose of the Hanover Cheerleading Program is to provide a safe and positive program that offers both competitive and noncompetitive cheerleading for the residents of Hanover.
Sideline Cheer is offered to grades 1-8. Participants will be placed on a team of 25 girls, divided into the following non-competitive teams:
Mighty Mites : grades 1 - 2
Mites : grades 3 - 4
Pee Wees : grades 5 - 6
Midgets : grades 7 - 8
All teams will cheer at weekly games, both home and away as well as regular and postseason. Practices will begin the week of August 15th. Coaches will access the skill set and ability of each team and determine how often they practice .
Registration is open for 3 weeks at the base rate of $125.00. There will be an additional one week late registration period with a $35.00 late fee added. Once formal registration closes a Waitlist may be created to accept additional participants.
Registrants who join the Waitlist and pay in full will be added to teams if room allows. If we are unable to place a child on a team a full refund will be issued back to the credit card used to make payment. Paid participants will be added in the order they joined the waitlist.
Competition Cheer is offered to grades 3 - 8 and divided into the following competitive teams:
Mites : grades 3-4
Pee Wees : grades 5-6
Midgets : grades 7-8
All participants must try-out in order to make a competitive team. Participants will be judged in several different categories and receive scores based on their skill set and level of ability. Those with the highest scores will be placed on a competitive team with 2 alternates. Practices will begin in September in preparation for the 3 competitions in November.
* Girls MUST be able to SAFELY execute all jumps and stunts in order to make a competitive team as safety is our number one priority!
All girls must participate in Sideline Cheerleading in order to be considered for the Competition Team.
Competition Tryouts will be held in early September 2020
Comp Registration: Fee: $200
We are always looking for coaches and assistants for all teams. Anyone with cheer experience who would like to coach can email Maura with a short description of their cheer experience. All volunteers selected to help coach must fill out an HYAA Cori prior to working with the girls.
