Practice will begin on July 22, and be located at the fairgrounds Peyton Rd. entrance. Initially, everyone will practice as one group. The group will be divided when the football teams have been split into their divisions. At this time, coaches will be assigned to specific divisions, and cheerleaders will practice with their group for the rest of the season (exception: competition practice). Practices will be held Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 until 7:30. Please remember that cheerleading is a team sport, and your squad and coaches depend on you. There are routines which require specific planning and placement, and we have to be able to depend on everyone be there, be on time and to do their part. Practices are MANDATORY. If you don't practice, you don't cheer game day. Allowances may be made on a case by case basis. Please inform your coach ahead of time if you can't make practice. Repeated absences and/or tardies could result in removal from the squad with no refund. Please inform coaches if you will not be able to remain with your child for the duration of practice. We ask that parents attend practices because there is alot of information (especially during season) that is passed along. If you cannot stay with your child, please give the coach phone numbers and emergency contacts. Just as we expect your child to arrive at practice on time, we expect your child to be picked up on time. If late pick-ups become habitual, your child may be removed from the squad.
Game schedules are provided by TYFA, and will be posted on the "NEWS" tab as soon as they become available to us. Please keep in mind that schedules can and do change. TYFA deadline for changes is Thursday prior to game day, and for that reason, some schedules may not be posted until Thursday evening. There will be 8 regular season games. Depending on win/loss, there could be 1 or 2 playoff games plus the championship game in November in addition to regular season. Games (regular season & post season), like practices, are mandatory.

In the event your team has a bye week, your squad may be assigned to cheer with another division. If transportation to a game is a problem, please bring it up with your coach and/or the director. We will work with you to find a solution.
During warmer months, cheerleaders will wear well-fitting shorts, shirts, socks and tennis shoes for practice. No belly shirts, no short-shorts, no flip-flops or sandals. As the temperature drops, appropriate practice attire will include sweat pants or yoga pants, and long sleeved t-shirts or sweatshirts. The child should be able to tuck in the shirt so it does not rise while doing stunts or tumbling. The basic uniform must be worn for all games and TYFA events. Proper footwear (tennis shoes - solid white for games & events) is required for safey. No jewelry is allowed.
Our cheerleaders are considered representatives of their team, our league and TYFA as a whole. For this reason, there will be no offensive language (coaches & directors determination) or fighting. Good sportsmanship and teamwork is expected. If there is a problem with another member of the squad, another parent or adult, please discreetly bring it to the attention of the coach(es) and director(s) in a timely manner. We do not want to air dirty laundry in front of the girls. Poor conduct, lack of respect toward coaches, other cheerleaders and other LYFCA members will not be tolerated and could result in removal from the squad. Continual behavior problems will not be tolerated. If parents must bring siblings to practice, please ensure they are not disruptive to practice.
