The NYO Cheer program is a fantastic opportunity for girls in the fall. Our cheer program consists of girls grades 1st through 8th. The cheerleaders will be broken into designated squads that will cheer and perform at the games for our Bigs Football League. The cheer season begins with a three-day clinic conducted by a cheerleading squad designed to get the girls prepared to start the season! After the clinic, teams average 2-3 events per week (practices and games). The program focuses not only on cheer, but also stunting, tumbling, and dance. Towards the end of October, our cheer program hosts the NYO Cheer Off, a friendly competition where our young ladies show off their skills in choreographed, team centered routines.
Our goal is to provide the best opportunity for cheerleaders both brand new and extremely experienced to build their skillsets, and enjoy cheerleading through confidence building activities, positive leadership, and constant encouragement.
In conjunction with NYO’s mission, our cheer program emphasizes character development, sportsmanship, healthy competition, and positive coaching.
