Q: What does the registration fee cover?
A: Uniforms/Poms, insurance, practice & game facilities, equipment, cheer supplies, program administration & operations, fundraising, referees, league fees, and year-end trophies, etc.
Q: Does the City of Johns Creek or Fulton County help out?
A: No. Many other youth programs like Alpharetta, Roswell, Sharon Springs, Sandy Springs, etc, get support from their City or County. However, JCYFA has tried to get support/resources from the City of Johns Creek and Fulton County however nothing is available. Leagues such as JCYFA are formed and run by volunteers. Q: What are the time commitments for practice and days?
A: Practice is 1 hour a week for 8-10 weeks and 1 game a week (Grades K-2 aprox 1 hour & Grades 3-5 aprox 2 hours).
Q: Where are most practices held?
A: Practices are held at local schools.
Q: When do practices start?
A: Practice starts early August (the week before school begins).
Q: Where are the games held?
A: Home Games are usually located at NVHS or JCHS; most Away Games are at local schools (Chattahoochee, Lassiter, Centennial, Kings Ridge, Mount Pisgah, Sandy Springs) - we typically have 4 home games and 4 away games.
Q: Are games only on Saturdays and is it every Saturday?
A: Yes, the season starts on the last Saturday in August, then we have Labor Day weekend off, and then resume for 7 straight Saturdays. After that, we have 2-3 weeks of playoffs and championship games. In rare circumstances there could be games on another day if we have a weather make-up day or a playoff play-in game.
Q: How many cheer squads are there?
A: That is determined by the final registration numbers. There are two teams: Gladiators which are Maroon/Gold (reflects Johns Creek HS) and Titans which are Navy/Silver/White (reflects Northview HS).
Q: Is there any involvement with the high school cheerleaders? Are there Cheer Camps?
A: Yes. If interested, there are optional summer cheer camps conducted by both Johns Creek High School and Northview High School. These camps are a great way for our cheerleaders to learn fundamentals such as motions, jumps, cheers, chants and stunting. Camps are usually held in July or August and costs are typically $100-$175.
