West Chester Area School District Activity Fee –
This fee must be paid directly to the West Chester Area School District. West Chester East nor cheerleading has anything to do with this payment.
The activity fee for participation in extra-curricular activities remains unchanged for the 2014-2015 school year. The fees for participation are as follows: High School: $75/ Middle School: $50/ Elementary School: $25/ The maximum per family is capped at $200
Our district is committed to ensuring that no student will be denied extracurricular activity participation because of a concern regarding cost, therefore we also provide information regarding financial help. In order to help parents with a convenient, fair and seamless payment process, the district is again using PayForIt, an on line method of making a payment.
Directions for using this system can be found on individual school websites and on your school’s athletic homepage. Please do not make payment until your son/daughter has been rostered into a funded activity.
The following payment deadlines have been established: 2 weeks prior to the start date of the activity/sport.
If you have questions, please contact Dr. Robert Sokolowski, Director of Secondary Education at firstname.lastname@example.org.
West Chester East Parent /Cheerleader Agreement
MAKING JV VS. VARSITY
Can Freshman make Varsity ? Yes
Can Seniors make JV ? Yes
Can I make the competition team, but not the Jv or Varsity team? No
EXPECTATIONS FOR MAKING JV:
The squad is not only built with cheerleaders who have skill, but those that
have determination, heart, and a GREAT attitude. This team is
a preparatory team for those who are interested in making the
Varsity squad, but who have not met the requirements as of yet to make
the higher level team. This is not to say that you do not have quality
attributes, but that you may need fine tuning and some extra work in order
to be prepared for the next season.
If you make the JV squad you will be required to attend every game
during the football season and we will continue through basketball season.
You will not be required to attend tumbling; however it would be a good
idea, if you are interested in cheering Varsity. The only stipulations with
JV is that if you quit, you will not be allowed to tryout for either of the
squads the following year. So, be sure that you really want to be on this
squad. The coaches make the decision based on all tryouts and how each
applicant scored. NOONE IS GUARANTEED A POSITION.
EXPECTATIONS FOR MAKING VARSITY:
We have become a competitive team and therefore it is very competitive
to make this squad. Solid Elite stunting Skills are necessary, sharp
motions, tumbling, solid dance skills. Maturity is a must and an
understanding that behavior is expected to be appropriate in every way.
This expectation is for JV as well of course.
EXPECTATIONS FOR THE COMPEITION SQUAD:
Coaches will pick the competition squad from ALL members. Typically
the Varsity members make the competition team. If we need more
members, we pull from the JV. If a JV has risen to the challenge, they may
beat out a spot of a Varsity member. Our Game Day team may have
alternates or JV members.
We believe that with Varsity comes great responsibility and our season is
extremely long. Be prepared for long, hard practices with all-star like
difficulty. Our season stretches from tryouts to the end of February,
straight through with hardly any breaks. It takes great management of
time and grades.
You must make THIS TEAM a priority and we will not accept missing
practice. You will have your schedule well in advance and will rarely be
changed unless an emergency arises.
AS A WHOLE FOR THE PROGRAM:
In regards to academics: they come first and you must always maintain at
least a 2.0 grade point average. You can seek teacher help every day after
school, so there is no excuse for staying on top of grades. We prefer a
higher GPA than a 2.0. because we take pride in our combined GPA. If at
any point you do not maintain this OR This includes the weekly eligibility
list, you WILL run the risk of being removed from the squad permanently
and you will be replaced.
Everyone is expected to commit to the full season. If there is conflict,
please talk to the coaches in advance to possibly work your issue out. Our
season is a perfect example of how busy the college life is. It prepares
our team for the next chapter and how to budget and manage their time
If you are in trouble with ISS or OSS, coaches have the right
and power to do the same! NO EXCEPTIONS!!!!!!!
In regards to actual skill coaches are looking for the following:
And working on at least one other running pass
Basic knowledge of elite stunts (whether flyer or base)
Good tight arm movements and facials with a focus on precision!
Good enthusiasm, drive and heart to be here!
This program frowns upon quitting during the season. Coaches promote
sitting down and discussing what issue you may be having and trying to
work them out. Honor the commitment and not penalize your team.
Finish the season and if you don't want to tryout out next season, then
we can accept that.
