The purpose of the Indian Hill Recreation Commission is to provide recreational opportunities and athletic programs for residents of the Village of Indian Hill and the students of the Indian Hill School District.
The purpose of the IH Rec Cheerleading Program is to offer girls and boys another option for a fall sport. Each squad cheers for the IH Rec Football team of the same grade level. Instruction is focused on proper cheerleading technique, cheers, chants, jumps, dance, basic gymnastics, and spirited fun!!!!! Obligations and costs are listed below:
*Stop by either of the mandatory, in-person registration sessions on Sunday, May 2nd or Saturday, May 9th any time between 9:00 - 12:00. Registration is in the IH Rec Office. Paperwork, uniform fittings, and fee payments can be taken care of in about 15 minutes. Please do not forget to bring a copy of the child's birth certificate, a recent photograph, and your checkbook.
*Costs for the season:
1. Recreation Fee: $30
2. Uniform (top and skirt): $70 (for new participants or ones needing replacements)
3. Accessory Pack (turtleneck, briefs, socks, and poms): $20
4. Braves Hair Bow: $10
5. Monogrammed Cheer Bag: $20 (optional but popular!)
6. Brave Summer Cheerleading Camp Aug. 3rd - 8th from 1:00 - 4:00 in the IH Middle
School gym: $100 (optional but HIGHLY recommended!!!) Camp registration
can be taken care of during regular cheerleading registration.
*Parent Coaches needed!!!! The new league that our program joined requires a separate coach for each grade level. No experience necessary! Once all volunteers are in place, there will be a "coach's meeting" in late May or early June to map out the season...another new league requirement. If in fact there is a grade level that doesn't have a coach volunteer, there will not be a cheerleading squad for that age group. Please don't let that happen!!!!!
*March in the Indian Hill 4th of July parade with the Middle School and High School cheerleaders if in town. A festival at Stephan Field follows. More details to come!
*Attend mandatory practices twice a week beginning Monday, Aug. 10th. (Only 2 weeks before the first games!) Practice is from 5:00 - 6:00 at Stephan Field. 1st and 2nd graders practice on Mondays and Wednesdays. 3rd, 4th 5th, and 6th graders practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
*Attend all scheduled football games (which are now all on Saturdays) as well as end-of-season playoff games. A copy of the 2015 season's schedule will be available at registration.
*Mandatory participation in the S.O.Y.F.A.I. Cheerleading Expo on Sunday, Sept. 20th. It is an all day affair in which every squad from every team performs a cheerleading routine for everyone else. Parents will be solicited for volunteer positions.
