Cheerleading Information

Welcome to MAA Cheer!  I wanted to introduce myself as the MAA Cheerleading Director to our new families and welcome you to MAA Cheer!  If you are returning we are so glad to have you and your family back this season!
My name is Courtney King, a MAA cheer alumni, I am married with 4 children, two boys and twin girls that also love being MAA cheerleaders *\o/*!  I am so excited to build upon all the hard work past directors have put into this organization. 
I’m looking forward to our upcoming season and to meet each and every one of the girls.  My goals for this year are to welcome back many familiar faces and introduce new faces to the wonderful sport of cheerleading.  I want to teach and build upon the fundamentals of the sport in a safe environment, all while having fun and making memories and new friends. 
 

Thank you all for supporting our wonderful program.  This year we have several fun things in the works!

One Team, One Dream!

GO Midlo!*\o/*

Held in the JB Watkins Cafeteria, this is a chance to try on and be fitted for the MAA Cheer uniform, and be sized for all items needed for the year (practice shirt, shorts, warmup jacket).

We will also be offering spirit wear and decals to purchase at the beginning of the season.

Coaches:

Coaches are selected by the Cheerleading Director. All coaches undergo background checks and safety training prior to starting the season.


Season: 

Pre-season practice for all squads begins in late July learning cheers and stunting technique. The season (sideline and competition) extends through the end of October/beginning of November.  All squads will cheer on the sidelines of their respective team’s football game and perform at halftime.  Athletes will have the opportunity to compete in several cheer competitions in addition to cheering at football games and performing at halftime. It is optional to participate in competition and athletes must commit to mandatory practice attendances. Athletes may choose to opt out of competition. All information will be presented at the parent meeting at the beginning of the season.

Practice: 

Each squad will have practice time around the track behind Midlothian Middle School from 6-8 pm two weeknights a week  through the end of September outdoors. Flag typically ends around 7:30 once school starts. Starting in October we move to closed practices indoors to the Midlothian Middle School gym. Additional practice times may be required for competition squads. 
Weeknight practices will be TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY for 2019 season.


Fundraising: 

Cheerleaders may be asked to participate in fundraising events to support costs for gym time and competition fees.


Post Season Play: 

Both conference winners and the six (6) teams with the next best records enter the playoffs in each division, Northern and Southern. The playoffs are single elimination and culminate with the “Superbowl” on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. There is no post season play in the Flag league. Cheerleading squads normally continue cheering as long as their associated team continues in the playoffs.

Our 2018 Juniors were in the playoffs and we were so excited to be on the sidelines cheering for our amazing Junior football players! 

Our 2018 Minors season went until the last game before the Super Bowl in the playoffs.  Our MAA Minor Football Team were some incredible players with extreme heart.  We loved cheering for them every weekend. CQL took notice of MAA supporting our players and asked our Minor squad to cheer for the All Star game.  It was an amazing honor and we had a blast even in the cold!


Pictures: 

Team and individual pictures will be taken about mid-season and may be purchased for an additional charge. These are usually done the first week of school.

Games: 

Games begin the weekend after Labor Day (the Saturday after school begins). Games are played on Saturday mornings or afternoons. The Chesterfield Quarterback League sets the schedule and MAA has no control over when it is published, or any changes due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Occasionally, a Wednesday night game will be played, usually as a weather make up. On Saturday mornings, Flag begin at 9:00 AM followed by Minors at 10:00 AM, Juniors at 11:00 AM and Seniors at 12:00 noon. However, the actual starting times depend on the ending time of the previous game. For Saturday evening games, Flag plays at 5:00 PM followed by Minors, Juniors and Seniors in order.
