How old does my daughter have to be to cheer?
Please see the Chesterfield Cheerleader League Age Chart for details on the ages of the cheerleaders on the squads:
CCL Cheer Age Chart

How much does cheering with PAA cost?
Each family must pay a yearly dues fee to PAA, a cheer registration fee and the fees for a new uniform

The PAA dues are $20 per family, and the registration fee is $35. The basic cheer uniform costs $80, and includes a long sleeve shirt, a hair bow, socks and warm up pants (everything but the socks will be personalized with your child's name!). So the total for the basic uniform, plus the other fees, is $135. You can also purchase boy shorts ($10), a personalized cheer bag ($20) or a personalized warm up jacket ($40), but these items are optional. 

All fees are due at the first practice.

What are the registration dates for cheering?
Monday, November 15th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm at Providence Elementary School
Tuesday, November 16th from 7pm to 8pm at Providence Middle School
Monday, November 22nd from 6:30pm to 7:30pm at Providence Elementary School

When do practices start? Where are they held? How long does the season last?
Practices will start on Tuesday, November 16th! All practices will be held at Providence Middle School on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from 6:30pm to 8pm (some practices may be shorter). But if your schedule permits your child to only attend practices one of those days per week, we still welcome your family to participate!

Then, when basketball games start (in early January) we will only need to practice once a week for a few weeks, then we'll just stop practices (they'll definitely know all the cheers by then!). And the season usually ends in early March

What days/times are the basketball games?
For previous seasons, basketball games started in early January, and were held on Saturdays and Sundays. Once the Chesterfield Basketball League announces the season's game schedule, we will let our cheer parents know.  

How can we (the parents) help?
Great question! :) We are always in need of cheer coaches, team parents, volunteers  with fundraising and lots of other activities.
And if you are interested in helping to coach, previous cheering experience is great, but you do not need to have cheered before!

So please let us know if you would like to help! PAA is a volunteer organization, and we definitely need all of our parents to participate and assist in order to be successful.
