Welcome to Urbana Youth Cheerleading!
We would like to welcome our new and returning cheerleaders and their families to our program! We are very excited to start the 2018 fall season!
Urbana youth cheerleading is a program that encourages good teamwork and sportsmanship. We will work to refine and improve our athletes cheer, tumbling, and stunting techniques both individually and as a team.
Our program will cheer at the Urbana youth football home and away games on Saturday and Sundays starting in late August and ending in late October/mid-November. We will perform a half time routine for our fans as well. Our competition team members will work on a choreographed routine throughout the season and compete in an End of the Season competition in early November!
We will practice Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for the first two weeks from 6-730 or 8pm. Our first practice will be on Tuesday, August 14, 2018. Starting Tuesday, August 28, 2018, we will practice on Tuesday and Thursday only from 6-730 or 8pm. Practice locations will be at Urbana Middle School for August (on the lower fields.) In September, we will move inside. Indoor locations are Windsor Knolls Middle School, Kemptown Elementary, Green Valley Elementary, and Urbana High School.
