Sports, GNG Diamonds Cheering
GNG Diamonds Cheer Team
GNG Diamonds is a competitive cheer program for kids in PK - 8th Grade and is in its 17th year of operation. Athletes will receive instruction and training in dance, choreography, and cheering for approximately 16 weeks. In a typical year, competition season would begin mid February and continue through March where the athletes would perform at competitions.
Going into fall 2021, the competition season is not yet certain. Last year, the Diamonds competed in virtual competitions during the same timeframe. As more information becomes available about competitions, we will be in touch.
It is important for the adults to know that this program is a competitive, team-based sport. When athletes register, the expectation is that they attend all practices and also communicate illness in a timely manner. Attendance at practice is for the individual and the team. Participants should plan on Saturdays in Feb and March for competitions. If you have questions about what the schedule will be, please call Becky at 926-4735.
GNG Recreation will loan the uniform tops as needed. Participants are required to purchase team sneakers (approx. $50) and shorts (approx. $20) and are asked to help with fund raising for team bows, socks, awards, and equipment.
Will begin at the Community Building in New Gloucester. Our hope is to move our program back to its typical home at Memorial School, but that is not certain. Our program is open to athletes from New Gloucester, Gray, and surrounding communities.
