&uot;If something happens, like if it rains, and we have to move it, once people get there, they’ll see where we are,&uot; said Greg Griffin.

Everyone interested should attend one registration so that uniforms and equipment can be ordered and plans can be made for the upcoming season.

&uot;Last year, the first one was real slow, and I think people waited until closer to the time school started,&uot; Griffin said. &uot;I hope people won’t do that this time, because it makes planning a lot easier.&uot;

&uot;It’s especially important for cheerleaders,&uot; he continued. &uot;Last year, we signed up cheerleaders up to the last minute, and it was hard and too expensive to make special cheerleader uniform orders.&uot;

All cheerleaders who register on July 9 and 12 will become members of a squad, but after July 12, only registrations for squads with less than twelve members can be accepted.

The registration fee is $25 per child, and there will be a $35-per-child deposit on cheerleader uniforms due when the uniform is issued.

When the uniform is returned in good condition at the end of the season, the deposit will be returned.

&uot;You can also buy the uniform outright,&uot; Griffin said.

Griffin said that raffle tickets will be offered to sell during the season in order to offset registration costs.
