Frequently Asked Questions
What's the time commitment?
Practices: Team Volunteers practice once a week, from 6:30-9:30pm on Wednesdays in Centennial, CO (near I-25 and E-470). We have breaks over the summer and during the holidays. Community Volunteers do not attend practices.
Events: We average about 2 events per month, including performances and non-performing appearances. Our volunteers attend as many of these events as they are able to commit to.
How much does it cost?
Team Volunteers: There is no program cost, though our volunteers are required to cover certain individual expenses such as apparel and gym fees. In your first year, a purchase of a uniform and two t-shirts is required (approximately $250). These should last multiple seasons. We don't charge dues; instead, in order to ensure that volunteers remain connected to our organizational mission and to make as large and impactful a donation to our beneficiary as possible, every CHEER Colorado volunteer is required to fundraise at least $300 over the course of the season.
Community Volunteers: Required to purchase a t-shirt ($15-20) and fundraise at least $50 over the course of a season.
What are your age requirements?
We have a minimum age of 21. We do not have—and will never have—a maximum age.
Do I have to be part of the LGBTQ community to join?
We are a diverse and inclusive team. We welcome all genders and sexual orientations, and Team Volunteers can choose their preferred uniform version: top/skirt/liner, top/shorts/pants, or a combination of both.
I've never cheered before. Can I still join?
Heck yes! Prior experience is not a requirement. If you've never cheered before, you'll find the pre-tryout bootcamps and clinics especially helpful, though we cannot guarantee that they alone will provide 100% of the training you will need to be ready to make the team right away. If you're curious enough to have made it this far down the FAQ page, you should give it a shot—at the very least, you'll get your first stunting experience under your belt!
I'd like to help out, but I'm not willing/able to stunt/perform. Can I still be involved?
Absolutely! Our Community Volunteers serve supportive, non-performing roles behind the scenes to ensure that our performances, fundraisers, and collaborative projects are successful. Send us an email if you're interested in being considered!
