GHS 9th Grade vs. Central Gwinnett (Away)

Our first game of the season, is this Thursday, 9/1 @ Central Gwinnett High School.

Kick-off time is 6:00 PM.

Game Day School Attire: jeans, white shirt & warm-up jacket

Game Day Menu: Sprouts sandwiches, chips, cookie, drink.

Note: Girls will fill out sandwich orders with Team Mom on Tuesday. We will also have them complete a form listing any allergies and/or food preferences. Team moms will do our best to accommodate these needs when possible. However, if a cheerleader does not want the dinner choice for that week or has allergies/dietary restrictions, they are responsible for providing their own meal. We will let you know at the beginning of each week, what the meal plan is for that week's game.

Game Day Uniform/Packing List: (Girls, you may leave your bags in coach Root's room the morning of game day if you choose.)

  • Away uniform (G on shell, green skirt - see photo) It is suggested that you pack both uniforms to avoid any issues.
  • bloomers
  • cheer shoes
  • no show socks
  • game day bow

  • comb/brush
  • hair tie
  • bra - remember bra straps should never be visible
  • water bottle (we will provide water for the girls to fill)

Game Day Banner Assignment: TBD....Coach Mulkey will let the girls know at Tuesday's practice which girls have banner duty this week. Each week, the girls that have banner duty will also have meal duty. These girls will be responsible for making sure everything is cleaned up after dinner.

Game Day Notes: Girls will practice from 2:15 - 4:00. Meal will be provided at approximately 4:00. After dinner, they will change, and prepare for their game. For away games they will ride a GCPS bus to the hosting team's school. Parents, you will meet the girls at the game each week, be sure to bring money to purchase your tickets.

Game Day Help Wanted: We are looking for a few dad's to help hold the banners at the games each week. If you can help, please email Jennifer York and let her know! (
