The Jr Patriots Cheer Program is an introductory and developmental sideline cheer program for students who will be attending South or Southwest Middle Schools. All our Parent Reps and Coaches are volunteers. We are a club sport, independent from Parkway Schools but that supports the Parkway South Jr Patriots Football and Basketball Programs. Registration is held each Spring. By registering for our program, you are committing to Cheer taking priority to  any  other activity that may conflict.


In this program we will provide a positive, fun introduction to basic level cheer, with focuses on proper movements, technique, spirit and etiquette. Wanting to give as many Middle Schoolers as possible the opportunity to cheer, there are no try outs, and no cuts. We don’t compete or require tumbling. We work closely with the Parkway South Varsity Cheerleaders building upon our skills each year with our goal to educate, inform and help our cheerleaders master the skills needed to be successful in high school cheer.


6th Grade focuses primarily on technique and etiquette and cheer basics, learning the Fight Song, jumps, and over 50 sideline cheers, but will not stunt .


7th Grade will be introduced to basic stunting fundamentals, and will build onto those skills, focusing on safety and technique.


8th Grade will continue to build on their existing stunting skills while learning more advanced skills throughout the season.


Camp

Each cheerleader is expected to participate in a local 2 day Cheer Camp, Aug 10th and Aug 11th, where we learn our halftime material for the season.
