Cheering program offered by Waldoboro Recreation Department
Waldoboro — The Waldoboro Recreation Department is accepting registrations for the 2013 Waldoboro Youth Cheering Program.
The program is divided into two divisions: Sideline (kindergarten through sixth grade) and Competition (fourth through sixth grades). Practices for Sideline cheering will be Mondays from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 to 10:30 a.m., with the program beginning Monday, Nov. 18. Practices for Competition cheering will be Thursdays and Saturdays from 4 to 6 p.m., with the program beginning on Thursday, Nov. 21.
All practices will be held in the Miller School gymnasium in Waldoboro. Sideline will continue through the end of January and Competition runs through March.
Participants in the Sideline program learn basic cheering fundamentals and perform at peewee basketball games. Participants in the Competition program learn choreographed dance routines, stunts, cheers and perform at Maine Youth Cheering events. Due to competition rules, the squad size will be limited. Travel and a strong commitment to practices is required for the Competition program.
Registration fees for Sideline cheering are $25 for Waldoboro residents and $35 for non-residents. Registration fees for the Competition squad are $35 for Waldoboro residents and $45 for non-residents, plus the cost of non-returnable uniform items that may be needed.
For safety, jewelry is prohibited at practices or events, which includes new piercings.
Participants should register at the Waldoboro Recreation Department at the town office. For more information, call 832-5369.
