WELCOME TO FAUQUIER YOUTH CHEERLEADING!!!
We are excited to have you and your child join our cheer family. We have been an active part of the community for over 20 years. We welcome kids from within Fauquier County and the surrounding areas.
Our cheer program is open to girls (and boys) ages 5-13 years old. Cheerleaders are placed on squads based on their high school zone (Kettle Run, Fauquier, Liberty). In each zone, there are four age divisions : 7U (6-7 yrs old), 9U (8-9 yrs old), 11U (10-11 yrs old) and 13U (12-13 yrs old). Please note that your age division for you zone may or may not have a cheer squad. It all depends on how many coaches and cheerleaders we have sign up. If interested in becoming a cheer coach please check out our cheer coach tab or email me (email@example.com) for more information.
The cheer season begins with open registration in April-July. Cheerleaders are placed on squads and the rosters are released to coaches by the end of July. If you do not hear from a coach by July 28th please contact me at
. Our season runs from the end of July -beginning of November. At the end of October (exact date still TBD), we will hold our annual Cheer Spirit Day so that all squads can show off what they have learned throughout the season.
Practices: Days and times will be determined by the head coach. Practices normally begin around 6:00pm and end around 7:30pm. Generally cheer squads practice twice a week but are allowed to practice up to 4 days a week prior to school starting and a maxiumum of 3 days once school starts.
Uniforms: Cheerleaders are expected to purchase a uniform (unless they have one from last year that still fits). Uniforms are to be purchased through our team store. I will provide the link (and post it here)for our store once the store is open. You are required to purchase the shell, skirt and bloomers. The cost for these items is around $85. Besides the uniform, you are also to purchase white sneakers (which can be purchased from our league store or anywhere else you choose) and white ankle socks. Once the weather gets cooler, you will need black leggings and a long sleeve white shirt (you can purchase these cheap anywhere). There will be optional items such as socks, tshirts and pracitice shorts in our team store for you to purchase as well. Uniform fittings will be held to ensure that everyone gets a uniform that fits properly. Cheer uniforms tend to fit differently then normal clothes so all are encouraged to attend a fitting. More information on fittings will be provided once we get closer to the season.
