CLYFL CHEERLEADING GENERAL INFORMATION FOR THE 2019 SEASON

 

Cheerleading is very popular and fast growing sport for children. Cheerleading is an activity that uses organized routines made up of elements from dance and gymnastics.

CLYFL cheerleading provides cheer and dance instruction as well as performance opportunities for children ages 4 thru 14, whether first time cheerleaders or seasoned veterans.  Our program is structured to progress at each level so that the cheerleaders are prepared for High School try-outs. In addition to cheering, the cheerleaders are taught to develop self-confidence, how to be a productive team member, the basics of football and most of all, how to have fun!

PLACEMENT

 

  1. CLYFL cheerleading does not have try-outs or cuts.All cheerleaders will be placed on a squad until all squads have reached their maximum number of cheerleaders.

  2. Due to safety reasons we do not move cheerleaders out of their age group. All placement decisions will be made on a case by case basis and we offer no guarantees that any request will be fulfilled.

UNIFORMS

 CLYFL does provide each girl with a uniform*, bloomers and pompoms* for the season based upon what a parent registers for. Parents are responsible for registering for the correct size for their daughters. Please see our up to date uniform policy under Documents on the main page of our website.

GAMES

We cannot overemphasize the importance of participating in games.  The majority of stunts and dance routines require ALL cheerleaders be included in order to be performed properly.  Each girl plays a vital role in the squad′s presentation so it is important to be in attendance at all games which are held on Saturday and perhaps one game during the week.

VOLUNTEERS

CLYFL is a non-profit organization run solely by volunteers; most with their own children are in our football and/or cheer program.  We do not compensate any of our volunteers, including coaches, board members and team moms, yet they and many others devote a substantial amount of their time and energy to support our youth sports program.  Without volunteers, we would not have a program for our children.

In order for the league to run smoothly, the participation of the parents is crucial.  So please, donate your time to the league and help us make this a better and stronger organization.  We could always use Cheerleading Coaches for all age groups.

NOTE:  Parents will be asked to volunteer for one 2-3 hour shift at the concession stand during the season. It is an easy job and is actually a lot of fun!  Watch out for more information from your child′s coach.
