What are the costs?

FAMILY DISCOUNT:
If you are registering more than one child for football and cheer season, you will receive a discount on the second (and third and forth, if applicable) child's registration fee (see chart above). In order for the registration system to recognize that your family is registering multiple players, please register all of your players at this time AND answer the questions on the Registration Information page carefully and accurately. Failure to do so may result in a forfeiture of your family's discounted rates. 

Cheer and Football registration will be separate this year.  If you have children registering for both Cheer and Football we will provide promo codes once the football registration is available.

PRIORITY CHEERLEADING REGISTRATION is available the first 2 weeks of registration for returning cheerleaders who registered for the 2020 season. Cheerleaders must be in good standing and fulfilled their required volunteer time from the 2019 season.

New cheerleaders can still sign up now, but will be put on a reserve list for the first two weeks of registration, in order of completed registration. If the team is not full, then you will be guaranteed a spot. We expect the cheer teams to fill up to maximum capacity again this year. 

CHEER UNIFORMS:
We are requiring parents to purchase uniforms this year. You will have the opportunity to pre-season fundraise or opt out for $140. The uniforms will be the property of the cheerleader and her family.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What do the registration fees include? 
A: Your registration fees include practice facility space, choreography, music, competition bow, 3 IRCA competitions, State and $25 of fun money.

Q: Why are fees more expensive this year than in past years?

A: At this time, yes masks will be worn at all times. Per IRCA, face masks will be required for all teams that are stunting with the exception of tumblers.
