More than just an activity...
“Cheerleading has evolved over the past twenty years from being an activity where members were selected based on their popularity to one that now claims some of the more talented athletes at school. Today, cheerleading involves skills which require the strength of football, the grace of dance, and the agility of gymnastics. Complex maneuvers are performed which challenge the limits of the body. Safety organizations such as the AACCA were formed to develop safety rules to guide programs in the safe performance of cheerleading gymnastics, which include jumps, partner stunts, pyramids and tumbling.” (www.aacca.com)
At Roswell Area Park, we offer a non-competitive cheerleading program in which some limited, local travel is required. This program serves as a solid foundation to both sideline and competitive cheer. The teams are organized by grade/age levels and will cheer for tackle football teams. Additionally, the cheerleaders perform a halftime routine at each game at which they cheer.
Registration begins in March, and participants must be registered by July 21, 2011. A Cheer Clinic is planned for July 25-28th at Hembree Park. This clinic will be led by the Roswell Jr. Hornet Cheerleaders and coaches.
