She's a cheerleader....Now what????

My daughter is a VERY different person than my DH or me...

She's recently joined a Cheerleading team and tonight is her first practice.

I know absolutely NOTHING about Cheer... So, can anyone answer some questions?

It's an indoor practice facility...What should her outfit be? Shorts or Pants? 

What should I expect as a parent?

What should she expect as a child?


(She's almost 8 years old and has never cheered/danced before)

Shorts, maybe in the teams colour... a white or basic colour tee shirt, white runners. White ankle socks. Hair up.

They didn't tell me anything specific. :(

It seems like all the girls wear Soffee(sp) shorts and fancy Nike t-shirts.

Shit, she doesn't have any white running shoes.

First on my list, thanks!

Wear similar clothing as the other kids. Keep it light they get hot and sweaty fsst. As for what to expect just expect it won't be cheap and she will have to practice.

I'm gonna have to go drop some money; she doesn't have very much of that kind of stuff. Thank you!
