Do you have team spirit? YMCA Cheerleading offer girls the chance to get active and have some fun cheering on their favorite YMCA Youth Sports teams. Cheerleaders will build self-confidence and self-esteem while developing social skills and healthy relationships with other girls.

If you do not want to play flag football, but would rather cheer your team on to victory then participate in the Y's Cheerleading program. At the Y we are devoted to strengthening the spirit, mind and body of our youth. This program is designed to teach participants the basics of cheerleading. Basic tumbling, cheers and stunting will be introduced to the team. The team will learn a basic routine and cheers to perform at YMCA Flag Football games. Go Team Go! 

The YMCA puts safety first and emphasizes positive competition. Our YMCA youth cheerleading program is committed to youth development through an instructional league that emphasizes the fundamentals of cheerleading, as well as teaching age appropriate cheers.
