HYSL soccer, cheer registration opens
Sign up today for the second quarter of Higley Youth Sports League – soccer and cheer. The soccer program is open to students in fifth and sixth grade. The cheer program takes place over two quarters and is open to all ages at Higley's elementary schools.
Practices will be held after school at students' home campuses. Soccer will play weekly games. Cheer will spend the first quarter practicing and learning routines and will cheer at basketball games in the second quarter. The cheer program includes a districtwide competition at the end of the season.
All registration must be completed online. The season will start after fall break. Cost: $50 for soccer; $125 for cheer. Uniforms are loaned to students.
The Higley Youth Sports League is designed to create an atmosphere of support and shared responsibility so that each and every student athlete will benefit by creating a tremendous mental scrapbook of memories from sports participation.
Throughout the remainder of the school year, we are a closed campus and we require all visitors to sign in at the office and acquire a visitor badge between the hours of 7:45 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. It is a requirement that all visitors sign in at any school office prior to entering campus while school is in session. This procedure helps us to ensure all kids safety.
