Welcome to NYAA Cheering. Below you will find details on who is eligible to cheer, our policies and all important information you should need. We just wrapped up our Fall Football season but will open for registrations in May for the following year's season. We would love to have you join our squad. Please feel free to reach out with any questions at the contact link below.
Proud to announce we will be headed to COMPETITIONS again this year!!
Competitions are NOT mandatory. should your child choose to participate in them, we do need to know by September 1. you MAY NOT just join the "competition" portion of cheer. You must participate in one of our youth cheer programs, whether it be football or wrestle cheer.
The competitions will be 2-3 weekend days in November - and be completed before Thanksgiving. The competition dates have not been announced yet.
Please consider participating in competition. Our goal is to build the program to be a sideline/competition program. Where it all comes together and the girls do both automatically. The girls really enjoyed it! It is something FOR THEM. It's a day that is ALL about the girls! We cheer our teams to "Victory" each week at the games. The girls learned a lot last year with their first compeition - dedication and hard work can pay off! Although we did not all place, we didn't come in last. The girls knew it was all for them. If there were trophies or medals handed out - THEY earned it! Please see the director or any coach for more info or questions you may have.
There is a Cheer/Comp combo option available this year. You can register for just cheer, and decide to join comp at a later date. However, you MUST cheer football or wrestling to be eligible for competitions. You must fill out the registration form for comp. There is a comp fee this year of $40.
Shoes & socks will be ordered as an organization - We will have a shoe/sock fitting gatherings!
Keep your eye out for info on this!!
Registration for CHEER will be open from 5/1/22 - 6/15/23
Registration for COMP will be open from 5/1/22 - 9/1/23
