There will be two registration dates for you to register your daughter(s) for the 2019 season of Hudsonville Rocket Cheer. They are as follows:
~Monday, June 17th from 5pm to 8pm @ HHS Cafeteria
~Thursday, August 1st from 5pm to 8pm @ HHS Cafeteria
Note that these registrations are OPEN HOUSE style, meaning you can come any time between 5-8pm and do not need to be there for the whole time. Usually the end is the least busy if you wish to avoid lines, though we try to get through people as quickly as possible.
Please contact me ASAP if you cannot attend either of these dates, but still would like to register your daughter for the program. All registrations must be done in person!
NO LATE REGISTRATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED!! This is for insurance purposes as well as to ensure we get our uniforms in time.
