Cheerleader Practice Updates

Our first cheerleading practice will be held on Thursday, June 28 at 10:15am behind TRE.  All further practices will be announced at this time. This practice is for all squads: MODS/JRS/SRS to begin learning routines for a performance at BHS Clinic and for game halftimes.

Please bring a check made out to Bedford Cheerleaders for $25 to pay for the BHS Cheer Clinic, which will be held on August 4th from 9:00am until approximately 4:00pm.

Parents – please bring your cheerleader’s shorts and tank top sizes so we can get Clinic/practicewear ordered ASAP. Be sure to bring a water bottle to practice as it will be hot and you will need it.

There will be no make-up days for missed content, you must catch up with another cheerleader if missing practices in June/July. Even if you are not attending the Clinic, please try to make practices to learn content.

Mandatory practices will start on August 13th at 5:15pm behind TRE. It’s going to be a great season!

Day at the Spa Raffle

If you haven’t purchased a raffle ticket from a Hornets cheerleader, make sure you do it this week! They are selling raffle tickets for a day at the spa for two. The tickets are $10 each and the winner will be drawn during the senior home game this Sunday.

Reminder to all cheerleading parents – Spa Raffle ticket money is due to one of the board members by Friday. The drawing is this Sunday at our last home game. All proceeds benefit the cheerleaders, which is great for our future squads. Money due per girl should total $50. Thanks so much!!

Despite the rain, Saturday’s Hornets picnic in Vienna Park was a good time! Players, cheerleaders and their families enjoyed pizza, watermelon, drinks and great company. Congratulations to cheerleader Phoebe Potter – winner of the watermelon eating contest. Thank you for your donations of pop and water for the concession stand.

Here are a few pictures from the picnic:
