Welcome to Rockford Youth Cheer 2017! My name is Renee Dengler and this is my second year directing this level this year, but I am not new to directing/coaching this AMAZING sport! I am also starting my 19th year coaching at Rockford High School as the Varsity Fall Sideline Cheer Coach.
Registration dates for Rockford Youth Cheer are June 29th and July 27th at North Rockford Middle School from 6-8pm. Please remember to bring your Payment, Liability Form and Cheerleader Info Sheet - BOTH completely filled out! Checks for the season can be made out to LYNNE ROTIER (our program treasurer). This is for 2017/18 grades 3rd through 6th. Registration ends on July 27th.
Registration Fee: $50 per cheerleader
We practice once a week with the RHS Varsity Cheer Team starting August 21st. We cheer at 7 football games on Saturdays starting on September 9th and the season ends on October 21st. Our practice schedule will be Mondays 6:00pm -7:15pm at/outside the RHS cafeteria. Games will be held at either North/East Rockford Middle School or at RHS in The TED! Games are mostly in the mornings.
Cost break down is different this year! If you are NEW to the program, you will need to pay the $50 program fee AND order the required items. If you were in the program last year, you will need to pay the $50 program fee and any additional items that you need to replace. If your tee/zip up/skort/poms are in good shape from last year – you do not need to reorder them! You will be asked to provide a half time snack for your team for one of the games. Photos are taken by Douglas Photography once our season begins (optional purchase). Required (you purchase on your own) – white tennis/cheer shoes, black leggings and gloves/scarfs/hats in orange/black/white.
Cheer Coaches (moms) are needed this season for each team! Material will be taught to the athletes by the Varsity Cheer Team and the Varsity athletes will also be attending the games on Saturdays. Team Coaches will be at each game to help keep the athletes focused and be an ‘adult presence’. I will help with communication for the entire program and also provide a list of all of the material taught and a breakdown of what to do each game J No cheer experience is required, we just need a little of your time each week! Please mark it on your athletes sheet if you are interested in being a Cheer Coach this year for one of our teams!
Looking forward to an AWESOME season on the sidelines with the Youth Cheerleaders! Thanks and GO RAMS!!!
