Sideline Cheerleading: Rising K-8th graders
$100 Registration Fee

We divide our cheerleaders into grade-level teams; however, we will move cheerleaders up and down to fill teams, as needed. ALL cheerleaders of the 2020 spring Cheer season will cheer only at the Grizzly Sports Complex (10600 Determination Drive, Nokesville, VA). This eliminates the need to travel for our cheerleaders.   The program registration fee covers the fees associated with the Park Authority, insurance, and practice rental space. 

*Note: The purchase of the uniform is an additional expense and is purchased by the parent(s).


For all of our cheerleaders, parents will need to purchase the uniform through Omni Cheer, The uniform information below will also be sent via email. Please contact Cheer Admin (Amber Merritt, ) for any questions. The uniform is the parent's responsibility to order and will be sent for embroidery on April 1st.  If you are late, you will be charged extra for the embroidery.

The location and time of practice are determined by the Head Cheer Coach.  We are not able to accommodate requests for your practice nights or practice location.  Potential locations, (but not limited to) for practice include local elementary schools or The Grizzly Sports Complex.

Practices will begin the week of April 5th and games begin April 19th and the season will extend until June 14th.

Squad assignments are made the week prior to the first practice. We would love to form a cheer squad for every football team; however, this typically is not possible because the number of squads formed is dependent upon the availability of cheer coaches as well as the number of registered cheerleaders.  There will be approximately 10 girls per squad.  

Registration fees do not cover all the costs associated with running the league.  In an attempt to keep registration fees at a reasonable amount, sponsorships and fundraising is an essential component of being part of the Grizzly family.  You can choose to opt-out of this process during registration.  If you do not opt-out, you will be required to sell raffle tickets during the season.
