Squad/Level Update
April 20, 2014

All registered cheerleaders have been notified of their placement for the 2014 season.  We are currently still recruiting for Mite Level cheerleaders (grades 2, 3 & 4).  Our varsity roster is full on the PeeWee level (grade 5 & 6) and Midget level (grade 7 & 8).  If you are interested in cheering, you are welcome to fill out a registration form, we will start a waiting list and will reach out once we have a minimum of 12 cheerleaders signed up for that level.  Thank you.  Joanne Jones, Head Cheerleading Coordinator


Try-outs 2014

Try-outs have ended and everyone did a great job!  Results will be sent via e-mail by Monday so be on the lookout.  Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Joanne Jones (  

2014 Cheer Information

2014 - Information for Parents

Do you have questions about the SLYFC cheerleading program?  General Information about try-outs, stunt clinics, practices, approximate costs, etc. are in the attached document (link above).  This is "FYI" only as information does change and is updated throughout the season.

The SLYFC cheerleading program is open to children in grades 2 through 8 (squads are based on the grade you are entering in the Fall, not your age).  We love seeing our returning cheerleaders and are excited to have new cheerleaders join us, whether you're entering grade 2 or grade 8!  Previous experience is not necessary to participate in our program - we'll help you to learn what you need to know!  If you would like to be considered for a varsity squad, a try-out is required (April 14-17, KES).   We will have 'stunt clinics' in the Spring as well as a 3 day camp in the summer (we do consider this mandatory and there is an additional fee for it).

The Cheer season is August - November and includes practices, cheering at games, performing a routine at half-time, and participating in competitions.  

The "levels" are Mites (grades 2-4), PeeWees (grades 5-6) and Midgets (grades 7-8).  Depending upon our registration numbers, we will have both a varsity and JV squad per level.  Each squad is coached by a head coach (adult), 2-3 junior assistant coaches (youth who have 'graduated' from our own program!), and often an assistant coach (adult). 

If you have any questions, please contact Joanne Jones, Head Cheer Coordinator, or Jennifer Ingersoll, Assistant Cheer Coordinator, through the "Contact Info" page on the left.



Cheer Essentials

ALL of the cheerleaders are encouraged to take some tumbling classes in the off-season to help improve their skills for the season, which will also help the SLYFC cheer squads place better at competitions.  (You are welcome to try out any gym that offers classes!)

Being a Cheerleader and what you can Learn
As coaches and coordinators, there is so much we teach the kids and so much more they take from this program outside of the actual mechanics of cheer.
  • RESPECT yourselves and others
  • PERSEVERE and stick with things - progress is slow but it comes
  • be POSITIVE young ladies, value yourselves
  • SHARE your abilities
  • HELP your peers
  • TEACH the things you know
  • BE a positive leader in your COMMUNITY
 (Thank you Coach Maryann!)
