The cheerleaders cheer for the football teams of the same grade. Currently there will be 4 football teams: Grades 1 and 2, Grades 3 and 4, Grades 5 and 6 (Reserve) and Grades 7 and 8 (Varsity)
Season of Play: Fall
Games: The regular season for GCYL runs from the end of August to the end of October for 8 games. There are 1-2 preseason games in early August. Every team plays at least 1 post season game. Post season can run until the second weekend in November. Games are Saturdays or Sundays.
Practices: 1 practice (1- 1.5 hours) per week. Days and time to be determined by coaches.
Our Goals: Grow the girls love for the sport of cheerleading, teach the fundamentals of the sport while supporting our football program, represent our program with pride and reinforce the importance of our faith in God and all we do.
Our expectations: Each cheerleader is required to attend a mandatory cheer camp during the summer. (July 30-Aug 2 for the 2019 season) We expect each cheerleader to attend and fully participate in weekly practices and games and participate in the squad service projects decided upon by the coach and/ or team parent.
Coaches Corner: Parents are encouraged to volunteer to be head coaches and assistant coaches for all grades. At least one current and experienced varsity cheerleaders (grades 7/8) will be a mentor for each squad grades 1-4
