*NEW- Cheer Camp and Clinics
Included in your registration fee is a one week Spirit Camp, scheduled for July 23rd-July 26th, 6-8pm. We encourage all cheerleaders to attend, as we will be teaching and reviewing cheer basics. This will give the cheerleaders a chance to all start the season on equal footing.
Practices will be Mondays through Thursdays starting July 30th from 6-8pm. Unless otherwise notified, practices will be held at Davis Senior High School. When school begins, practices will be 5:30-7:30pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Games will be on Saturdays.
Cheerleaders are required to wear cheer shoes (included in the DJBD Spirit Pack) at all practices, along with the assigned practice uniform. This is not only to encourage a team atmosphere, but helps with safety concerns. Street clothes and shoes, and some looser athletic clothing, can hinder safe tumbling and stunting. Flyers are required to have cheer shoes on in order to practice/perform stunts.ˆ
As a big part of cheerleading, we will include stunting as part of our routines. Our coaches and instructors are trained to keep our cheerleaders safe and will always provide spotting and close supervision. Our season will begin with cheer specific conditioning that is conducive to safe stunting.
The safety of our cheerleaders is paramount. Stunt teams will be chosen carefully according to strength, skill, ability to focus, level of teamwork, and attitude. Unexcused absences will be grounds for being replaced on a stunt team.
For additional safeguards, at least one Parent Coach will be present during practices and games to provide spotting, mentorship, and extra good judgement.
Attendance & Games
Games will be on all Saturdays until the end of October, beginning August 19th (Subject to change). Showcase will be the first weekend in October. Competition will be in early November. Attendance at practice is required in order to participate in half-time routines, showcase and competition.
Coaches & Instructors
We are in need of Parent Coaches, Head Instructors (must have experience), Assistant Instructors (must be at least 15 years old). If interested, please contact the DJBD Cheer Coordinator
