**Please bring your completed application forms and signed medical release forms to the clinic on Day One of clinic!

Wednesday, March 28: Tryout Clinic Day 2 (for ALL grade levels) - 4:30-6:30pm in the SME Main Gym

Thursday, March 29: Tryouts (for ALL grade levels) - begins promptly at 4:30pm. 
*We recommend you arrive no later than 4:15pm to the SME Gym Lobby to receive your tryout number tag and to rehearse your tryout material with your group. Tryout groups will include approximately 3 candidates per group; each tryout group lasts approximately 5-10 minutes for the entire tryout. After your tryout group has finished, you are free to go!

Recommended tryout-wear: 
1. Black or grey shorts (no cheer logos, either for SME Cheer or for another competitive cheer program)
2. White t-shirt (again, no cheer logos - try to make this as plain as possible)

Week of Jan. 1 - Jan. 7, 2018

posted Jan 2, 2018, 12:15 PM by Mallory Gaunce

Updates for Spring Semester (also sent out via email): 
  1. Comp Squad Pep Assembly Performance: Comp Squad will be practicing next Tuesday/Wednesday (1/9 - 1/10) from 6a-7a to prepare for the pep assembly performance on Thursday, 1/11. The pep assembly will take place during seminar on 1/11, and we will likely be the first or one of the first couple of performances (for any parents who want to attend). **Cheerleaders: on the day of the pep assembly, since we no longer have the 20-minute warm-up session at the beginning of seminar before students are released to head to the gym, I will be calling you out approximately halfway through second hour to set out the mats and warm up at least one time prior to performing. 

  2. Comp Squad Rockhurst Game Performance: The comp squad will perform for a final time at halftime of the JV boy's basketball game vs. Rockhurst on Friday, 1/26. We will be rehearsing on Wednesday, 1/17, and Wednesday, 1/24, from 6a-7a, just to keep everything sharp before then. 
    **PARENTS: We will need several parents (comp or non-comp) to help roll out and roll up the mats as quickly as possible during this performance. Please sign up using this link if you will be available to help with the mats on 1/26. We'd need you for a short amount of time during the JV game. We will have a parent-practice prior some time in the next few weeks so you know what you're doing!

  3. McPherson Tournament (Varsity): All varsity cheerleaders will be attending the McPherson basketball tournament Jan. 19 & 20, with senior parents and Holly as chaperones. All details regarding the trip will be sent to you via email later this evening or later this week from Stephanie Krause, so keep an eye out for that email!

  4. Senior Night (varsity/seniors): SME Cheer senior night will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 6, during halftime of the boy's basketball game. Seniors will attend a special dinner (more details to come) while the underclassmen on Varsity cheer for the girl's varsity game. Then, the seniors will attend and join the rest of the squad to cheer at the boy's game. 

  5. Basketball Schedule (all squads): Although we do our best to keep you up to date on game changes using our cheer calendar on SMECheer.com, please feel free to sign up for email updates or text updates for your squad's games at sunflowerleague.org! I get all updates this way, and it is a HUGE help, as they send you a message as soon as a change is made. 

  6. Basketball season cheer clinic (all squads): Our basketball season clinic fundraiser AND performance will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 20. Students are not in school on Tuesday 2/20, so all cheerleaders will be expected to attend the clinic from 8a-12p, then attend the game performance (during girl's game at 5:30p) that night. More details to follow.

  7. Uniform check-in: Uniform check-in will be the week of March 19-23 (date TBD), as I will be out of town the week before spring break this year (which is when we usually turn in uniforms). Please make sure to have your uniforms cleaned and nicely folded (no hangers, please!). 

  8. End-of-the-year Cheer Banquet (all squads): The banquet will be held on Sunday, March 25th. More details to follow in separate email sometime later this month or in February. Please make sure to keep that date free for a fun end-of-year celebration!

  9. TRYOUTS (all squads - seniors will run tryouts): The Tryout Info meeting will be held on Monday, February 26, at 5:30p. Cheer tryout clinic will be held on Tuesday/Wednesday, March 27/28th, from 4:30-6:30p, as we will be hosting ALL squad tryouts at the same time (instead of a separate freshman tryout session). Tryouts for all three squads (freshmen, JV, and varsity) will be held on Thursday, March 29. The "You Made It" posting will be posted on Friday, March 30 at 12p (there is no school that day).

  10. SUMMER SCHEDULE (underclassmen): All summer practices and hopefully camps will be held in June 2018 for next year's program. We are still waiting on camp dates from NCA staff, but are planning to schedule them for June, as well, if we can. We would also like to schedule competition routine camp for June, but that is pending Triston's schedule - it will either be in June or in early August. You are free to plan whatever you need to for July/summer trips! If you have a conflict for June already, no worries; just please let us know.

SME Cheer Clinic 2017: Save the Date!

posted Jun 26, 2017, 12:18 PM by Mallory Gaunce   [ updated Sep 7, 2017, 11:03 AM ]

Save the date for our 2017 Lancer Cheer Clinic for all future Lancers, ages K-8! Download your registration form today (attached here or on the Documents page). 

This clinic will include a special TRYOUT clinic for 7th and 8th graders! We will cover the format of SME Cheer tryouts and will introduce at least one tryout chant or dance for participants to practice prior to incoming freshman tryouts next spring. Join us so we can help prepare you for tryouts!

CLINIC DATE: Friday, October 13, 2017, in the SME gym (9-11:30 am)
SIDELINE PERFORMANCE: Thursday, October 19, 2017 @ SM North (SME vs. SM West Varsity Football)**

**We are aware that this home game will be held on the same night as K-8 parent-teacher night conferences for the fall. Unfortunately, this is the only date for which we are able to offer a clinic date prior to the performance date (without conflicting with weekend activities). That said, the district has provided you with the option this year of scheduling your parent-teacher conferences in advance of this date (throughout that entire week); please check in with your student's teacher early to see if you can schedule your conference in advance!
