We understand SUMMER is upon us and VACATIONS are planned well in advance! For this reason once you receive your introductory email from your childs coach approx. 1 week prior to our first practice PLEASE inform them of ANY practices that will be missed during the month of August. We ask that you understand that your child may not have FULL participation in any routine until they can be 100% in attendance! We do our best but CHEERLEADING is a TEAM SPORT! Without the ENTIRE TEAM at ALL times the routine suffers!
ALL practices are held at Dermond Field
Practices begin to taper off to two nights a week once school begins throughout the month of September. Nights depend on the Coaches availability. We are ALL volunteers!
ALL GAMES are mandatory! If your child misses more than two games during our regular season they will and will be removed from ANY routines performed during HALFTIME and will no longer be eligable for our COMPETITION program. This is so the teams can progress.
Regular Season games begin the weekend of September 4th and every weekend throughout September and October. Games are usually Saturdays but can somtimes be played on a Sunday due to an organizations field permit. This is out of our control!
ALL our HOME games are played at Dermond Field!
RAIN...it happens! If your childs practice iscancelled due to rain you will be notified as soon as possible! Games are usually played in the rain! if the game is played the Cheerleaders are expected to cheer! PLEASE DO NOT ASSUME your childs game is canceled due to Rain! If for some reason games are cancelled you will be contacted directly by your childs coach or it will be posted on the Drexel Hill Raiders Facebook page!
What your child will need for practice: Light weight athletic clothing (NO JEANS, JEAN Shorts or DRESSES, Tutus etc.), athletic sneakers, hair pulled of their face, NO JEWELRY, NO BEADS OR ANYTHING HANGING FROM HAIR.... MUST BRING A WATER BOTTLE (with their name on it) TO EVERY PRACTICE!
