Basketball Cheer Squad
Basketball Cheer Squad is the beginning level cheer squad for EDE and is open to ages 5-12. Cheerleaders learn approximately 20 cheers and one halftime dance routine during weekly fall practices. They cheer for the Bellevue Parks Department youth basketball league in the winter. The new season will start with a parent & cheerleader meeting and uniform fitting on Thursday, September 27th, at 4:15pm at Highland Center in Bellevue.
This team focuses on:
• Cheers and Chants
• Beginning dance
• Cheer skills (jumps, motions, etc.)
Additional uniform costs are required as well. The cost for 2016-17 was $144 and included the uniform shell & skirt, spankies, pom poms, T-shirt, and hair bow. We work hard to keep the uniform costs low and use the same style every year so once you’ve purchased the uniform, you don’t need to buy it again.
This team performs at games and events including:
• Cheering for the Parks Department Youth Basketball League
• Halftime at a high school basketball game
Basketball Cheer Squad is offered on Thursdays from 4:15 to 5:00pm at Highland Community Center.
The Eastside Dream Elite cheerleading program is associated with Bellevue Parks, Mercer Island Parks, Renton Parks, Kirkland Parks, Ballard Boys & Girls Club, and Redmond-Sammamish Boys & Girls Club. Try-outs are not required for any EDE teams, and all teams are non-competitive. We work hard to keep costs low for EDE participants. Scholarships for class fees are available from the respective organizations for residents who qualify. Uniform fees are not covered by those scholarships, however we make every effort to help those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to participate.
