What is Recreational Cheerleading – This is a course where athletes train 1 day a week in a 1-hour session. Novice team athletes learn a choreographed routine that helps them develop teamwork, leadership, and safety skills that aid them throughout life. We have a wide range of ages that can participate and that is normal in our sport. We offer two levels of rec this winter.
Cheer & Tumble Classes- learn the foundations of tumbling and cheer in a combined curriculum. These classes are drop-in and there is no performance or competition. To register for these classes, please use our class system.
Novice Teams are Rec teams that learn a routine and perform at a local event at the end of the session. The performance for our winter session is April 1 in Newmarket. We offer 3 teams that are registered as a session, not on a drop-in basis.
What is required – There are no pre-requisites, all experiences are welcome. Most people who participate in recreational cheer have little to no experience in cheerleading. There are no mandatory attendance policies, no competition fees, no apparel fees, and no other fees besides the one-time program course fee.
What to wear to practice – Please wear your official Limelight T-shirt to practice. Also, please wear any comfortable shorts, leggings, or sweatpants. Shoes are required as well and should not be outdoor shoes. We must ensure that our shoes are clean, therefore we do not allow outdoor shoes. Please use any comfortable running shoes with a smooth bottom. Rough edges on shoes can be painful when stunting on one another.
