Welcome to GORC Cheerleading-Home of the Wildcats!!
Fall Cheer will be here before we know it!
Registration for our 2018 Fall Cheer season will open May 1, 2018. Early bird registration will run May 1- Jun 15, 2018. Late registration will be open from Jun 15 - Jul 1, 2018. A late fee of $25.00 will be applied to all registrations occurring after June 15, 2018. Our Fall registration fee will be $145.00 per athlete plus a $60.00 GORC Family fee.
This season we will offer 2 team categories. Traditional sideline cheer and Competitive Cheer. Both options will cheer for our football teams, however our competitive teams will take on more of a time commitment and financial obligation.
Our sideline cheer teams will cheer for football games throughout the season. Football games generally start late August and run through November. Games are generally played on Saturdays but some may be played on a Friday evening or Sunday. Our sideline cheer teams will cheer for both home and away games.
In addition to cheering at football games, the teams will compete at 3 local competitions. There will also be 3 mandatory practices @ All Seasons Athletics in Millersville, MD (dates TBD). Fees associated with practices at All Seasons are covered in your registration. We have deemed these practices necessary as they help the athletes familiarize themselves with a spring floor mat. Spring floor mats will be used during all competitions and these practices are the only instance we can introduce the athletes to the spring floor mat.
Our competitive cheer experience will include sideline cheer, certified tumbling classes through All Season Athletics, higher level stunting and a competitive routine that is performed at 10-12 cheer competitions. This program will run July 2018 - April 2019. Participation on our competitive teams are by tryouts only. For additional information on this program, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Practice for our Fall sideline cheer teams will start on Aug 6, 2018. Practices in August will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00-8:00pm at GORC park. Practices will move indoors starting in September. Once practices move indoors, exact days and times will vary based on school availability, age group and coach availability.
2018 COMPETITION DATES:
***Check back frequently for competition dates***
Each competition venue will have a spectator fee and will vary from location and venue. Spectator fees range from $10-20.00/ per person.
*Please be sure you will be able to commit to these dates and below requirements before registering*
All cheerleaders are required to purchase a uniform. If you did not previously cheer with GORC, you will need to purchase a uniform. The uniform fee is around $200.00 for all required items. New this season we will offer a buy back program for any cheerleader not returning to the program. Buy/sell back uniforms will be advertised to incoming athletes at a reduced cost. We will allow outgoing families to sell their gently used, stain free uniforms (skirt, vest, shoes only) to an incoming family for a fee of $75.00. Shoes will be an additional fee and will be based on the quality of the shoe. Any outgoing families and/or incoming families interested in this option should make plans to attend the first fitting as we will not offer this option on any other fitting date or time. We will offer 3 different fittings.
***Please note: If your athlete is unable to attend one of the scheduled fittings she will not be allowed to cheer. We cannot offer additional fittings past the dates we will have scheduled.***
UNIFORM FITTING DATES
Tumbling classes are offered at All Seasons Athletics as an additional option. Tumbling classes are not mandatory, but are highly encouraged as tumbling is an important skill for cheerleaders. If your athlete is interested in attending tumbling classes more information can be provided by the coach.
Finally Registration fills up quickly- So don’t hesitate, Register your cheerleader early to secure her spot.
We are looking forward to another exciting cheer season!!!!
