Edmond North Pom.
The purpose of the cheerleader and pomsquads at Edmond North High School is to promote school spirit, support various organized activities, represent the school, and provide positive leadership in all aspects of school life. These squads will promote and encourage student body involvement and will exemplify loyalty, cooperation, and positive attitudes.

All Candidates must attend every session of the clinic, mock tryouts, and tryouts. Those failing to attend all clinic days and mock tryouts will not be permitted to try out. If a participant has another school activity during clinic, a written request must be submitted to the school coach and approved prior to the start of clinic. It is that person’s responsibility to learn the material covered in clinic on their own time.
Physicals must be turned in prior to the start of clinic for candidates to participate. If we do not have your physical in our possession, the candidates may only watch clinic and cannot participate.
All participants must remain in the Pom facilities until everyone has finished trying out.
No one can leave until Miss Knight or Miss Loveless tells you it’s okay to leave!!!
Try-Out results will be posted by Saturday evening on the day of try-outs on the Edmond North Pom Website www.edmondnorthpom.weebly.comand on the Siberian Gym outside doors.
We will be conducting our own camp this year to better incorporate choreography, skills, and technique unique to our squads’ needs.
The next several slides are items from the contract that are key points we want to make sure both participant and parent/guardian understand prior to trying out. (Some items have been previously mentioned so will not be repeated)
All squad members are to remember that Edmond North Pom and Cheer positions are leadership roles with high visibility. You will be looked upon to set the appropriate example for the rest of the student body. Your actions at school and away from school reflect on the rest of the squad and the school. You will need to remember the role and the challenge you have accepted as a member of the squad not to put yourself, your squad, your teachers, your coach, or the administrators in a position of having to discipline you for unbecoming actions.
**Make note of pages 7 & 8 in the contract regarding squad conduct and appearance expectation/requirements.**
Parents need to understand the following prior to your child trying out for Edmond North Cheer:
If a game trade is not made prior to the event it may result in loss of points, demerits, and/or benching for a period of time to be set by the coach.
Even if a student is excused from school, a practice miss form to miss practice must be given to the sponsor prior to the miss to be excused form the practice.
Missing a game or event without being excused or without using a game miss will result in loss of points, demerits, and/or being benched.
Each Pom member will be responsible for ALL costs associated with being a member of the Pom squads at Edmond North. Being a member of Pom can get pricey, so we want everyone to be fully aware of all expenses that are associated with Pom. We never want the cost to affect if a participant decides not to tryout, but we do want you aware of the cost involved. If you need financial help, the parent groups may offset cost by organizing and participating in fundraisers if the squad deems it necessary. Only those members who participate in the fundraisers will benefit from the profit. If further financial assistance is needed, please speak to a coach or administrator to see what other options are available.
Please refer to page 13 for required dates for all participants who make the 2013-2014 Pom Squad. These will also posted on our website www.edmondnorthpom.weebly.com
