Dear Parents/Guardians:

There will be a cheerleading clinic this Thursday, August 13th, in two sessions. Session 1 will be from 9-10:30am. Session 2 will be from 10:30 to noon. If your child is not sure which session they are in, or hasn’t been given a session to join, please contact Coach Dowden at or come to the session that works best for your child (walk ins are okay for the clinics).

Next week’s schedule includes another clinic on Wednesday, August 19th, and tryouts on Thursday, August 20th. The clinic on Wednesday, August 19th, will be from 9-11am for everyone interested in cheerleading.

Tryouts on Thursday, August 20th, will start at 9am in the Brookpark gym and must be scheduled individually with Coach Dowden. Once again, please contact her at to schedule a tryout time. Walk ins are not permitted to tryouts. You must contact Coach Dowden in order to tryout at a specific time. We also ask that students and families not congregate around tryouts.

Students who would like to participate in cheer tryouts must have a current physical on file that has been completed, signed, and dated by a doctor, or bring one with them to tryouts. There is also a parent portion and signature for the physical that must be completed. We cannot make exceptions for students without a physical - you must have one in order to participate in tryouts.

As with all summer practices, students must bring their own mask and water bottle to clinics and tryouts.

Once again, please reach out to Coach Dowden to schedule a tryout time. The Brookpark Athletics Department wishes the best of luck to all who tryout and appreciate our students’ drive to be a part of the team. Thank you, as well, for your patience and understanding in an uncertain time.

Best regards,

Chad Clark

BMS Assistant Principal/Athletic Director
