3 Bonham Cheer/Mascot Introduction I am so excited that you are interested in becoming a Bonham Cheerleader or Mascot! It is an honor and a privilege to become a Bonham Cheerleader and Mascot. Cheerleader and Mascots are expected to maintain a high level of academic achievement and leadership. This year, as a squad(s), we will do so much more than just cheer. We will participate in community service projects, host pep rallies, fundraise, and attend team building/leadership events. Being a Cheerleader and Mascot has a cost factor involved. The cost may vary by squad. These costs are included in the Tryout Packet. Fundraising is available to help offset the cost. Cheerleaders and mascots will be required to participate in team fundraising events throughout the year. If you believe that you will make great Bulldog Cheerleader or Benny/Bailey candidate, please read through all the contents of this packet with your parent. It is very important to meet all the deadlines (Tryout Application Packet and Report Card), or you will be ineligible to tryout. Please see page four for dates and times.

14 Inherent Risk Form Inherent risks of cheerleading Cheerleading is reasonably safe as long as certain guidelines are followed, but there is the inherent risk of injury as in any athletic activity. Cheerleading is an anaerobic/aerobic activity which includes jumping, stunting, motions, and tumbling. All physicals must be on file in the high school office before you may participate in practices and games. Keep your coach informed of all injuries and/or chronic conditions. Although the probability of injury is minimized if you practice correctly, there is always the possibility of one occurring. Injuries that can occur in cheerleading include, but are not limited to, the following: blisters, muscle strains, ligament sprains, joint and muscle soreness, abrasions, contusions, stress fractures, spinal cord injuries involving paralysis, even death. However, if you take certain precautions, the possibility of such injuries will be largely decreased. Be sure to consistently abide by the following guidelines: NEVER stunt or tumble unless a coach's designee is present, Always practice in the presence of a qualified coach. Always warm up appropriately before cheering (practice and games) by jogging and stretching. Do not attempt a stunt that you do not know how to perform safely and that has not been approved by the coach. Always use attentive spotters when stunting. Always cheer in an area free from obstruction. Always use mats or a grassy area when stunting during practice. Do not stunt on uneven ground, wet surfaces, and concrete. Do not stunt in cold or rainy weather. Never talk, laugh, or mess around when performing a stunt. Report all injuries to the coach as soon as they occur. Follow all athletic trainer and doctor recommendations. Lift weights to increase strength and guard against injuries. Always wear shoes and clothing appropriate for cheerleading. Never wear jewelry of any kind or chew gum when cheering (practice and games). Always have your hair pulled back from your face and shoulders. Eat nutritious meals and get plenty of rest. Always ask for assistance or advice at any time. I have read the preceding warning. I thoroughly appreciate and understand the assumptions of risks inherent in cheerleading participation. I acknowledge that I am physically fit and am voluntarily participating in this activity. Candidate Signature Date Parent/Guardian Signature Date 14

As an athletic program, its first and foremost responsibility to the student is to support and not to compromise the student's academic career. 2. The program should aid in developing the student's participation into a responsible, mature and independent adult. Specifically, the program is a means of improving the student's mental and physical well-being. 3. Cheerleading is a privilege not a right. Cheerleading is an activity that will: a. Provide leadership training. b. Develop the ability to make decisions. c. Enhance the ability to respond to life's situations, (e.g. conflict, anger, frustration, win/loss, and react in a respectable manner). d. Contribute to social development, (e.g. one's development of self-confidence and interpersonal relationships). e. Maximize the opportunity for student growth, change, and maturity. 4. The primary purpose of the cheerleader is to be a member of the team. Its goal is to support the athletic teams and the school. Support is directed into three major areas. a. To lead the cheers; to raise the level of fan support for the athletic teams; to lead in positive vocal support for the team; to solicit that support from fans and to project that support to Temple I.S.D and its teams. b. To participate in the athletic activity known as cheerleading by performing gymnastics, partner stunts, motions, pyramids, dance movements; to perfect this athletic activity by keeping the crowds' attention/direction focused on the field/floor where the activity is taking place, and for entertainment and competitive purpose. c. To serve as public relations ambassadors of the athletic teams at THS, BMS, LMS and TMS to uphold, reflect and project the goals and ideals of THS, BMS, LMS and TMS to appear at THS, BMS, LMS and TMS activities, functions, programs, charitable, and public causes.
