Volunteers & Coaching
Each cheer squad will need a team parent! This is a great opportunity to help and get to know the other parents and girls.
If you have specific team or coach requests (such as a specific person she would like to be paired with for transportation issues or a football team to follow for family reasons) we will do our best to honor one request per child.
- Coaching Applications are due by June 10, 2016 before 5:00 P.M.
- Please see "Coaches' Corner, Football & Cheer" to register for a head-coaching position
