2022-2023 CHS Varsity Cheer Tryout Information Dear Athlete and Parents, We are so excited that you have chosen to try out for the CHS Varsity Cheer team. Before tryouts begin, there are certain responsibilities that you need to know. Cheerleaders are a representation of Conway High and should behave accordingly. Any inappropriate or disrespectful behavior will be dealt with at the discretion of the соaches. • If you make the cheer team, it is not just a commitment during school hours; it also requires time outside of school. These out-of-school times will be mandatory, and no absence except another school activity or unforeseen emergency (such as illness or death in the family) will be excused. These out of school commitments include, but are not limited to, camps and stunt clinics, afterschool and summer practices, football and basketball games, morning pep rallies, fundraising events, etc. • Football season starts in August and basketball season does not end until the 2nd week of March. We will attend all varsity football games (Fridays) and basketball games (Tuesdays and Fridays). If you are involved in competitive (non school affiliated) sports, please know that your school cheer obligations come first. There is a financial obligation for competition cheer choreography/clinic, stunt clinics, and cheer accessories. The first payment of $300 will be due by April 12 at the mandatory CHEERLEADER/PARENT MEETING. Additional payments (amount will vary depending on items needed) will be due April 27 and May 20. New cheerleaders to the varsity team can expect to pay more than a returning varsity cheerleader. • Please see the following page with the MANDATORY DATES for practices and camp. your son/daughter makes the team, he/she will be expected to be at each practice and event that is listed. Please schedule your summer vacations, work schedule, and church camps accordingly. Failure to attend practice could result in disciplinary actions and/or result in not making the competition team. We will also plan to attend 1-3 regional competitions prior to the State Competition beginning in November. If
