Cheer Competition Details

Here are some of the excerpts from Mr. Warnke's e-mails to coaches. I will send you more information as I receive them.

The SDEAA Cheer/Dance Competition is quickly approaching us, and March 1st will be here before we know it. Since not all teams will be competing in both Dance and Cheer competitions, there will be two separate sections. The Cheer Competition will begin promptly at 9:00 am in Jefferson's main gym, on Saturday, March 1st. The dance competition will follow the cheer competition and will begin at approximately 11:00 am.

We will be using the IESA Rules and Scoring Procedures for this competition. As for judges, we have secured 3 judges, who are also cheer coaches at Downers Grove North, Downers Grove South, and Hinsdale Central High Schools. Teams from the Large Squad Competition, Small Squad Competition, and Dance Competition who earn 1st place will receive a 1st place trophy for their schools.
