Cheer FAQ

Cheerleading Equipment:

The Panthers make every attempt to provide your child with first class equipment. We spend a great deal of time during the off-season cleaning, inspecting and inventorying the cheer uniforms.  

  • Game Uniform: After the season officially commences, in early July, your child will be issued the following pieces of cheerleading equipment; game cheerleading uniform (consisting of one top and one bottom) and socks. At which time you should have read and signed the uniform agreement regarding care, alterations and returning of the uniform.
  • Practice Uniform: Additionally, your cheerleader will receive a spirit uniform (consisting of a t-shirt and shorts) to wear during the jamboree, first few games and practices (yours to keep at the end of the season).

The items you will need to purchase/provide are bloomers, hair bows and shoes. For practices your child should dress in shorts, t-shirt and tennis/cheer shoes (without knobby bottoms). Although cheer shoes are not mandatory, we strongly recommend you purchase them, for safety reasons. When the squad performs stunts, mounts or tumbling cheer shoes become a necessity. The fee for your child’s shoes MUST be paid before they are ordered (cheer shoes cost on average $50).  Please do not make any purchases until after speaking with your coach or team support.
