Welcome to Youth Cheerleading!

At Keene Knights, we offer tackle football, flag football, but we also offer sideline cheerleading!  

Our cheerleading program is designed to be an introductory program to expose athletes to the sport, at a low cost and with a low commitment.  In 2023, we focused on sideline cheerleading only.  For 2024, we are super excited to grow our squads and add a competition to the season!!  

What will my athlete gain with this program?
All cheerleading athletes will learn the fundamentals of cheer:
  - Motions, Jumps, Sideline Cheers, Quarter and Half Time Cheers, Dance, Level Appropriate Stunting, Level Appropriate Tumbling, Competition

In addition to the fundamentals, our program will encourage your athlete to grow in strength, flexibility, as well as their confidence, friendships, teamwork, respect, and FUN!!

Registration Fee:
$150.00 per participant

**There will be fundraising to help offset the fee - Krispy Kreme Fundraising will begin in April!**

We are hopeful to have 3-4 teams!!  So exciting!!
Minis - Grades Kindergarten - 1st Grade (Introductory)
Youth - Grades 2-3 (May compete!)
Junior - Grades 4-5  (Will compete!)
Senior - Grades 6-8 (Will compete!)

What kind of schedule can I plan on?
- It is our goal to have (3) teams for 2024 - participants will be allocated to teams by their age.
- The season will begin on Monday, August 5th
- Practices will be held at Keene High School, outside.  Once it begins to get cold and dark, we will move inside.
