Recreational Cheerleading

We offer recreational cheerleading for ages 7-14. Cheerleaders are separated by age.  For more information on age breakdown please see the ages tab.

 

Cheering Season

The cheering season begins with uniform fitting which will take place the first week of practice.  At this time cheerleaders will be fitted for uniforms and shoes.  Uniforms and shoes will not be distributed until just prior to our first game.  Practice will begin Monday, July 9th at 6:30pm.  Practices will be held Monday – Friday from 6:30pm – 8:30pm until schools starts.  Once school starts practice will be held Tuesday – Thursday 6:30pm-8:30pm.

Our cheer season consists of a pre-season jamboree, a 10 game schedule, conference playoffs as well as competitions. The conference championship is typically held the weekend prior to Thanksgiving.  All regular season games are generally held on Saturdays.

**Please remember that a minimum of 50% of the balance must be paid prior to uniform fitting day in order for your child to be eligible to cheer.**

What is included in the cost of registration?

What is expected of me as a parent?

As a parent, you will be required to volunteer in our concession stand or work gate for a minimum of 4 hours per child.  This is a non-profit organization and the responsibility falls on all of us to do our part.

If you are not staying at the field with your child for practice, please ensure you arrive to pick up your child prior to 8:30pm when practice ends.  No child should be left at the field after this time. 

We also encourage parents to get involved and cheer it up on game day.  The more CJT fans in the stands the louder we can be!

What happens if it looks like rain or is raining?

Football is played in almost any weather, so we practice football and cheerleading in the rain. You need to always bring your child to the field.  If it looks like it might rain, STAY WITH YOUR CHILD. DO NOT LEAVE! In the event that practice is cancelled before 6:00pm, please check our website under the news section or our Facebook page. You may also call 727-799-5230 and listen to the recording.  If neither state that practice has been cancelled, you should report to the field and stay with your child.  The CJT board may not cancel practice until after 6:30pm.  Again, STAY WITH YOUR CHILD!
