I am in a small town that has a recreational town cheer program for grades 3/4, 5/6 and adding 7th for the 2019-2020 season. Once the season is over in November, that's it- there is no other opportunity to cheer in town or in school for the rest of the year. My CP does both town and All Star and one of the smaller AS comps we went to last Spring had a whole division of middle school teams that competed. She asked why we don;t have that and I am curious if your town's middle schools/junior high schools have competitive teams that do football in the Fall and basketball and competitions in the Winter and Spring? If so, how long have they been running? Another mom I know is interested in starting a new team for the 7/8 grade girls. Curious about the budget considerations, pay for coahing, etc.
