Womens Junior Varsity Cheerleading
Hello potential AHS Cheerleaders!
We truly hope you all are doing well and staying safe during this crazy time! We miss getting to interact and see all of your faces in the hallways of Ashley High School!
If you have not heard - our beloved Coach Griggs is moving to Texas! While she will be missed by all at Ashley, especially the cheerleading program, Angela Babineau is excited to be taking over and running the varsity program while Lindsey McDermott will be stepping in to coach the JV girls. Both of us are excited to begin working with all of you and creating new Cheer memories this year!
As you are all well aware, Covid-19 has created a very unique and unprecedented situation for all aspects of life. In an attempt to work with the new demands/constraints on high school athletics in New Hanover County, we have come up with a solution which we believe will help you progress with your skills while still following the required rules and regulations. Videos are now posted in both the Varsity and JV sections of our Ashley Athletics Cheer Webpage (they are the exact same videos). We ask that you watch the videos to learn the cheers/dances and practice those at home. Our intention is for you to practice on your own so that you are prepared and ready when we [eventually] are able to evaluate you in person (on that specific material). Unfortunately, we do not know exactly when that evaluation will take place due to the changing requirements from NCHSAA, our governor, and New Hanover County Schools. We sincerely hope that we will be able to begin before the new school year in August! We also hope you will have patience and understanding while we learn to adjust and cope with these requirements and regulations. All of us would much rather have normal tryouts and practices but we have to consider the safety of our athletes, coaches, and all those involved - first and foremost.
As we gain new information about dates, workout material, or any other perdent information- we will update the website. So please check back regularly! You can also email Coach Babineau at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or Coach McDermott at email@example.com
