Cheer is organized by grade level and runs from mid-August until the beginning of November. 

 

Each squad as two adult coaches who are Rutgers certified.

Practices 

Mandatory practices are every Thursday from 4:30-6, from September 6 - November 8 at Mendham’s Boro Park. (Grade 1 -2 squads may end earlier than 6)

- Each squad has an additional practice each week in September, which is encouraged but not mandatory. The day is determined by the squad coaches. 

 

Games

- Cheerleaders cheer at Twin Boro Bears football games, which take place on Friday nights or weekends in the fall. 

- Home games are played in Mendham or Chester; away games are played in nearby towns. 

- Days and times of games are released at the end of August. Once football schedule is released, game times are subject to change. TB Cheer has no control over the schedule or any changes in time. 

- Games are mandatory. Cheerleaders are to arrive 1 hour before game for practice or specified by coach. 

 

- Flag Games – Grades 1 & 2 Cheerleaders will cheer for Flag Football. Flag Football typically has a less competitive, intermural structure to their games. These games will likely be in the same location and time each week. Subject to change. 

 

Cheer Gear & Spirit Wear Sale

- Mandatory cheer gear includes sneakers, boycut briefs, fleece, cheer bag, gloves, ear warmers, warmup pants, midriff shirt and pom poms. 

- Many items can be used year after year. Older cheerleaders pass down their gently used cheer gear (available at the sale). 

- Each new cheerleader receives a game bow, cheer socks and camp t-shirt. 

- Returning cheerleaders receive cheer socks and camp t-shirt. 

- Uniforms (skirt, shirt, jacket) are borrowed from the TB Cheer organization (along with a $150 refundable deposit), distributed at camp and returned at the end of season.

 

Attendance Policy

- Cheerleading is a team sport that requires consistent participation from each and every member; therefore, Thursday practices and games are mandatory.  If one member is missing, the team will not be able to practice and/or perform their choreographed routine and stunts safely and effectively. 

- Our attendance policy is that all Cheerleaders will be allowed no more than 3 absences from practices and games combined (excluding religious holidays) during the “regular” season.  This policy will be enforced. For more details, please read the "2018 TB Cheer Handbook" found in the Cheerleading Docs section of this website.
