Special Olympics IOWA 2020 Cheer Squad

Attention High School Cheer Coaches:

The ICCA has been asked to be a part of Special Olympics IOWA 2020.  This is the 15th year that we have been performing.  It is a very rewarding experience for the cheerleaders and athletes.  All high school cheerleaders are invited to be a part of this special event.  It is preferred that the cheer coach attend with the cheerleaders; however, if this is not possible, a cheer parent will be permitted.

Participation and fees:

The cost for each cheerleader is a nonrefundable fee of $20, and the coach’s fee is $10 (IF you would like meal and t-shirt) which is donated to the Special Olympics Cheer Program. The first 50 cheerleaders to pay their nonrefundable fee will be accepted.  Make all checks payable to ICCA. We ask that you limit your registration to four cheerleaders per school.  The deadline to register is May 1st, 2020.

Date and Responsibilities:

The cheerleaders will learn a routine at Hilton Coliseum on May TBA.  Registration will start at 11:45 AM and practice will begin at NOON!  The cheerleaders will host a cheer clinic for the Special Olympic athletes immediately following the practice.  That evening the cheerleaders will perform the routine they learned that day at the Special Olympics IOWA 2020 Opening Ceremonies held in Ames at Hilton Coliseum.

IOWA STATE REQUIRES THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION FOR ALL CHEERLEADERS AND COACHES:  Name, grade, date of birth, address, and email. Please see registration form below.

What to bring and wear:

Coaches must be sure to bring medical form and ICCA release forms for each cheerleader.  Cheerleaders will need to wear shorts, t-shirt and cheer shoes to practice. All NFHS Spirit rules will be followed including NO JEWELRY during practice, clinic, and performance.  Cheerleaders will receive a boxed supper or may bring money to eat out for supper.

For the performance cheerleaders will wear their school uniforms with sleeves and bring POMS.   The Hilton Coliseum locker rooms will be available for the cheerleaders to change.
