2021 Sudbury Youth Cheerleading
We are back in action for 2021 and cannot wait to get back on the mat and on sidelines!!
The Sudbury Youth Cheer program is designed to inspire youth through teaching dedication, teamwork, friendship, leadership and good sportsmanship. We hope to develop in your child a feeling of accomplishment and success in a fun-filled atmosphere. Our cheer coaches strive to make cheerleading a FUN learning experience with lessons that follow them far beyond the spirit of cheering.
February 1, 2021 - April 1, 2020
(some additional costs - see below for camp & uniform requirements)
*$50.00 Late Fee will apply after April 1st
*If squads are full on April 1st, your child will be placed on a waitlist.
*Registrations will not be accepted after April 15th*
*We accept all levels! As we prepare for competition, practice intensity increases. If a cheerleader has other obligations and cannot make practice on a regular basis, we can discuss the option of Sideline-Only cheer.
Cheer preseason begins in mid-August . Squad start times will vary. We will practice 4 or 5 days to get the girls game day ready. These practices are mandatory (especially for new cheerleaders), will take place outside @ LSRHS and be dependent on the weather. Some Squads will participate in a cheer camp.
Regular Season: Once school is in session, practices will move inside and focus on competition routines. Squads practice two times per week.
The season can potentially run into the second week of December, if our squads advance to that point. 8U will not go past Locals in October and 10U will likely stop after States in November. 12U and older will advance as far as they can.
Extra practices will be held for competing teams, when necessary. All practices leading up to competition are mandatory!
2021 Practice Times
Regular season practices are tentatively scheduled, and subject to change on weeks with school holidays. We aim to keep times as consistent as possible.
(Grades K- 2 )
Mondays 5:45- 7:15
Sundays 30 min. prior to game time (time will vary weekly)
(Grades 3 & 4)
Tuesdays & Thursdays 6:00-8:00
All squads will cheer for games on Sundays beginning on or after Labor Day weekend. Game times vary each week. We mostly cheer at home, but there will be weeks that we travel with the football teams. Our goal is to provide game times and locations by Wednesday night each week.
Younger squads typically cheer for SYFC flag football teams (grades 1-5, games lasting 1 hour), while our older squads cheer for the tackle teams (grades 6-8).
IMPORTANT DATES - Still TBD for 2021
EMASS INVITATIONAL (Fun Comp.) - IF we are ready (we are usually not 😉) Early October

WHAT TO WEAR TO PRACTICE
Practice outfit preferable; If unavailable, wear fitted navy/dark shorts and mostly white fitted top.
Hair should be pulled back in a tight pony tail (PLEASE do their hair before practice!).
No jewelry. (This goes for tumblers, bases and flyers - EVERYONE)
For safety reasons, all girls are required to wear cheer sneakers.
Your child will be given pom-poms, a skirt, shell, bodysuit and 2 bows. Children may keep the pom-poms and bows, but the rest of the uniform is on loan from SYFC and should be treated as such.
Additional Required Items/Expenses:
*This is an idea of what your child will need, specifics will be sent by email*
3 day Cheer Camp @ Champion Athletics, Hudson, MA *THIS IS STILL TBD for 2021*
Optional Tumbling Class on Saturdays @ MGC Sudbury

*There will be lots of optional inclement weather gear, as well as other LS cheer swag for parents and athletes, available for purchase in our online team stores.
We will provide ordering information for these items, to those registered, around April 15th. The squad needs to look uniform, so there will be specific shoes/items to purchase.
Uniforms need to be returned at the end of each season.
Families are responsible for replacing uniforms costing approximately $350 if lost, not returned or damaged (torn, bleached, altered without permission)
