Cheerleaders may wear a leotard or shorts and a t-shirt that will stay tucked in. Socks are optional for school-age classes but are required in the Funtastics Program.

Each child will progress at his or her own pace. The instructor will inform students and parents when it is time to move on to the next class or team program. This may occur at any time, whenever a student is ready. If the students or parents have questions about advancement, it is perfectly OK to ask the instructor. That is what we are here for.
