NYSPHSAA Cheerleading Finals

Our first ever STATES competition is this weekend, Saturday March 7, 2015 at Rochester Institute of Technology. The competition scheduled to begin at 11:00am. The event will be held inside the Gordon Field House.

Admission is $8.00/adult. Parking is free. Doors will open to spectators at 10am. There will only be one session for 47 teams so we recommend getting a good seat early!

Cheerleaders MUST ride the bus to competition with the team. We will meet at the Freeman side of the high school at 9:15am. The girls should arrive wearing full uniform: bodysuit, shell, spankies, warm up jacket, black warm up pants, competition bow, and full hair and makeup. Skirts and cleaned competition shoes should be kept in their bags; they may wear Uggs or other boots until we arrive at RIT.

Varsity will warm up at 12:32 and perform at 1:12 
Awards 3:15

Girls may ride home with THEIR parents or guardian only and must give us a note when the get on the bus on the morning. No notes can be excepted at RIT because we need to give the bus driver a head count before we leave the high school. We anticipate arriving back to Orchard Park around 5:30

Lets bring home our first STATE TITLE!! 
See you Saturday!
