Welcome to Bartram Trails Athletic Association BEARS Cheer Program Page!

As a Bartram Bear, we emphasize the importance of accountability, family, preparation, respect and team work.


What it takes to be a part of “The GROWL”:
1. Enthusiastic and have a willingness to listen/learn
2. Be accountable and respectful to your coaching staff and squad
3. Participate in all practices and events
4. Family participation: it takes all of us to run a volunteer organization. Our Bear family not only plays together we work together.
**Examples of these duties consist of but are not limited to: Fundraising, Gate, Concessions and Snack Assignments.**

Our 2020 Inaugural Season was very successful!
-12u Growl Cheer Squad took 2nd place at our local conference,  NFYCC Competition. Our tiny team showcased and did us proud!!
-10u BEARS Football team won the NFYFC Bronze Championship

What to expect:

We will have Bear Football and Cheer Camp and a specialized camp in late Spring/Early Summer dates TBD

Season begins the beginning of August and regular season will end mid-end November. 
ALL Cheerleaders will participate sideline for ALL home and away games and our end of the year local conference competition

Pending participation and coaching commitment: We will be offering extended season this year which will be a separate registration. The time frame for extended season: registration would open in September, competition squads would continue past November local and continue up until May.
More information to come...

- Prior to the season coaches are CPR and First Aid Trained, Background Screened (by a secured 3rd party provider), and trained to coach.
- All coaches are Interviewed and will exhibit and uphold the “Qualities and Standards” we expect as a BEAR.

Practices: Each participant must complete a full 10 hours of conditioning before stunting, tumbling, jumps of any kind can begin. This allows time for the participant to prepare for the hot temperatures and outdoor activity. Please expect the first 2 weeks of practice to be 2 hours in length and Mon-Friday, then taper to 2-3 days per week totaling 4-6 hours per week. Practices will be at coaches/director's discretion and based on skill level and squad needs. 

PLEASE (this is the accountability part) keep in mind all competition practices are to prepare the squads for their routines, all practices are mandatory, missing participants can create gaps in stunting and pose a safety issue if unable to practice as a full squad. Excessive absences can result in removal from routine with no refunds issued.

-Fundraising: We will be having fundraisers throughout the season to assist with competition needs: Music, Gym Time and misc. items for the program.
This is an expectation for each squad and participant. 

Our League: We are part of a premier league, North Florida Youth Cheer Conference (NFYCC) that follows Varsity rules and guidelines. 

Registration: covers conference fees and insurance, county field fees, competition fees and uniform rental. Uniforms will be sized, ordered (if needed) and issued to include: Pom Poms, Tank, Skirt, Crop top shell (competition), boy shorts/briefs, T-shirt and bows ( Briefs, T shirt and bows are yours to keep, remainder of the items will be returned at end of season). **White cheer specific shoes will need to be purchased by parents. Invest in a magic eraser to keep them clean**

Age Matrix: Our League Age applies to your child's age by AUG 31

TINY CHEER 6U (5-6 yrs); MINI CHEER 8U (7-8 yrs); YOUTH CHEER 10U (9-10 yrs); JUNIOR CHEER 12U (11-12) and 14U (13-14)
