We are excited to introduce our first YMCA Youth Cheer program. Offered for kids in K-6th grade, this opportunity will provide participants a chance to perform in front of live audiences. The Eagle cheer team will get to perform during the home youth football games occurring in September and October. The focus of this program is to develop social skills, self confidence, and healthy relationships with others, while learning the basic fundamentals of cheerleading such as: basic motions, jumps, cheers and chants. 

Dates: August 14th – October 21st

Grades: K – 6th

Location: Practices – Tuesday & Thursday 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm *(practice length will vary and it will only be twice a week for the first 3 weeks, then once a week after that)

Game Days – 1) Southern Boone High School Football Field – Tackle Football (Sept 9th, 23rd, Oct 7th)

2) Ashland City Park – Flag Football (Sep 10th, 24th, Oct 8th)

3) NCYFL Cheer Competition (TBD at a later date)

Fee:  $80 Y-Member/$100 Non-member (includes cheer top, skirt, pom-poms & red bow)

Participants will be able to reuse uniform (pom-poms included) in upcoming seasons, which will decrease registration fee.


*Deadline to register: August 14th. $25 late fee will be assessed after the deadline.
