CHEER

The Jr. Knights and Jr. Warrior cheerleaders have the privilege of combining as New Lenox Elite to join the Illinois Recreational Cheerleading Association (IRCA) and competing against the best recreational cheerleaders from around the State!!

In 2019 all 7 of our teams advanced to state and our 7th grade team took 1st Place in their division!!

Rising Grades K-8

 Kindergarten Mascot - This year we will register incoming Kindergarten athletes as Mascots for our Varsity teams! Mascots will cheer with our Varsity level athletes during games and be incorporated into our halftime routine. The cost for this will be $100.00 and include a cheer bow & t-shirt

For a cheerleader in rising grades 1-8, we will be adhering to the guidelines and rules of the IRCA. Cheerleaders can choose while registering to be Sideline Only ( cheer for Jr. Knights or Jr. Warriors at their football games) or Sideline and Competition (cheer for football games and participate in ALL competitions.

Competition Dates

Competition Dates are confirmed late June early July. As soon as these dates are finalized they will be communicated to Families. Competitions begin late September/early October and run through early December (STATE) if their team advances.  If cheering for Competition you MUST attend any and all competitions! If you can’t commit to all competition dates we ask that you choose Sideline Only.

Practices

Practices will begin on Tuesday, July 20, 2021

How many days we will practice and times are TBD as of now. Your child’s coach will reach out to you closer to the start date to give more information. Sideline only athletes will practice less than Competition Athletes. Majority of practices will typically take place Tuesday-Thursday but days are subject to change once we begin indoor practices. All outdoor practices will be held at Francis Field, Indoor space is TBD. In order to make the experience enjoyable for all families, parents, athletes and coaches MUST adhere to the attendance policy and the Code of Conduct for NLYFA and the rules of the IRCA.
