STORM LIGHTNING GIRLS APPEARANCE REQUEST
Whether it's signing autographs, posing for pictures or helping contribute to area community causes, the Sioux Falls Storm Lightning Girls Cheer Team is a proven premium entertainment attraction. Team members have appeared at hundreds of tradeshows, grand openings, autograph sessions, awards ceremonies, parades and charitable events.
The Storm will do their best to fulfill as many of the Lightning Girls appearance requests as we can. We do prefer at least four (4) weeks notice for all requests to help with scheduling. Accessibility is greater during the months of December-June for evening and weekend events other than when a request conflicts with a Storm Football home game, squad practices and or day of game rehearsals. Appearances can be scheduled during the off-season but are on a very limited basis.
A minimum of two cheerleaders are required for all general appearances. We request that the organization provide a secure dressing/change area within the appearance location for the cheerleaders to store personal belongings. It is possible to request a particular individual cheerleader, but we reserve the right, pending her availability, to substitute other team members. Appearance requests from a business or charity that are considered a 'conflict of interest' with the current corporate sponsors of the Sioux Falls Storm will not be considered.
Appearances generally vary from one-to-two hours. Requests for events that will start at 9:00 PM or later will not be considered. Extended times for events such as golf or bowling tournaments, etc., will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Cheerleaders generally wear their official team uniforms with pom poms, but if requested, they can appear in more casual clothing such as team-identified warm-up outfits. Water must be provided for the cheer team members at all events.
If requested by the attending Cheer Team member, the event organizer will provide security assistance for the girls when departing the location.
In most cases, all Lightning Girls appearances are restricted to Lincoln and Minnehaha Counties with no travel fees applied except if distance is greater than ten or more miles each way (a fee of 50-cents per mile, per vehicle, applies). If an appearance is scheduled outside of the stated county travel area, the same cost-per-mile fee applies.
