TRISTATE ATHLETICS HALF YEAR PREP
Tristate Athletics Half Year Prep programs will begin Friday, November 6th. Sign Up TODAY! Please see the detailed information below regarding the 2015-2016 Half Year Season.
Our half year program is geared towards athletes ages 7 to 18 who desire the all star cheer experience with a shorter commitment time while competing and gaining new skills. Our half year teams are also perfect for athletes that also participate in other sports during the year. Teams will focus on proper technique and execution of stunts, jumps, motions, tumbling, and choreography. Throughout the season our staff will also focus on building confidence, instilling teamwork, and developing our athletes.
The half year prep season at Tristate runs from November through March. Athletes will practice every Friday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm and Sunday from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. Depending on the schedule, there will be times the practice schedule will change due to events. We will give a complete practice and competition calendar the first week of practice
