Jamfest Kansas City Nationals 2019

It’s a busy couple of weeks at KC Cheer.  All teams will be competing at Jamfest Kansas City Nationals on February 16 and 17, 2019. The event is held at the Hy-Vee Arena located at 1800 Genessee St. KCMO.

Admission for spectators is $15 for one day or $25 for both days. Children (5-12) are $10 for the weekend. Military (with ID), Seniors 65+ and Children 4 and under are free.  Additional Information can be found on the Jamfest Website

General Reminders

It is so important that all athletes are on time. These competitions will not hold our practice times, so if we are without someone at check-in, we lose our chance to warm up and practice.

This is our chance to have our hometown crowd there to cheer on our teams. Let's really show them our KC Cheer spirit and crowd support!

It is required that all athletes be at all KC Cheer performances (unless specified below) to cheer loudly for all our teams. Please pay close attention to the schedules below to make sure you are in the arena at all of the listed performance times. It is unacceptable to miss a performance because you're eating a meal or getting ready. All of these activities can and should be planned around performance times.

Our athletes love to perform for a cheering crowd! We love to have you there to watch, but remember to make some noise too! Bring on the loud voices, lighted signs, noisemakers and cowbells to support our teams.

It is super exciting to be competing against teams from all over the country right here in our city. Remember to show great sportsmanship (cheerleaders AND parents), and hospitality so teams want to return to KC for future competitions.

JAMfest Super Nationals 2019

It’s hard to believe we are leaving for Jamfest Super Nationals this Friday! This is a huge competition full of outstanding teams and lots of fun. We are very excited for our teams to compete with some of the best teams in the nation. Below you will find many travel details. Please read & print this to bring with you to refer to throughout the weekend. In addition to the things listed below, we are asking the following of cheerleaders and parents traveling with KC Cheer:

First, for cheerleaders, we ask that you perform to the very best of your ability, that you support all KC Cheer teams by cheering them on at each performance, and that you conduct yourselves in a responsible and respectable manner. Parents, we as you to help us monitor our athletes this weekend. Please give them support and guidance when they need it. Bring your loud voices, noise makers and KC Cheer spirit to each and every performance. (See very old Jamfest photo at right for spirit inspiration. Can you spot some familiar faces? :) )

Before We Go

Extra Practices

The KC Cheer Staff reserves the right to call extra practices on any night of the week prior to a major competition. If it is decided your team needs extra practice, your coach will let you know immediately so athletes can make proper arrangements. Please remember that all practices leading up to 2 weeks before a competition are mandatory!

Important Reminders

  • You are representing KC Cheer! Please be considerate of others in the hotel, show great sportsmanship on and off the floor and follow all curfew rules.

  • KC Cheer team members are required to be at all KC Cheer performances. No exceptions.

  • No swimming is allowed during the competition. If you are staying Sunday night and choose to swim after all competition is complete, that is fine.

  • Remember that you are here to compete. That means your first priority is your team, your gym and all performances and practices that go with being part of this group. Please do not make plans for the girls to go shopping while in Indy, as chances are it will probably interfere with other teams' performance times that they're required to be present for.

  • Do not make plans that will interfere with any practice or performance.

  • All cheerleaders should make sure they have their phones with them as team parents will be sending text messages to notify people of last minute instructions. At a competition this large, it's important to be in constant communication.

  • Please do not allow your child to travel between the hotel, mall and arena alone. These areas are open to the public and will be very crowded this weekend.

  • On the "crowded" note, it might be a good idea to bring a small cooler with breakfast foods inside: muffins, fruit, bagels, juice etc. Breakfast will be important to most of our team members, so please come prepared.

  • KC Cheer has a team room in the convention center. The room number is 236. Please understand that teams will be using this room throughout the weekend for a meeting place and any practices we may need. Do not leave your valuables in this room, as it will not be locked.

  • The KC Cheer staff and parents will be making room checks to enforce this curfew. If cheerleaders do not adhere to this rule their team will have consequences imposed on them. You're here to do a job, and we need all athletes to be well-rested for the long days ahead.

  • Please try to adhere to the schedule given to the athletes. ALL team members are required to be at ALL KC Cheer performances!

 

The Bus

  • Open containers are not allowed on the bus. All drinks must have a lid.

  • You must share seats on the bus. (Unless you paid for a double seat)

  • Please remember the four seats in the first row of the bus are reserved for the coaches

  • The luggage bins will be marked with the name of each of our hotels. Please be sure to put your luggage in the correct bin to expedite unloading in Indy.

  • Cheerleaders should wear comfortable clothes on the bus. They may wear slippers on the bus, but must have real shoes to change in to for lunch time.

  • The buses are equipped with TVs for movies. Please make sure your movies are age appropriate.

  • Cheerleaders are to ride their team buses. Cheerleaders 5th grade and under are required to have a parent with them on the bus.

  • If you are going to make different arrangements to get home from Indianapolis, please inform the person who is in charge of your bus before Sunday night.

  • Do not leave items on the bus, as they may not be there on Sunday when you get back on.

One bus will meet Force team members and parents at the Marriott Indy East at 5:30a.m. Dressed and ready to go. If traveling home by bus, your luggage will have to be on the bus at this time. Do not be late! The weather will make travel slower than normal and the teams cannot be late. This bus will then pick up any Force team members at the Sheraton City Center Hotel between 6:00-6:10a.m. Followed by the Hilton Garden Inn. All Force athletes need to be dressed and ready to go when they get on the bus. The bus will then proceed to the Convention Center.

Buses will pick up Fortune & Finesse athletes and parents at the Marriott Indy East at 6:45a.m. Anyone traveling home by bus will have to put their luggage on the bus at this time. The bus will then head to The Sheraton followed by the Hilton Garden Inn. Fortune and Finesse will be the two teams in the Arena to cheer on Force at 7:57a.m. Please be ready to load your luggage when the buses arrive at your hotel. There will only be a small crowd to cheer on Force, so you cannot be late for their performance!

The final buses will pick up all other athletes (Fierce Five, Fresh Flawless, Fearless, Fiesta, Fame) and family members at the Marriott Indy East at 9:00a.m. Please be in the lobby with your luggage to load on the bus when it arrives. The buses will then proceed to the Sheraton, followed by the Hilton Garden Inn. If you are traveling home by bus your luggage must be on the bus at this time.

  • Hotel checkout is at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday morning.

  • Make sure your athlete takes ALL needed items with her in the morning on Sunday to the arena. You will not be able to get to this luggage until the end of the day on Sunday when we load the buses.

  • If your “team” bus is not the one to pick you up, please remember which bus you put your luggage. You have the option of riding that bus home if you prefer.

  • The buses will begin loading as soon as possible after the awards ceremonies. We will NOT be stopping for food on the return trip, so please plan for this

Cheersport Kansas City 2018

Teams will be competing at Cheersport Kansas City Championships on March 24, 2018. The event is held at The Kansas City Convention Center in downtown Kansas City. 

Admission for spectators is $15, CASH ONLY. Children 10 and under are free. A complete list of performance times and venue information can be found on the Cheersport website.

General Reminders

It is so important that all athletes are on time. These competitions will not hold our practice times, so if we are without someone at check-in, we lose our chance to warm up and practice.

It is required that all athletes be at all KC Cheer performances to cheer loudly for all our teams. Please pay close attention to the schedules below to make sure you are in the arena at all of the listed performance times. It is unacceptable to miss a performance because you're eating a meal or getting ready to meet your coach (hair and makeup). All of these activities can and should be planned around performance times.

It is super exciting to be competing against teams from all over the country right here in our city. Remember to show great sportsmanship (cheerleaders AND parents), and hospitality so teams want to return to KC for future competitions.

Uniform/Apparel

Teams should be dressed in red jersey and black pants or warm ups when not in uniform. Remember that you must always have your tank top or warm up jacket on to cover your midriff if you are not in the practice room or performing. Everyone will wear the red bow.

Schedule

Listed below are the times to be dressed and ready to meet your coaches. It is very important that everyone is dressed and entirely ready at the times listed below.
