Spirit Non-Competing Teams
Non-competitive teams will:
Practice one day per week- 1.5 hours for ages 8 and older and 1 hour for ages 4-7. Tumbling class is not required for non-competitive teams but is highly recommended.
- This is a new uniform Year. Spirit Teams will be ordering team wear consisting of a tank, bow and either shorts or a skirt. White cheer shoes can be purchased on Amazon. A link for approved cheer shoes is posted on the website blog at the first of each season.
- Perform at our Christmas Recital as well as our Cheer Showcase in the Spring! Each team will have the opportunity to bring at least 1 show routine as well as multiple cheers and side line style dances to the studio performances. Although our non-competitive teams will not be performing around the community, they will be learning more material throughout the cheer season and will perform more at the studio recitals. Last year was the first year of having an all cheer and tumbling showcase. It was very successful and we will continue to add more routines so each team has more performance time!
- As members of the Utah High School Prep Association, all athletes (competitive and non-competitive) will follow our Stunt Progression Chart. This means that every athlete will have to pass off each skill in order to move on to more difficult stunts. The Stunt Progression Chart will ensure that every athlete being coached in our program will have a knowledge of correct stunting technique and safety will continue to be our number one priority!
Our non-competitive teams focus on proper technique and safety in basic stunts and tumbling, cheer motions and jumps, sideline dance and crowd involvement. An emphasis is placed on safety and building a solid understanding of cheerleading as athletes progress. The goal of our non-competitive cheer and technique class is to prepare athletes to join one of our competitive teams!
These changes are going to ensure the safety of all of our athletes and will build stronger athletes individually. They will be able to focus on the basics of cheerleading and build their technique and knowledge.
