Beginning the week of July 22nd, cheerleaders will start the regular practice schedule which is held Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. During this week of practices, the cheerleaders will focus on learning our core cheers. The week of July 29th, the cheerleaders will begin practice with their game day squad. Your cheer coach will inform you of any practice schedule changes.
Beginning September 3rd competition practice will begin. Squads will be determined at that time. There will be a change in the practice schedule as well as a change in the group you practice with. This is due to age groups for competition. An additional day of practice will be added for girls that will be competing. Competition practice will be from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays. Game Day Squads will continue to practice on Thursday nights from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm for the remainder of the football season.
Our cheerleaders have the opportunity to participate in cheer competition. The date and location is to be determined. They compete against other TNYFL Cheer squads. All cheerleaders must compete in their own age brackets regardless of the regular season squad they are assigned to (some girls cheer out of their age bracket so they can cheer for their brother’s football team). Competition practice will begin September 3rd. Squads will be determined that night. Beginning September 3rd, regular season squads will have practice on Thursdays nights from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Practice with your competition squad will be on Monday and Thursday nights from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. More details about competition will be announced after the regular season games begin.
Cheer Dress Code
*Cheerleaders must wear comfortable, but not baggy, clothing for practice.
*They should be able to tuck in their shirt so it does not rise while doing tumbles & jumps.
*No undergarments should be visible.
*No shirts showing midriff.
*No short shorts.
*Hair should be pulled back and out of your cheerleader's face. This is for their safety.
*No flip flops.
*Proper footwear is required for safety; we recommend athletic shoes with a good grip bottom not fashion wear or converse style shoes.
*Uniforms must be worn at all games and other official TNYFL events.
*Cheerleaders should come to every game in FULL UNIFORM.
*If the cheerleader does not come in full uniform, they will not be able to take the field. This includes hair pulled up and out of the face, uniform, shoes, bow, etc.

For all Participants
Football & Cheerleading are TEAM SPORTS! Absences make planning difficult for coaches and your team. Be at practices & games on time! Special commitments must be brought to the attention of your head coach. Everyone understands situations do arise that will cause your child to miss practice or games but please be sure to inform your head coach if you will not be able to attend.
All participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation to and from practices and games. Inform your coach of any transportation problems. If a parent or guardian will not be staying with your child at a practice or game please inform the coach and make sure they have a way to contact you in case of an emergency. PARENTS MUST PICK UP THEIR CHILDREN PROMPTLY AT THE END OF PRACTICES OR GAMES!!
A regular season game schedule will be provided as soon as it is available to us from TNYFL (the league that we play within). This is normally after the Jamboree game which is held in mid-August. This allows time for all communities in the program to place their teams.
Please be aware that dates are always subject to change during the season. There is usually a game every Saturday with 4 games played at our home site & 4 being played away. Home games are played at Mundy Memorial Park. We ask that out Cheerleaders attend all games and travel with their teams.
Playoffs begin at the end of the regular season. Please inform your coach if you will not be able to attend a game.
We play communities outside of Wilson County so please make note that you will have practices and games during Wilson County Schools October fall intersession/break.
