Dicks Sporting Goods will provide a 20% discount for our league to use on an assigned date. We will send that information to everyone as soon as we have it.


Q:My child is on the waitlist...what now?

A: Players/cheerleaders who are put on the waitlist will have the opportunity to take the spot of another player/cheerleader should someone decide to drop out. This happens frequently due to moves, conflicts in schedules, personal reasons, etc.


Q: I am interested in being a Coach, Assistant Coach, or Team Mom. What do I need to do?

A: EYSA is run solely by volunteers. We appreciate and encourage any help that is offered. If you are interested in being involved please indicate your interest on your registration form. If you have submitted registration and did not have the opportunity to indicate interest in helping the league please email us at [email protected] All volunteers must agree to the EYSA Code of Conduct and be able to pass a criminal background check.


Q: What if my child will be playing another sport at the same time?

A: EYSA tries to be as flexible as possible. Please include the days in which your child practices for their other sport in the "Special Request" section on the registration form. We will attempt to place your child accordingly, however that is not always guaranteed.


Q: We cannot make schedules work, are moving, or have to cancel registration due to some other matter beyond our control. What is your refund policy?

A: EYSA is a family-oriented organization and we understand life happens. Please see our refund policy below:

Prior to uniforms being ordered $25 cancellation fee.

If uniform has been ordered refund will be minus the cost of uniforms.

Once practice has started refunds will not be issued unless there are extenuating circumstances.*

*Extenuating circumstances will be reviewed by the board prior to refunds being issued.


Q: We did not get placed on the team we would like and would like to cancel our registration.

A: If you feel this is a matter which can be resolved with a 3rd party you are always welcome to contact any member of the Board and we will direct you to the correct person to attempt to reach an amicable resolution. If you do not wish or we are unable to reach a resolution the same refund policy will apply.


Q: I am having difficulties with registration... whom can I contact for assistance?

A: Please contact us via email at [email protected] or via messenger on our Facebook Page.

CHEER FAQ's

Q: What is the age/grade for cheer participants?

Q: When does Cheer Registration open & close?

A: Registration opens 2/1/2021 & closes 4/1/2021. Due to the high interest in our cheer program, I would recommend registering promptly to avoid being put on a wait list. 

**No registrants will be accepted after April 1st and/or once EYSA cheer max number has been met, whichever comes first. There are absolutely NO EXCEPTIONS due to the amount of time the uniform manufacturers take to make the uniforms.

 

Q: What is the $275 cheer registration fee used for?

A: The registration fee pays for a participant’s uniform:  Shell, skirt, briefs, bow, megaphone, poms, pink-out bow, pink-out poms, and practice t-shirt. Also, it helps cover season expenses such as facility fees to use fields for games, supplemental insurance, referees, equipment, special events for our association, etc.

 

Q: When will participants receive their uniforms?

A: Uniforms will be issued in late-August by your cheerleader’s coach.

 

Q: Will there be other cheer expenses?

A: Yes, if you choose to purchase “optional” items from Varsity; cheer backpack/bag, body liner, rain coat, jacket, etc.

Also, additional expenses include but not limited to; white cheer shoes, socks, megaphone decals, additional pink-out items, custom team items, Homecoming, etc.  Your Coach/Team Parent might organize a team fundraiser to help with additional expenses, but not required.  These items are decided upon as a team after the season begins.

** Optional items are NOT required and at the parent’s discretion.

 

Q: Is the uniform fitting mandatory? And when?

A: YES, uniform fittings are mandatory for all cheerleaders and there are no make-up dates.  Cheer fittings take place in mid-late April or early-May. 

2021:  1) Virtual Fittings = OPEN Sat, April 10   |   2) Mandatory Zoom Call = Sat, April 17 (time TBD)

 

Q: How are cheer teams formed?

A: Typically, by grade/age. Participants may cheer up or down per the guidelines below and will be placed on teams in the exact order of the guidelines.  The guidelines may also supersede grade/age as deemed necessary by the Cheer Director.

 

1)     Head and/or Asst. Coach children/family (Cheer & Football).

2)     Football sibling(s) and/or family.

3)     Returning participant (season immediately previous) to the same coach, providing space is available.

a.     Returning participants have the option to move to another team within the League at registration only, provided the age/grade requirements are met & requested team has availability.

4)     Special Requests for team placement.  Based on "team availability" and on a "first-come, first-served" basis only.  Special requests are not guaranteed.

a.     Special request participants should provide a first and second choice for team placement.  Team selections must have open availability.

 

Q: When will we know what team we are on, and how?

A: Cheer team formations will start once football registration closes on June 1st.  After which time, cheer teams will be finalized, and your cheerleader’s Coach will welcome you to the team and provide pertinent information/dates.

 

Q: When does Practice start for Cheer, and what days?

A: We begin practices either the last week of July/first week of August, twice a week, Monday through Friday.

Practice days/times are at the coach’s discretion.  Cheer coaches try and accommodate a practice schedule that runs concurrent with football practices for siblings, but there is no guarantee.

 

Q: Where are practices and games held?

A: Practices are held at approved EYSA and NISD facilities only; typically, Eaton High School. 

A: Games are held at Eaton High School for HOME games; and since we are a traveling league, AWAY games will take us to towns within the “MYFA Football Association”.  See www.bvfootball.org for current list of towns.

 

Q: When does the season begin and end?

A: The first game is normally the first Saturday of September, with at least 8 regular season games through October, and then post-season with playoffs and potentially leading up to the Superbowl in mid-November.

 

Q: When will I receive a game schedule?

A: Game schedules will be finalized & released in late August.  Game schedules and locations are subject to change; coaches will communicate changes accordingly.

 

Q: Is there a summer cheer camp?

A: Yes, hosted by the Eaton High School Cheerleaders & Booster in mid-August. Detailed information will be provided by your coach accordingly.  No additional Cost will be charged. EYSA pays for this via fundraising. 

 

Q: Can I request a coach even if their team is not in my participant’s age division?

A: Yes, you can request a Coach at registration and/or by sending an email to [email protected] immediately after you have registered. Though requests are not guaranteed, we will try our best to make that happen if the team is not already full, and the age is within reason of the team you are asking to join.  (see “How are cheer teams formed?” above)

 

Q: What will my participant be doing and gain from this organization?

A: Not only will your participant learn the basics of cheerleading, stunting, jumps, a choreographed dance for half-time, tumbling with previous experience & competition, they will make lifelong friends!

Our focus is helping cheerleaders build sportsmanship, self-confidence, and character. EYSA coaches strive to promote teamwork and responsibility while ensuring your cheerleader has lots of FUN too!

 

Q: What other events can my cheerleader look forward to during the season?

A: A typical season is comprised of, but not limited to or guaranteed: Cheer Camp, Homecoming Parade with EHS, CheerFest, and other fun events organized and planned by your cheerleader’s coach.

 

Q: How do I become a Cheer Head/Assistant Coach?

A: At registration, submit your request in the "Special Request" section, and/or by sending an email to [email protected] immediately after you have registered.  The Cheer Director will send you an application via email to fill out – you must provide two grade level requests.  Once football registration closes in June, and if there is a need, we will schedule cheer head coach interviews. 

NOTE: Grade level placement will depend on 1) how many football teams per grade level and 2) after returning cheer head coach (season immediately previous) requests have been honored. **

 

** Returning Cheer Head Coaches:

A returning head coach is not guaranteed to move up with the same Football team from the previous season, unless both cheer & football coaches are family.  The Cheer Director will determine the placement of Coaches (and their returning teams) based on league registration and need.  Returning head coaches must provide two grade level requests each new season.  A returning Head Coach is defined as the season immediately previous; all other previous seasons head coaches will follow the new head coach interview process.


We thank each and every one of you for choosing us to be the sports program for your child. We are well aware there are many other organizations you could choose from. We are honored for you to have chosen EYSA. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out at any time and we would be happy to assist in any way possible.
