Does your daughter love to cheer and dance? Has she ever dreamed of performing on the big stage?
If so, then the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders have a wonderful opportunity for her.
This October, the Buccaneers Cheerleaders are once again offering a chance for girls age 6-17 to become an official member of the squad. The 14th annual Junior Cheer/Dance Clinic hosted by the Bucs Cheerleaders will provide girls with a fun, motivational experience and create memories to last a lifetime.
"The Junior Cheerleading program is a unique opportunity for the Tampa Bay Buccaneer Cheerleaders to make a positive impact on young ladies in the Bay area," said Catherine Boyd, the team's cheerleading manager. "Throughout the clinics and gameday experience, junior cheerleaders learn firsthand what it takes to become a Bucs Cheerleader. The requirements go beyond the field, and our cheerleaders emphasize to the participants that education, living a healthy lifestyle and community involvement are just as important."
Along with participating in a two-day clinic, Junior Cheerleaders will perform during a special halftime show on Sunday, October 16 when the Buccaneers face the New Orleans Saints at Raymond James Stadium.
Program participants will receive an official Tampa Bay Buccaneers Junior Cheerleader uniform and pom-pons, an autographed team poster of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders and a follow-along instructional DVD. No previous cheer or dance experience is necessary, and no audition is required.
While the deadline to register is quickly approaching, there are still two weeks remaining to sign up. Friday, September 30 is the last chance for parents to complete the online registration for their children.
The two-day clinic will be held on Saturday, October 8 and Sunday, October 9 at the team's headquarters, One Buccaneer Place. For more information, call 813.870.2700 x2430, or click here.
