JV chaperones are still needed for show days. You will have backstage access to the show! This is an exciting way to watch the guards warm up, practice, and perform. If you’re interested, please sign up below and make sure to have a current FTCSC background check on file. We will have a quick meeting before the season starts for new chaperones. Background checks can be completed using the link below, and must be completed before chaperoning. The process can take up to 2 weeks.
We need you!
