Christian Academy is blessed to be able to offer English Station and Southwest students a fall intramural cheer program for kindergarten through 5th grade girls. This offering is only possible with a high level of participation from students as well as a high level of parent volunteers. There are many benefits to being involved in athletics, including good health, social interaction, self-confidence, self-discipline and a sense of personal accomplishment. Our goal is to always be Christ-honoring in all that we do, including sports.
This intramural cheer opportunity is being sent separately from the other fall intramural sports due to the fact that cheer practice will begin in July and uniforms need to be ordered in June. CAL will offer other fall intramural sports including volleyball, cross country and tennis. Please note, students can only participate in one intramural sport per season.
Intramural cheer will cheer for our CAL youth football teams as part of the Louisville Youth Football League. Cheerleaders will have the opportunity to cheer at eight regular season games and, based on the football team’s record, the possibility of playoffs and championship games. The first game of the season is August 12, and the last will be mid-October. Cheer practice will officially begin around July 24. Teams may practice one to two days a week this summer and during the season. More detailed practice information will be sent soon.
The girls will be fitted for uniforms the week of June 12. The intramural cheer fee will be $160. This includes a seven piece uniform (bow, cheer top, skirt, liner [long sleeve under shirt], bloomers and poms) that you get to keep. The cheer teams will also have the opportunity to purchase items such as cheer backpacks, shirts, shorts and shoes via an online cheer team store. These items are optional.
Intramural cheer season will officially end at the end of the youth football season. However, the cheer teams may choose to participate in the LYFL post season cheer showcase if desired. This would be considered optional and the cost to participate is not included in the intramural cheer fee. Intramural sports do not fundraise so additional expenses will need to be covered by the participants.
