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 August. Games this year will be at the high school near the turf field.  Parents can watch their child cheer from the outside perimeters of the fields. Cheerleaders should arrive to games 10 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. 

Practices are held once a week, typically Tuesdays.  Practices are also held at the high school.  Practices will be lead by the coaches, teaching chants, jumps and proper movements. Stunting is not allowed at this age level. First practices begin the week of 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.
