*\o/* Welcome to the Fairport Raiders Cheerleading Homepage *\o/*

***Please make sure you read the entire page! We are changing some things up for the 2020 season!***

*Practices start August 3rd, 2020. In August we practice 4 nights a week (Monday-Thursday) for A, B and C teams 6pm-8pm. Our flag team will practice 3 nights a week (Tuesday-Thursday) 6pm-7:30pm. On Thursday’s in August we do our weekly SHOW-OFFS at 7:15pm. The show-off is where all the football players, parents, and family come to watch the progress of the cheerleaders each week.

*When school starts, practices go down to 2 days a week for flag and C. B and A will practice 3 times a weeks. These days are picked by the coaches depending on their schedules.


Cheer allows for 5 excused absences total for the season. This includes practices and/or games. This does not mean all your absences are from games. August is a VERY critical month where skill are being evaluated and positions are determined.  When it comes to attendance Cheerleading has NO bench like other sports. Each team is broken into small stunt groups that will do challenging activities throughout the season. These small groups must have continuity to safely practice. If any one participant is missing, 4 others are impacted for a significant part of the practice. Excused absences are medical, school function, and family emergency. Vacation, other sports, parties, sleepovers, ect. are NOT excused absences. We are asking for you to please think about this before taking time off.

*Each team tries to go to between 3-5 competitions. Flag will do 2 unless the coach feels they can handle another one. Competitions are not optional, THEY ARE MANDATORY! Competitions are on Saturday’s starting around the middle/end of September and they go to the end of October. We do not know times of competitions until the week before. As soon as we receive the information, we send it to coaches.

*Games are on Sunday’s. Every cheerleader is expected to be there. Some games are home and some are away at other towns. We do not receive the game schedule until September. Flag cheerleaders do not travel. Flag games start at 9am with an arrival time is 8:30am. C game starts at 10:30am with an arrival time of 10am. B is 12:30pm with an arrival time of 12pm. A is at 2:30pm with an arrival time of 2pm.

*Every family is REQUIRED to volunteer TWO times in the season. Jobs could include but are not limited to: practice mat set up/tear down & game day responsibilities. Team mom's will assign spots and if you are unable to volunteer for that week, you are responsible for finding another person to take your volunteer assignment.If you do not volunteer, you will be charged $25 per assignment. 

What needs to be purchased for the season:

*Royal Blue Body Liner

*Royal Blue Sparkly Spandex Shorts

*White Tank Top

*White No Show Socks

*White Tie Sneakers


*Red Practice Shorts (Any red shorts will do)

*All these items can be purchased (expect the bow) at Empire Cheer in Henrietta. Empire Cheer Does come to our uniform handout that we have in July so you do not need to make the trip if you are at uniform handout.*
