THE STORY:

Hello, my name is Megan Smith, I am a 13 year old cheerleader. I have had a passion for cheerleading since I was a little girl and have been learning the skills that are required for top level cheerleaders.

I'm involved in my school's cheer squad as well as taking classes at a local all-star cheer gym. For best results I should be taking two classes per week but I currently can only afford one. In recent weeks the coaches have expressed interest in me for their all-star team. For this I would need to take three classes per week, and could have other expenses like new shoes. If I actually make the team then the cost will skyrocket to cover uniforms, competition fees, and travel expenses.

As for the school team, unlike other school sports and activities, cheerleaders must buy their own uniforms, poms, and shoes. Additionally, they must pay competition fees, contribute to their snack/water funds and help cover transportation cost to all off campus events.

When I started this sport, I truly had no idea what the real cost of participation was. I guess that is the joy of being a kid. However, with the passing of my mother and my dad becoming handicapped, I have had to learn the value of a dollar. As money has run out I have had to learn the cost of my activities and have been trying to find ways to pay it myself, as it means that much to me.

I had to come up with a goal for this site and am basing this amount on my known school costs and estimated gym cost for 2 classes a week until all-star tryouts in the spring. The truth is it could be more later but honestly I would be so grateful for any sponsorship I can get as I know my dad can not handle this burden.
