Welcome to Fairport Raiders Teen Coaching!

Thank you for your interest in joining the Fairport Raiders coaching staff. Teen Coaches play a vital role in the success of our squads, and this position provides you with the opportunity to share your cheerleading experiences and knowledge with various age groups while giving you the chance to learn new skills as a mentor and instructor. Here is some general information about what is involved and expected from our teen coaches. Requirements In order to apply for a teen coaching position with Fairport Raiders, the prospective Teen
Coach must:
• Be entering at least eighth grade for the current cheerleading season
• Have had at least one year of cheerleading experience at the youth league level
• Be in good academic standing from the prior school year
• Maintain good academic standing during the current cheerleading season
• Have a strong desire to instruct and mentor younger children

Assignment of Position

Your progression as a Teen Coach will be similar to your progression as a youth cheerleader. As a first year Teen Coach you will be assigned to the Flag Cheerleading Squad so that you will be able to assist the Flag Squad’s Head Coach in instructing the basic skills required for cheerleading. Annually teen coaches progress through each age group, so that in your junior or senior year of high school you will have the opportunity to coach at the A Squad level. Occasionally exceptions may be made to this progression, but it is important to both your growth as a coach, the growth of the cheerleaders on your squad, and to our organization that you have coaching experience at all age levels.

Your Role on Your Squad

Once you are assigned to a cheerleading squad, the primary person you will communicate with is your Head Coach. Your Head Coach will be an adult who has ultimate responsibility for the cheerleading squad. Your Head Coach will determine what the goals are for the season, what actions or duties will be required of you, what part or parts of the routine you will be creating, and any other responsibilities that you will have. It will be up to you to insure that you are working towards your Head Coach’s goals in support of the squad. While you will be reporting directly to the head coach: occasionally you will also be provided instructions by board members and assistant coaches. You are expected to follow instructions from all members of leadership. Insubordination is not tolerated and can result in removal from the team. 

Expectation of Commitment

Applying for a Teen Coach position comes with the understanding that you are committing yourself and your personal time to participate as a member of the Raiders coaching staff. Accepting a position as a Teen Coach means understanding that your attendance at practices, football games, and other Packer’s events is required. Although it will be up to your Head Coach to ultimately determine the appropriate level of participation he or she will require, you should plan on a minimum of:

• Four hours of attendance at practices each week during August
• Two hours of attendance at practices each week during the school year
• A, B, and C Levels: Two home and one away football games
• Flag Level: Two Flag football games
• Any other event or meeting that is required by your Head Coach

Community Service Related Opportunities

Your volunteer involvement with the Fairport Raiders as a Teen Coach may qualify for community service obligations or service related projects you may have with your school, church, or other organization. Additionally Fairport Raiders offers scholarship awards for college. These are available by application in your senior year of high school.
