7th and 8th Grade Girls interested in Competitive Cheer

Are you a 7th or 8th grade girl from CMS or WMS interested in participating in PCMS Competitive Cheer?  We would like to invite you to our FREE cheer clinic on Thursday, October 25 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the wrestling room at Portage Central High School.  You will learn the basics of cheerleading, including: motions, jumps, tumbling and other skills.  We will also be happy to answer any of your questions about competitive cheer and the upcoming season.  No prior cheerleading or gymnastics experience is necessary.  This is for you to try on this sport to see if it is a good fit!  You must have a signed waiver to participate.  

If you decide that competitive cheer fits you, you are invited to our informational parent meeting and a short practice on Monday, October 29 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Portage Central High School common area.  We will practice on Tuesday, October 30 and Thursday, November 1 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the wrestling room at Portage Central High School.  We will announce how teams will be divided and the rest of the practice schedule that week.
