Performance Team 2015 Season: January-May
Does your child LOVE to cheer, dance and perform and is between ages 9-11? Join the More Than Cheer Performance Team! Girls and Boys ages 9-11 that are serious about the performance aspect of cheerleading should come try out for this team. Athletes will have the opportunity to perform at least 3 times over the season at local events and venues around the Loudoun County Area! Performance Team is great for athletes who don’t want the travel and price commitment of an all-star team, or athletes who want to master their performance skills to prepare for an all-star team. Whichever direction; it’s a great stepping stone toward the personal growth of your child. Athletes are REQUIRED to try-out for performance team, if selected for the team; athletes are required and expected to attend every practice and performance. Athletes must also be enrolled in a MTC technique class as well.
Practices are held every Sunday from 12-2 AND BEGIN 01/04/2015 and once the team has been selected there will be a parent meeting to go over rules and expectations, as well as pass out the performance calendar for the season!
