3.  Please wear shorts or sweat pants and comfortable sneakers during practice.  No jeans, Capri’s, or skirts of any kind. To prevent injury, sneakers need to be a good, firm sneaker and should be made for running and not for casual wear.  Hooded sweatshirts are not allowed while stunting.   You will not be allowed to practice if not dressed appropriately. There will be no gum chewing and jewelry shall not be worn during practice or games. Only clear/sheer pink nail polish may be worn on game days.

4.  Please make sure that the above practice times do not conflict with other activities.  Cheerleaders are expected to be at each practice and both home/away games.   From August to November, cheerleading must be a priority.   Practice nights designated based on the availability of assigned Head Coach but are usually designed between Monday – Thursday starting at 6:00pm.  

5.  Physical form must be valid for current year and handed in by first practice in order for cheerleader to participate.

6.  Parents must pick up their cheerleaders immediately after practice. Girls will not be allowed to leave with anyone other than their parent unless prior notice is given to the coach by a note or phone call.   Coaches are not responsible for providing transportation for your cheerleader to/from practice.

7.  Depending on whether the Varsity football team for each squad yields a JV team, cheerleaders may be required to cheer at home JV football games, in addition to cheering for the Varsity football team. 

8.  Cheerleader may be required to arrive at all games 1 to 1.5 hours before game time.

9.  All practices, games, scheduled community events and competitions (if applicable) are mandatory. If you must be absent, you must notify your coach ahead of time.  Absences during the week may result in suspension of cheering during one or more quarters of a game or half-time routine.  Missing and/or late to run-through practices held on game day, will also result in suspension of cheering during one or more quarters of a game or half-time routine.

13.  OGB will be participating in one cheerleading competition on November 15th. Competition is not mandatory but does require 110% commitment.  All competition practices will be mandatory.  If participating in competition, practices are in addition to recreational cheerleading practices. Competition squads will be determined based on the number of cheerleaders, ages, practice/game attendance, and effort. Competition fee is $30 per girl and must be paid in full prior to the start of competition practice 

14.  Bert Bell requires all cheerleaders (except Flag) and players to have a photo ID badge (date/time to be determined).

You are also stating that you will take special care of your daughter’s uniform. If anything is returned damaged or not returned at all, you will have to reimburse OGB. You are also promising to support your daughter through this season by getting her to all games and practices on time.
