Practice begins August 1st. August practices are no more than 10 hours per week. After Labor Day, practice reduces to 6 hours per week. The time allocated to practice does not include break time. Water breaks are given as needed and when requested by the participants.
The age chart for the cheer program is in the table below. The age of the participant on 31 July of the participating year is the reference age for this chart. In Palos Verdes, new and returning cheerleaders to our program will be slotted on squads using the nominal grade as stated in the table. Special dispensation from the Board is required for a younger cheerleader to participate in a higher Division. (It is generally discouraged as a younger cheerleader that participates in grade levels above their current grade is at a significant disadvantage with respect to interpersonal and technical skill.)
