Cheerleading is a very physically demanding sport. In order for all players to have a safe, fun and successful season, it is imperative for our athletes to participate in all practices. Head Coaches determine the exact practice schedule and attendance policy for his/her team. Cheer season begins August 1st. During the month of August, teams practicing 10 hours a week. This is usually 4- 2.5 practices, with the first 2 weeks dedicated to conditioning. After Labor Day, the practice schedule is reduced to 6 hours per week. With weeks running Monday through Sunday.

Games will be scheduled for Saturday or Sunday. The game of play season is 8 weeks long. Games are the Labor DAy weekend and run until the middle of October, unless your team makes the play-offs. Travel to away games is the responsibility of the parents. There are 19 Associations in our Southern Connecticut League. The furthest travel points are Hartford and Danbury. The 10U, 12U and 14U (Jr. Pee Wee, Pee Wee, Jr. Varsity) divisions are all eligible for post season play based on record and can last through the first full week in December. In addition, to the commitment to sideline cheering for  football, cheer will compete in no less than 2 local (CT) competitions during the month of October, with the possibility of advancement to a Regional competition in Massachusetts. There is the potential of advancing to the National Championship, the second full week in December the 7th-14th at Walt Disney World Resorts in Orlando, Florida. Finally there is the potential to advance to World's, a competition held February 8th in Atlantic City, NJ.

The league is not responsible for travel costs for the players but will assist in a monetary donation to the teams when possible. Mitey Mites and Tiny Mites are eligible for a post-season jamboree, which is usually the first or second weekend after the regular season ends. Tiny Mite and Mitey Mite Cheer will participate in an exhibition fashion at the two local competitions in CT during the month of October.
