Paperwork drop off/Uniform fitting information:

ALL information regarding paperwork (both electronic and paper), as well as uniform fittings will be communicated to families in the near future.

  • You and your cheerleader MUST attend the time frame that is communicated for form dropoff AND uniform fittings to ensure that all documentation is received, and appropriate measurements can be taken so that a uniform can be sent home with your cheerleader (unless a specific size needs to be ordered).  Uniform Distribution will be prior to camp – information to follow. A check will be collected for $250.00 payable to MSA Cheerleading and post-dated December 1, 2024. Checks will not be cashed if uniforms are returned timely, cleaned, and in good condition.  
  • Uniforms are ONLY to be worn for games and competition. If it is made aware that you are disrespecting the uniform and wearing it outside the designated spaces your uniform check will be cashed to cover potential costs of damages. 

spring clinics:

We will be holding spring clinics for all registered MSA cheerleaders during the following dates:

April 29th through May 24th.  Each of our teams will have a specific day of the week (Monday-Friday) that they will attend for their clinics.  Your cheerleader's day and time will be communicated to you ahead of time.  ALL clinics will take place at the Mahopac Falls School gym and will be free of charge.  Clinics are NOT mandatory, but highly recommended as it will be a time for the cheerleaders to meet and spend time with their coaches, as well as fellow cheerleaders.  Stay tuned for a separate email with clinic registration information.  We look forward to working with our incoming cheerleaders!

Choreography Camp:

**Will be mandatory for grades 1-8**

Dates for 2024 :

August 5th - 8th Grades 4-8 from 9:30-1:00pm

August 12th - 15th Grades 1/2 from 9:00-12:30pm and grade 3 from 10:30-2:00pm

Camp fee is included in registration this season.  Camp is held at Extreme Force Allstars Gym, 121 Stillwater Road, Mahopac, NY.

Choreography camp is where the team learns their routine for the competition season, inclusive of placement.


Practices are closed practices, with the exception of the last 15 minutes. Please drop off and pick up your child on time. Please remember your coaches are volunteers with family and work commitments as well.

Practices are 2 times a week for all teams with the exception of Kindergarten, which is 1 - 2 times a week.


Tumbling will not be mandatory for the 2024 season, but is strongly recommended.  In an effort to keep the cheerleaders progressing with their tumbling skills, we recommend joining a class that fits your child's ability and schedule.  We will provide a schedule of class options that are available.


All games are on Sunday and we will provide the times when we receive the schedule.

We will be cheering for the home games on the Mahopac High School turf field. We will meet on the grassy area behind the stands and walk in together as a team. Full uniforms are to be worn to all games, this includes lollipops/briefs, socks, bow, and cheer sneakers. No jewelry is to be worn and it is not your coaches’ responsibility to hold on to any jewelry. As the weather gets cooler cheerleaders are allowed to wear their warm-up suits or leggings.


All competitive teams (grades 3-8) will participate in 4 to 5 competitions during the season.  Our expo teams (Kindergarten and grades 1/2) will perform their routine at Taconic Cheerfest (team 1/2), Yorktown Competition (team 1/2), and our home Mahopac Competition (teams 1/2 and Kindergarten)

Exact meeting and competition times for ALL teams will be distributed as soon as we have all the information.  Times can change, so it is important to keep the entire day available for each competition. 

*If there are competitions you will not be able to attend, we will have to amend the routine, so commitment to the competition routine is required.  If there is a scheduling conflict, please notify your coach/team parent, or board member ASAP.     

*Cheerleaders are to arrive at the designated time provided by coaches for competition, any tardiness may result in that cheerleader not being able to compete. Practice and safety are key and if a portion was changed due to tardiness it will not be adjusted again to accommodate the tardy cheerleader. 


Attendance is crucial from a safety aspect, and especially for competitions.  Please note that if there is excessive tardiness from any cheerleader, the coaches will have the discretion to change the routine to ensure safety of the girls and team.  If there are excessive absences, the coaches have the discretion to remove any cheerleader from the routine and allow them to cheer at football games.  All of these items have been discussed at the MSA Cheer Board level as safety is our number one priority.

This season we will be utilizing Stack Team for attendance and communications.

**Safety is always our main concern when making any and all decisions**

Team parents:

All questions, comments, and concerns should be directed to your Team Parents during Cheerleading events, including games, competitions, and practices. Your coaches’ main priority while working with the team is to ensure safety during any and all instruction.
