NORTHCROSS INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL CHEERLEADING TEAM
Registrations are now open for those students wanting to be part of the NX Cheerleading Team. Before committing to this team there is some very important information you need to know.
To be part of this team requires a full two terms commitment (Term’s 2 & 3 - it finishes with the final Competition in late September). All students who are willing to commit will be included in this team, regardless of experience or ability.
The team will begin with trainings in the school gym (Friday mornings 7am- 8.30am). After 5 weeks of training, the team will then be split into two - Level 1 and Level 2. Our Coach Sheri (from All Stars Cheerleading) will decide which students are in which team based on what she has seen in the training sessions. These two teams will then compete at these different levels for the duration of the year - see below for what is involved for both teams:
Level 1 - After the first 5 weeks, trainings will continue on Friday mornings at 7am- 8.30am in our NX School Gym; the L1 team will compete in the Schools Spectacular on August 25th.
Level 2 - This will be the AIMS team; trainings for this team will take place on Saturday afternoons from 4pm - 5.30pm at the Silverdale All Stars Gym. This team will compete in the following competitions: Schools Spectacular at North Shore Events Centre (25th August), AIMS in Tauranga (10th September) and Spring Carnival at North Shore Events Centre (16th September).
Prior to competitions, there may be additional Sunday trainings in order to ensure the team is ready to compete in the upcoming competitions. These will be important for the whole team to be in attendance as it is difficult for a cheerleading team to practice with members missing.
Compulsory Choreography Session: Sunday 6th May 10am to 1pm - this is a very important date for all NX Cheerleaders as they will learn their routine.
All students involved in the Level 2 team must have the NX Force uniform. If your child is new to the team, then you will need to purchase one (cost $150) and we will then order it for you in Term 2.
All students involved in the Level 1 team will need to have black shorts and their PE top as their uniform.
Initial Costs: To be part of this either team, the cost will be $250 - this covers the cost of the coaching and the NX bow.
Additional Costs:Each competition costs $50.
NX Force Uniform costs $150 (only for Level 2 team)
AIMS expenses - this cost is yet to be confirmed
To register your child for Cheerleading, you will need to go to the NX Online Shop (you can find the link on the Northcross Website). A $50 deposit will be required with registration. This deposit is non-refundable. Once registration has closed, the balance of the Initial Fee ($200) will be loaded onto your child’s account and will be required to be paid (via the NX Online Shop) at your convenience during Term 2. Additional costs, such as competitions, will be directly loaded onto your child’s account and will need to be paid before the competition date. Those purchasing the NX Force uniform will also have this amount loaded onto your child’s account.
Registrations close on Tuesday 1 May - 3pm.
The team is coached by Sheridan Read from All Star Infinity Cheerleaders.
