JFC 1st- 6th Grade CHEERLEADING 2021-22

JFC Cheer 2021-2022

Are you looking for a fun but modest cheer program?
If so, you're in the right spot. 
JFC Cheer is so excited to introduce our Daughters of the King Program. 
This program starts in 1st grade and ends in 6th grade. Each squad will consist of two coaches and five grade level girls. Practice will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6:15 - 7:15 PM at Jackson Friends. starting in December, 2021. Games will be on Saturdays in January/February, times have not been determined yet. Each practice will consist of dance, sideline cheer skills, age appropriate tumbling/cheer stunt skills and a small group Bible study. We will have four head coaches that will lead practice. We are looking for assistant coaches to help with Saturday game days. The goal for this squad is to equip our girls with biblical knowledge and a relationship with Jesus Christ. Let’s face it Middle School is no picnic. That being said, how much easier would it be with a good group of friends and a strong relationship with Jesus Christ. Our girls will learn to be caring, kind, compassionate, joyful and respectful young ladies. They will learn how important it is to have a Christ like attitude on and off the court. Once they hit the 5th and 6th grade squad they will be a part of our Daughters of the King Bible study, where we will talk, read the word and encourage our older girls. We hope you join us for what is going to be an awesome season!

P.S. - No experience needed for cheer or to be an Assistant Cheer Coach!

*Please note, cheer is doing their best to have uniforms this season. If there is any product shortage, proportional refunds will be given and girls will be given t-shirt and pants in lieu of uniforms.*

High School Basketball Leagues (9th-12th) 2021-22

Jackson Friends Church High School Basketball Leagues are for grades 9th - 12th. The leagues are recreational and are also "bring your own team". MINIMUM OF EIGHT PLAYERS ON A TEAM. Players will sign up online and put down their team name or players on their team, to be linked together. Individuals that do not have enough players to make a team may sign up individually, and if there are enough kids to make a team, we will make extra teams. Almost always at the 9th/10th grade level, we are able to make at least one team, sometimes two, from individual players. If for some reason we are not able to put the high schooler on a team, you will receive FULL REFUND. At the 11th/12th grade level, for any players without a team, we usually ask some of our current teams if they would take on an extra player. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it does not. Again a FULL REFUND will be given to anyone who does not end up getting on a team, if signing up as an individual.

Cost for registration is $90 for either high school league and for those that need a jersey, it is $16 for a jersey (yours to keep and reuse). All jerseys for teams must be JFC jerseys (unless a team has all the same custom uniforms, MUST BE APPROVED by league director). 

The league is split up into two divisions:
Freshmen/Sophomore Division
Junior/Senior Division

EVERY TEAM MUST HAVE AN ADULT 21 OR OLDER SITTING ON THE BENCH. It can be a parent or whoever you want, but they must be 21 or older. This helps us keep the players on the bench under control during the game, with the presence of a parent/adult. Must have this throughout the season to be eligible for playoffs.

Games for the FRESHMAN/SOPHOMORE Division will be at Jackson Friends Church on Saturday Evenings starting December 4th (game times will be starting at 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 PM, potentially a little earlier times in December). There will be a total of ten regular season games, and the top eight teams make the playoffs. Three games will be played in December (4th, 11th and 18th) and the remaining seven will be played January 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th, February 5th, 12th and 19th. Playoffs will begin with the first round on Saturday, February 26th. The second round of the playoffs will be Friday, March 4th, and the championship game will be Saturday, March 5th. *Playoff dates are subject to change, but this is the current plan. Teams will receive a notice weeks ahead of time if there is a change here*

Games for the JUNIOR/SENIOR Division will be at Jackson Friends Church on Thursday/Friday Evenings starting December 2nd. DUE TO A CHURCH EVENT FRIDAY EVENING, December 3rd, most teams 11th/12th grade teams will not play their first game until Thursday/Friday December 9th/10th. TEAMS THAT DO NOT PLAY ON THE FIRST DAY , THURSDAY DEC. 2nd, WILL HAVE THAT MAKE UP GAME ON SATURDAY MORNING EITHER DEC. 11th or 18th. Game times will be starting at 4:30, 5:30, 6:30, 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30 PM (could potentially have a 10:30 PM game on Fridays if there was an overhaul of teams). Games on Thursday evenings will not go past 8:30 PM starting time, and most games each week will be on Friday, with only a couple on Thursday each week. There will be a total of ten regular season games, and the top eight teams make the playoffs. Three games will be played in December (2nd/3rd, 9th/10th and 16th/17th) and the remaining seven will be played January 6th/7th, 13th/14th, 20th/21st, 27th/28th, February 3rd/4th, 10th/11th and 17th/18th. Playoffs will begin February 25th. The first two rounds of the playoffs will be on Fridays, Feb. 25th and March 4th, with the championship game on Saturday, March 5th. *Playoff dates are subject to change, but this is the current plan. Teams will receive a notice weeks ahead of time if there is a change here*

AS IT WAS LAST YEAR, IT IS ONLINE REGISTRATION ONLY.
Make sure teammates know they must go online to sign up!

Each game will feature a half time devotion/prayer (could be after the game, depending on league directors decision) with the players. We want to make sure participants have an enjoyable experience with the game and hear about Jesus.

Before the season begins there will be an email sent out to parents/participants on the expectations for this season. It was also be reiterated at the first games of the year. Players and everyone alike will be held to a high standard, as we want this league running at it's highest potential!

There are no practices at the high school level for JFC basketball, due to gym schedule unavailability. HOWEVER, if some teams want to practice and can make it work right after school (4 - 5 PM) on Mondays or Tuesdays, that is a possibility. It worked out for a handful of teams last year, but those are the only times we have available because of the time our K-8th grade leagues take up the gym during the week.

As always, we will do our best to keep the facilities clean and safe for kids, parents and fans alike!
We hope you will join us this season!

There will be a total of 10 practices and 10 regular season games (along with one extra game for each team via playoffs or consolation game). *VERY IMPORTANT* – Games in December will be on SATURDAY AFTERNOONS at Jackson Friends Church (December 4th, 11th and 18th). Games in JANUARY/FEBRUARY will be on FRIDAY EVENINGS at THE ROCK OF CANAL FULTON (709 Elm Ridge Ave, Canal Fulton, OH 44614), roughly 5 to 7 minutes drive from Jackson Friends Church. Practices will remain on Thursday evenings at Jackson Friends Church throughout January and February. The top eight teams at the end of the regular season will make the playoff bracket, teams that fall outside the top eight will play in a consolation game (so all teams will get at least 11 games).

There will be two evaluation dates options that league participants may choose from, to be evaluated before teams are created. Tuesday, November 9th OR Thursday, November 18th. Evaluations will run from 5:30 - 7:15 PM on both dates, and you may come ANYTIME during that time frame. For example, some kids may choose to come at 5:45 PM, while others may come at 6:30 PM, and so on. We recommend not coming right at the beginning, because that is always the biggest rush. We will be sending out the expectations for players and parents via email. We want to make sure we are all on the same page with expectations for both Jackson Friends and participants/parents! 

There will be a brief coaches meeting on Thursday, November 18th, at 7:15 PM (immediately following the last evaluation night). It will take place in the bistro area, just outside the gym. We ask that all parents interested in helping coach attend this meeting. There will be a coaches application for first time coaches and we will also go over the rules, expectations, etc. for the season.

The league will be split up into five divisions:

Kindergarten Division
1st - 2nd Grade A Division (Division for more experienced 1st/2nd graders)
1st-2nd Grade B Division (Division for beginners or less experienced 1st/2nd graders)
3rd - 4th Grade Division
5th - 6th Grade Division


Teams will practice once weekly (Monday or Tuesday evening), with games on Saturday mornings/afternoons. The league will run from November 29 - February 26th (including a short Christmas break). There will be 11 practices (three practices before Christmas break, eight after) and 8 games (all after Christmas break). The first practice depending on each player's team will be November 29th or 30th. First game will be after break, on January 8th.

There will be two evaluation dates options that league participants may choose from, to be evaluated before teams are created. Evaluations for grades 1st – 6th will take place on Thursday, November 11th AND Tuesday, November 16th from 5:30 PM – 8:15 PM. You only need to attend ONE evaluation night. Participants can come any time between the 5:30 – 8:15 PM window to be evaluated (ex. – 1st grader John could come at 5:45 PM, but 4th grader Sarah shows up at 7:20 PM). Participants will go through a number of drills (with other participants of the same age group) and should be finished in roughly 15 minutes or so. The KINDERGARTEN age group does not need to be evaluated, as many of these kids are on similar skill levels, just picking up the game for the first time or being fairly new to it. Parents will have an opportunity to give an assessment of their kindergarten child’s skill level in the registration questions.  Evaluations for 1st-6th grade will be at Jackson Friends Church inside our gym. Immediately following EACH evaluations, we will have a brief coaches meeting at 8:15 PM in the bistro outside of the gym, for any parents interested in coach or that have already signed up (only need to attend one meeting). We will have a coaching application to fill out for new coaches and we will go over the league rules, expectations, etc. Expectations for parents will be sent out through email, and addressed in the first game week.

We hope you will join us this season!
