Participants in last year’s Youth Cheer and Dance Clinic perform with Napa High School Spiritleaders at the halftime of a junior varsity football game at Memorial Stadium.
Participants in last year’s Youth Cheer and Dance Clinic perform in Messner Gym before walking to Memorial Stadium to perform at halftime of a junior varsity football game.
The 39-time national champion Napa High School Spiritleaders will hold their annual Youth Cheer & Dance Clinic for kindergartners through eighth-graders from 3:45 to 5:45 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30.
Registration is from 3:45 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Messner Gym. The cost of the clinic is $40, which includes an award ribbon and goodie bag. Clinic T-shirts will be available for $20. No pre-payments or pre-registration will be accepted and no arrivals will be permitted on campus before 3:45 p.m. It’s all walk-in registration.
Participants should bring a water bottle, eat a snack beforehand, and wear comfortable blue, gold and white clothes.
This year, for the first time, registration and the clinic will both be in Messner Gym and parents will be welcome to stay and watch, though it’s not required.
After learning age-appropriate routines, participants will walk to Memorial Stadium with their buddy instructor and perform with the Spiritleaders at halftime of the junior varsity game against American Canyon.
Also new will be four locations at the stadium at which to pick up children immediately after the halftime performance, in hopes of speeding up the process.
Spiritleaders director Hollie Johnson said she doesn’t know when the Spiritleaders will be going for their 40th national title.
“We’ve put nationals on hold right now due to the pandemic the last few years, and started offering other great performing opportunities for them that they’ve been loving — like performing in Golden 1 Center at a NBA Kings game or at halftime of a Sacramento State men’s basketball game, and we are doing something with the Warriors this year.”
She said trips to nationals are expensive and that the pandemic has made it even hard to afford for families.
“It’s very difficult to take on all the extra fundraisers needed as neither students nor parents have the ability to take on all that extra time right now,” Johnson said. “Maybe in the future when things calm down. We still compete within the state, however.”
For the ninth straight year, Napa Parks and Recreation is offering fall volleyball sessions for 9- to 11-year-olds and 12- to 14-year-olds. Sessions are Mondays and Wednesdays from 4-5 p.m. and 5-6 p.m., beginning Monday, Sept. 26. Enrollment is available at bit.ly/3qnyHlP under Classes & Activities.
