Cheerleading Information

Providence Athletic Association
2022-2023 Winter Basketball Cheer FAQ

How old does my child 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:
$20 PAA dues
$63 Cheer Registration
$90 Required Cheer Uniform (includes hair bow, shirt, socks, boy shorts, warm up pants)

$55 Optional Uniform items ($40 warmup jacket, $15 cheer bag)

(If your family has already paid the $20 PAA dues for another child cheering or playing another sport this year, you don't need to pay them again to cheer)

How do I sign up my child for cheering?
Online cheer registration starts on 10/19/2022!!

On our website, click on the Register button. Add your child's information to your account, then you should see the correct cheer squad available for signups.

There is one additional form that need to be filled out during the season. You can either download and fill it out and get them back to the cheer directors at the first practice, or we will have forms available at practice

When are payments due for the season?
On December 2nd, the director will email each family with a total balance due. And PAA has the option to receive fee payments via credit card through Stripe or Cash or Check.

 What is the practice schedule? Where will practices be held? When do games start?

Cheer practices will start on Tuesday, November 15th at 6:30pm
For all practices, we have been assigned the auxiliary gym at Providence Middle School, 900 Starlight Lane, Richmond, VA 23235, on Tuesday and Wednesday nights! The Flag squad will practice from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. The other squads will practice from 6:30pm to 8pm

Then once games start in early January, we'll stop having practices since they'll know all their cheers by then! And the basketball season usually runs through the middle of March. The Chesterfield Basketball League makes up the schedules for all games during the season, but as soon as we get those schedules, we get them to the parents!

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! In addition to having lots of fun coaching our squads, our cheer coaches make up the practice schedule! So we try to setup practices when it's convenient for you!

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.
