We got a few pictures of the Gray’s Creek Headhunters Cheerleaders (7-8).

I was told that they have been doing a “wonderful job this year with head coach Angela Phillips and assistant coach Sanaii Morris.”

A different kind of boot camp

August 4, 2008

From Matt Smith, marketing specialist for Scotland County Parks and Recreation…

For the 2008 Parks and Recreation football season, Scotland County Parks and Recreation Cheerleading Coordinator Alicia Krout is taking a new approach to getting prepared for the season.
She’s hosting a cheerleading “boot camp” for coaches.
The coach’s boot camp, which will be held on August 12 and 13, will be an opportunity for Parks and Recreation cheerleading coaches to have fun in an interactive way and sharpen their cheerleading skills.
The boot camp will be a place to educate the coaches and review some of the fundamentals they may be a little rusty on.
During the three to four hour course, Krout will teach the coaches the fundamentals of cheerleading, safe building techniques when cheering, and participate in problem solving skills.
“The goal is to raise the bar for our county’s cheerleading program and to educate our coaches while preparing them the best we can,” said Krout. “I believe we have the best Parks and Recreation All-Star cheerleaders in the Statewide Athletics Conference and we’d like to keep it that way.”
Along with fundamentals, the coaches will also be taught 15 cheers that they can teach their squads and cheerleading moves to build upon throughout the season.
The coaches will also receive an instructional DVD along with a folder which provides handouts on stretching, arm motions, making the initial contact with participants and the first parent’s meeting.
Cheerleading registration is being held from now to August 9 at Scotland Place from 8 am to 5:30 pm and coaches are still needed for Flag and Minor league teams.
Registration is for girls ages 7-12.
This year the County Commissioners approved the funding to purchase cheerleading skirts that will be issued to the cheerleaders at the beginning of the season and collected at the last game. This will significantly reduce the cost for minor and midget cheerleaders. Parks and Recreation are hoping that more girls will participate now that it is more affordable.
Krout and Parks and Recreation hope that the coaches will really enjoy the boot camp. “Our volunteers are special people who donate a lot of time and energy so that our programs are successful,” said Krout. “Volunteers make it happen!”
