Flag Cheerleading

What you need: Cheerleaders will need a black skirt, not denim material, and tennis shoes. Once colder weather approaches you may want black leggings, a long sleeved shirt underneath, or gloves and hat as necessary.

The League provides: Uniform t-shirts will be handed out before the first game (these are yours to keep). Pom poms will be distributed for games only and returned back to the coach each week.

Divisions:
Preschool/ Young 5/ Kindergarten
1st/2nd Grade

Flag teams are not decided until the end of August. Games are held at the high school on the practice football fields behind the stadium. Both age groups will cheer in the grassy space located in the middle of fields A and B, facing their coordinating age football team. Parents can view their child from the outside perimeters of the fields. Cheerleaders should arrive to games 20 minutes before start time to get stretched and warmed up with their coach. Please have hair out of the face and no jewelry or gum. Please walk your child to the middle of the field when dropping off and meet them back in the same spot when game time is done. Cheerleaders will not be released without an adult.

Practices are held on Tuesdays from 6-7 pm at the High School.  Practices will be lead by the Varsity Cheer team and coaches, teaching chants, jumps and proper movements. Stunting is not allowed at this age level. First practice is August 14th

Flag football/ cheer and inclement weather: We do everything possible to NOT cancel flag football/cheer due to rain and wet conditions (rescheduling is challenging)…but the league is also very aware that our youngest players often do not have fun when they are cold and wet. If the weather is adverse, keep checking your email/league website/facebook for cancellation information just prior to the start time.
