Cheerleaders are expected to work as a team and attend two-three practices per week. The squads cheer at home Rams football games on Saturdays starting in mid-August through the first week of November. We expect to cheer at a minimum of six games and participate in local competitions. Practices start mid-July and continue through the end of November.
Registration for Grade K (non-competing): Cheerleaders receive poms, bow and cheer shirt for game days and performances. All events are held within Wheaton city limits.
Registration for Grades 1-8 (competing): Includes uniform (new for 2023 season), competition fees, practice space fees, competition bow, poms and shoes. Separate expenses include fundraising, individual squad fund fees and state registration fees.
Participants keep their uniform at the end of the season. Uniform styles and designs change from season to season. New participants must provide a copy of their birth certificate at uniform fittings in April. The purchase of spirit wear is optional. Parental support of their child’s squad and coaches is necessary for the success of the program.
