2018-19 Cheerleading Information

Providence Athletic Association
2019-2020 Basketball Cheering FAQ

How old does my daughter have to be to cheer?
We have 4 cheerleading squads. Flag, Minor, Junior and Senior:
Flag cheerleaders are 5 to 7 years old by Sept. 30, 2019
Minor cheerleaders are 8 to 9 years old by Sept. 30, 2019
Junior cheerleaders are 10 to 11 years old by Sept. 30, 2019
Senior cheerleaders are 12 to 14 years old by Sept. 30, 2019

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 (unless your child already has a uniform)

The PAA dues are $20, the basic cheer uniform fee is $130, and the cheer registration fee is $60. 
PAA dues and cheer registration fees are due at sign-up, and cheer uniforms fees are due in early December. 

What are the registration dates for cheering?
Tuesday, October 29th - Providence Elementary cafeteria, 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Tuesday, November 12th - AM Davis Elementary cafeteria, 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Also, this season, we are now offering online registrations!!! 
Online registration will begin on Wednesday, October 23rd and can be completed on the PAA website at through November 12th. Just click on the Register button, and start registering your athletes for either cheer or basketball!! 

When do practices start? Where are they held? How long does the season last?
Practices will be held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 6:30 to 7:45pm in the Providence Elementary school cafeteria, and our first cheer practice will be held on Tuesday, November 19th. 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.  

My child cheered during the summer cheer competition season. What fees do we need to pay for the basketball season?
If your child cheered during the 2019 summer season, you will be required to sign-up again online, and pay the $60 cheer registration fee. However, you will not be required to pay the PAA dues again, or buy any additional uniform items.

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.
