Competition Only- MINI SEASON
If your athlete is interested in trying an ICA CHAMPIONSHIP COMPETITION TEAM without too much time commitment but LOTS of Cheer skills, stunts and FUN then the Spring Season is their perfect choice.  This Season is all about building upon Cheer skills, learning new skills and of course trying new stunts and pyramids. Spring is a shortened season packed with all the cheer basics; motions, jumps, stunts, pyramids, dance routines, choreography and tumbling.  The season is short- only two practices per week with two competitions but lots of hard work and team bonding.  Spring is for new and seasoned cheerleaders.  It's the best way to learn new skills, work on defining  and mainting current skills and making new friends. 

Dates the season will begin the week of January 7th and will officially run through March 17th.

Enrollment for Spring Season is open for athletes currently in Grades 1st-8th.  Teams are capped due to limited practice space so register quickly
Team breakdowns will be based on enrollment NOT specifically by grade level.  
If we do not have enough grade levels for a team or a coach we will have to cancel that team. 
Your registration is not complete until you have a confirmed team placement.
IF we have enough NEW 1st-2nd graders for a team they will rent the Sparks Uniform for the season. The rental fee is non refundable and is $50.00 per athlete.  

Registration fees are $475 per athlete and cover all cheer competitions, choreography, rental space, practice shirts and all bows. Your fees are due at or before the first practice beginning the week of January 7th. Unfortunetly there are no scholarships for the Spring Season. 

Uniforms if you have a current LZ FLames Competition uniform, great!  If not you may purchase a new one for $260.00 Sometimes there are uniforms to rent from another cheerleader but you will have to find that on your own through our FB Uniform exchange group: LZ Flames Cheer Uniform Exchange

Cheer Shoes for competition cheer are at your own cost.  You will need one pair for practices and competitions that are never to be worn outside.  Cost for shoes are between $50-$100

Coaches are a vital part of our program! We appreciate and value them so much.  Please consider taking on a coaching role.  We have plenty of seasoned coaches to guide you and your child will be thrilled to have you as a part of their team! We cannot have teams without coaches and a couple of our seasoned coaches are taking the Spring off.  They will be around to help occassionally so you will have help-no worries! You don't need cheer experience to coach- just patience and the ability to count out 5-6-7-8!! Coaching is time consuming but the bond it creates with your child and their team is immeasurable.  If you have any interest or questions about coaching please email the Cheer Director, Nicole Schultes


Attendance is MANDATORY. If you cannot make choreography please do not sign up for a team.  We need ALL athletes present in order to create a successful routine.  We use a professional paid choreographer and her time is precious.  Please be on time and ready to work.
