Homecoming is a fun highlight of the season! Here is a little information about what homecoming is all about!
Rain or Shine! Hopefully, the day will be dry and pleasant. If the forecast calls for bad weather, please arrange to bring gear for your child. Please note, thunder and lightning will cancel games!
Homecoming Committee: The actual time frames for all pre-game activities, meeting places, snack lists, and fun extras is up to the homecoming parents. Each squad has a parent(s) who have volunteered as the homecoming parent(s). They will be working with the cheer coaches, team leads, and the football coaches to have this event run smoothly. They will be responsible for letting you know the final schedule and activities. Please make sure you reach out to the team parents to provide contact information for the team. Families, please be on the look out for a handout or email from your squad’s homecoming representative.
Some ideas may include:
Flowers for the cheerleaders
Decorating the field with balloons/signs
Handing out footballs to children at the games
Pizza party the Friday night before the game
Doughnuts and juice the morning of homecoming
Matching hair ribbons
Meeting for a cheer picnic before the game (depending on what time you are cheering)
Homecoming date – The date is dependent on the date set by Cowboys football. As soon as we know the date we will share it with you so that each team can start preparing.
We will be walking in the Arlington Heights Memorial Day Parade and the 4th of July Parade. Cheerleaders will meet at a designated location and we will walk as a team calling out cheers. More information will come related to each parade.
Date to be determined but it will be during a regular practice.
Photo Forms will be handed out before picture day. Bring the photo forms to Picture Day, if you forget your form we will have extras there.
Attire: Cowboys cheerleading uniform, sleeves/turtle necks, white socks, white gym shoes, and AHYAA bow. NO JEWELRY, NO GUM! BIG SMILES!
