WHEN CAN I SIGN UP FOR CHEERLEADING?
Registration for the 2018 Fall Season has begun and will remain open until July 1, 2018. Online registration with payment received must be completed by June 30th to guarantee a spot on the cheer squad. Spots fill up fast, so make sure to register early.
WHY DOES REGISTRATION OCCUR SO EARLY?
Per Bux-Mont and Pop Warner deadlines and rules, registration needs to be completed in a timely manner. Preliminary rosters are due at the May League Meeting. The number of cheer squads with age and level details are due by July 1st. Therefore, all paperwork associated with registration needs to be collected prior to these mandated dates in order to be in compliance for the season. It is early, but it also gives the coordinator(s) and coaches a head start on the season, which can only be a benefit in the long run.
WHY IS MY CHILD’S REPORT CARD REQUIRED?
Pop Warner is the largest youth football and cheerleading organization in the world. From the vast experience gained from such a large organization, Pop Warner understands that sports are a supplement and enhancer to being successful in the classroom, therefore, Pop Warner places great emphasis on scholastics and annually recognizes excellence in the classroom with awards and scholarships, requiring submission of this information during the registration process.
WHY DO YOU NEED SO MUCH PAPERWORK?
Pop Warner has strict rules requiring such paperwork. Large amounts of paperwork are also required to promote safety and fair play. Verification of birth dates and geographical limitations of residency prevent organizations from recruiting and stacking their teams. The paperwork is very basic and necessary to create a fair environment to learn and enjoy football and cheerleading. According to league regulations, without complete paperwork, players are not able to begin practicing in August and may be removed from the team if too many practices are missed due to this reason.
WHAT IF MY CHILD WEARS EYEGLASSES?
Eyeglasses are fully acceptable but MUST be secured by a sports band that is not knotted or containing beads to ensure that they are safely held to the head.
HOW CAN I VOLUNTEER?
Volunteering is greatly appreciated and the program would not run smoothly without great parent volunteers. Please let the cheer coordinator(s) know of your interest to volunteer so tasks can be assigned. Also, keep an eye out for volunteers sign-ups emails and requests throughout the season. Volunteering for some portion of activities in a given season is required, but if you choose to opt out of volunteering, a fee will incur upon registration or at the season’s completion.
HOW CAN I VOLUNTEER TO COACH?
We are always looking for cheerleading head coaches and assistant coaches. If you or someone you know may be interested, please reach out to the cheer coordinators.
Clearances and other paperwork will need to be up-to-date prior to the fall season.
