Just a reminder, this Thursday March 12th is the fitting with the Varsity rep after school. If a cheerleader is unable to attend, a parent needs to notify us, please. We have already heard from some parents.
If a cheerleader is unable to attend the fitting on March 12th, the make-up fitting session will be March 26th at 2:30 (during advisory).
Also, remember that the signed Cheerleading Contract sheets (both of them–one for OMMS and one for Shelby County) are due March 12th.
Parents of girls trying out for cheerleading are allowed to drop off any items for their child prior to 3pm, but will not be allowed to come in the cafeteria or gym. Since we did not have Wednesday to practice and go over try out procedures with the girls, we need to meet with them and give them time to practice and ask questions before tryouts begin.
Results will be posted on the blog this evening. Students will be given a sheet of paper with information about accessing the results as they leave today. When the girls finish trying out, they will be allowed to call their parents to let them know they have finished and can be picked up.
Best of luck to all our ladies today!
Obviously the “Snow” Day cancelled our 3rd day of our Cheer Clinic this week. Clinic will NOT be rescheduled this week. Girls, you have all day today as well as after school tomorrow to practice on your own. Videos of the dance, cheer, and chant have been posted below to help you. The dance music has also been posted.
Tryouts will still be held on Friday after school. Girls will have about 30 minutes before tryouts begin to stretch, practice, and ask questions.
Current 8th grade cheerleaders are expected to help with OMMS cheer clinic and tryouts. The dates of the clinic are Feb 23-25 from 3:15-5:00. Tryouts are on Feb 27 from 3:15-?. 8th grade cheerleaders will be learning the dance and chants at the same time as the other participants, but need to be focused so they can learn quickly and help the others. They are expected to wear their uniforms for clinic days and spirit attire for tryouts.
Monday, Feb 23: Red Uniform
Tuesday, Feb 24: White Uniform
Wednesday, Feb 25: Blue Uniform
Friday, Feb 27: Gray sweatshirt, jeans, and athletic shoes
