SYC Youth Club

General Information

For the  2019-20 Inaugural season we have two teams! The Mighty Braves are in the 8U Level 1 division and our Fierce Chiefs are in the 12U Level 2 division

What is Competitive Cheer?

The SYC Competitive Cheerleading Squad is a competitive, recreation cheer program that incorporates a cheer, dance, jumps, high level stunting, and tumbling into a choreographed 2 ½ minute routine to compete in area cheer competitions.

Who Can Participate?

Competitive cheer is open to cheerleaders within the ages of 6-12 (age is as of 8/31/2020) and in the SYCSD or surrounding Southern York County area. All participants must attend try outs in order to qualify for the team. All participants must either cheer for fall or winter sports or play another sport in order to qualify as a recreation team (and not be subject to “all star” team requirements).

What is the Commitment?

Pre-Season Tumbling: 
Participants must be enrolled in a tumbling program from June-September. The squad is planning on attending a group class at Titanium Athletics, however, independent tumbling classes are permitted if the squad class does not fit your family’s schedule. Periodic check-ins for tumbling progress must be coordinated with the coaches if you choose not to participate in the squad tumbling class.

Participants must be prepared for intensive practices to initially learn and improve the choreography of the routine from late October and continuing through February. Practices are mandatory. If a child is going to miss a practice, you must notify the coach before the practice. If a child misses 2 practices they are at risk for removal from the team. We do reserve the right to remove any child who does not report to practices and competitions. Practice takes place at Titanium Athletics.

The squad will participate in approximately 5-7 competitions from November through February. All competitions will be within a single day’s    travel distance (approximately 2-3 hours). All competitions are on either Saturdays or Sundays.

$525 program fee for Braves and Chiefs and $400 for Papooses which includes competitive squad uniform, bow, gym rental fee, competition fee, Youth Club insurance, and cost of choreography & music. Payments may be made in increments from June through September.

Additional expenses will include:

  • Indoor Cheerleading Shoes – Kaepa Stellarlyte (available from Flying Feet for $52)
  • Cheer Warm Ups – To be ordered with uniform (approximately $60)
  • Cheer Bag – To be ordered as a group with uniform (approximately $60)
  • Tumbling Classes - Either with the team or independently (as described above) (generally $11/session @ Titanium Athletics)
  • Note: The fee does not include individual discretionary travel costs associated with each competition. We encourage carpooling but travel arrangements will be the responsibility of each cheer family.

Official registration forms and payment options will be provided after tryouts/evaluations and invitations to the cheer squad are determined.
