2016 Bux-Mont Pee Wee Level 1 Small Division Champions
New and existing Hawks Cheerleaders recently attended a 3-Day UCA Cheer Camp at Archbishop Wood High School. The girls took home several Top Performance Ribbons, the 2nd Place Trophy for overall Camp Performance, the Spirit Stick Award and the Top Banana Award. The Top Banana is the most coveted award to win at summer camp, given to the squad who displays leadership and an overwhelming amount of spirit every day. Congratulations to our girls and a BIG Thank You to Pee Wee Head Coach Amber & Assistant Coach Yasmeen for leading the group.
Q & A
When can I register for cheerleading?
Online registration starts February 1st. In addition to the online registration several in-house registrations are held from February through June. Check the Horsham Hawks' website for dates.
Registration with payment must be turned in prior to June 30th for your child to be guaranteed a spot on the cheer squad. Registration is accepted up until August 1, with limited spaces available.
Why do we have to register so early?
Bux-Mont and Pop Warner require that each association start creating preliminary rosters at the May League Meeting. We need to determine how many cheer squads and what ages/levels they will be for Pop Warner by July 1. This means that all of the paperwork has to be collected and validated.
How long is the cheerleading season?
Cheerleading practice starts on, or around August 1st and continue until mid November, unless the team qualifies for the Championships in December.
When are practices?
Per Pop-Warner rules, the girls are not allowed to do any jumps, stunts or tumbling until they complete 20 hours of "conditioning." In order to fulfill the conditioning requirements, the girls will practice four days a week for the first two weeks of August. After the conditioning requirements are fulfilled, the practices go to two/three days a week as determined by the coach.
Where are practices held?
From August until mid-September, practices are held outside at the Horsham Hawks' practice fields. During mid-September, practice will move inside to one of the elementary schools. Locations TBD.
When are games?
We do not get our season schedule from the Bux-Mont League until mid August. While the majority of our games are on Saturdays, there might be Friday night and/or Sunday games. Away games are played throughout Bux-Mont.
