Waldoboro youth cheering offered, coaches neededDeadline for program registrations extended
Waldoboro — The Waldoboro Recreation Department has extended the registration deadline for the 2012-13 Waldoboro youth cheering program, which will be divided into two divisions: Competition (fourth through sixth grade only) and Sideline (kindergarten through sixth grade).
There will be a registration session on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in the Miller School gymnasium, in addition to the first practice for the Sideline program. Practices for the Competition squad are pending as a coach is needed for the program.
Both cheering programs are scheduled to begin soon at Miller School. Sideline will continue through the end of January and Competition runs until 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 to 20, however, no previous experience is required. Travel and a strong commitment to practices is required.
Base registration cost for both programs is $25. An additional $10 for those selected to the Competition squad is required, in addition to the cost of any needed non-returnable uniform items. A $10 non-resident fee also applies.
For safety, jewelry is prohibited at practices or events, this includes new piercings.
Participants also can register at the Waldoboro Recreation Department. For more information, or if interested in coaching in the Competition program, call 832-5369.
