As a cheer parent, you have to spend an enormous amount of money on things like uniforms, pom-poms, accessories, etc. We’re not even mentioning how many training camps and training lessons you have to shell out money for. If it’s all for the success of Lakeland cheerleading, it’s all going to be worth it, of course.
Still, if you are on a budget, it’s nice to be able to determine which items you actually need and which you can set aside for another time.
Personalized uniforms, bags, etc.
Do you really to have the uniforms and other accessories personalized with sublimated ink? Wouldn’t a pen or a sticker be able to do the trick? This could be an expense that cheer parents can set aside for another time. Although it would be nice to see your children’s clothing and accessories all customized and personalized, there are many things you should invest your money into other than the personalization of her cheerleading things.
New team uniforms
If you see that your daughter’s uniforms are becoming faded already or it looks worn, then it’s time to invest in a new set of uniforms. The uniform will be the first thing that people notice when cheerleaders perform. Your daughter can be judged solely based on how she looks while she’s wearing the uniform. It’s her pride and joy, so it should always look good and well-pressed. There will also be times when the uniform could be torn because of a stunt. This is a signal to buy new ones.
There is a right cheer shoes for cheerleaders. You want to invest in a non-slippery pair, so that accidents and injuries can be prevented. This may be more expensive than the regular pairs, so be ready for it. It is important that cheerleaders have the right cheer shoes because there are many accidents that can happen when they do their routines during practice, competitions, and performances.
Team travel bags
Does your cheerleader need a new travel bag? Isn’t a simple duffel bag enough? Unfortunately, women have to bring so many things other than their clothes and shoes. They have toiletries they need space for. If you haven’t bought a good travel bag for your cheerleader, now is the time to do it because she will be engaging in a lot of travels. Oops, a travel bag is not only for an actual travel. Lakeland cheerleading members also bring a lot of things during practice and, of course, cheer camps.
