Injuries
Parents need to note that cheerleading is a highly competitive and physical sport and the skills involved such as stunting, jumping, and tumbling could lead to injuries. These include but are not limited to bruises, pulled or strained muscles, torn or strained ligaments, broken bones, dislocations, paralysis or even death. We at Marshals take every precaution to limit these injuries. Unfortunately, we cannot prevent all injuries. In the event that your child is injured we will take every necessary step to ensure your child is looked after properly. Competitive cheerleading is a very strenuous sport; therefore all of the athletes in our program are expected to be in top physical condition. This includes flexibility, strength, and endurance. We will have specific conditioning and strength building exercises to make sure our athletes takes all precautions to avoid injury.

This is not limited to competitions but anywhere public that people are able to acknowledge you are a part of the Marshals family. No one is allowed to make contact through the parent viewing area during practices. This is extremely distracting to all athletes and makes our job extremely difficult. It is the parent’s responsibility to get the correct information from their child’s coach or team representative regarding practices, competition, etc. All team practices will be closed to spectators during the week prior to competition. The coaches reserve the right to close practices for spectators at ANY time for ANY reason.
