Cheerleading

GMS Cheer Need To Know August Edition:

We welcome our student athletes back as we prepare for tryouts for cheer for our 7th and 8th grade students. Tryouts will be held August 25 - August 28 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm each day.  Students will need to come to tryouts dressed for participation.  Student drop off location for cheer will be the lower football parking lot. Look for Coach Smit when dropping off. If we have inclement weather we will use the the car rider line for drop off under the covered area. Results for tryouts will be given out in Gettys car rider line from 6 -7pm on August 31. In order for a student to participate in tryouts they must have on file a current physical, dated after April 1st, and a COVID 19 consent form (the link for both forms are below). Each student will need to bring to practice:

  1. Water. Enough for a two hour workout
  2. A mask – Coaches and players will wear masks during participation if social distancing of 6ft cannot be maintained.
  3. Physical form and COVID 19 informed consent form

We will hold a Webex parent and student interest meeting for tryouts on Thursday, August 20 at 7:00 pm. If you are interested in trying out for cheer please plan to attend. The meeting will be held in Dr. Strickland’s Webex room: https://pickens.webex.com/meet/rickstrickland
