2022 Summer Cheering 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

The PAA dues are $20 per family, and the basic uniform fee is $133. Registration fees are:
Flag squad: $82
Minor, Junior, Senior squads: $152

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

Registration fees will be due at the first practice, and the uniform fees will be due the 2nd week of August

What does this cost include?

This registration fee includes service fees for our online registration system, a one day cheer camp and two cheer competitions. For the Minor, Junior and Senior squads the fee also includes the price for competition choreography with a local cheer gym. 

How do I sign up my child for cheering?
On our website, click on the Login button. Add your child's information to your account, then you should see the correct cheer squad available for signups.

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

What are the cheer camps? Are they required?

Our squads will attend cheer camp to learn basics in jumps, stunts, cheers, dances and more! We've done this several times over the past few years, and it has been an amazing experience! Typically, the Flag cheerleaders will attend the camp from 9am to noon, and the other squads will attend from 9am to 3pm (and will need to bring a lunch).

Also, the Minor, Junior and Senior squads will attend a cheer choreography camp to learn the choreography for our cheer competitions.

It is not required that anyone attend these camps (although the costs for these camps are already included in the registration fees). We know that families are on vacation and traveling during the summer. But we do highly recommend you arrange for your child to attend. This event is not only a lot of fun, but the teams learn cheer skills as well as get to do some serious team bonding!

What is the practice schedule? Where will practices be held?

It's a little different for the Flag, Minor, Junior and Senior squads. The first practice for all squads will be held the 2nd week of July. The Flag squad typically practices once or twice a week for 45 minutes, while the Minor, Junior and Senior squads practice for an hour to an hour and 15 minutes, two or three times per week. The practice days and times have not been set yet, but coaches help decide our practice times!!! Once we have our cheer coaches signed up, we can make our official practice schedule. We will keep our PAA cheer families updated as soon we get the schedule. 

All practices will be held at Providence Elementary School.

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.
