Team Selection:
Open to all interested athletes, boys and girls, in the 7th and 8th grade.

The Cheerleading Team consists of a varsity squad and additional squads determined by the number of participating athletes. Tryouts are held to determine squad placement only, not for the purpose of eliminating interested athletes. Tryouts are held in the spring for the following school year.

Participants earn their positions based upon performance during the tryout.  A selection committee may consist of the A. D., individuals selected by the Athletic Committee, coaches, and a faculty member appointed by the principal.  Immediate family members of athletes being evaluated will not be allowed to participate on the selection committee.  Each participant is evaluated using the St. Peter Catholic School Athletic Committee evaluation form.  All members of this committee shall have an equal voice when evaluating players.

Season:
September – February

Participation:
A minimum of four (4) cheerleaders must be available to cheer.

Team members must show written proof of completing a mandatory safety camp or provide written evidence of safety training prior to performing any tumbling or formation routines. Lack of written proof does not exclude the athlete from performing routine cheers and chants.

Practice Time:
Each team will have time allocated up to two times a week.

Uniform:
The school provides the shell, half top, and skirt.  The cheerleader must provide white shoes and socks, bloomer, and bow.
