Practices will be one day a week and games are held on Saturday or Sunday. Season runs from the beginning of August through Mid-November.
Competition and Sideline Cheer (entering 2nd - 8th grade): Eagle Competition Cheerleaders will compete in 3 to 4 Illinois Cheer Association (ICA) Competitions and also cheer on our Eagle Football teams at home and away games. Practices will be a minimum of 2 days a week. Cheer season runs from mid-July through ICA State Competition weekend in December. Every Competition Cheerleader is required to fundraise to cover State Competition Fees.
We believe that the Elk Grove Youth Football Cheerleading program offers our athletes the ability to reach their highest level of skill by providing them with proper training, coaching, motivation, and discipline. Through the participation and instruction in our cheerleading program, we will promote the ideas of good sportsmanship, personal integrity, perseverance and healthy lifestyle. By providing these opportunities, we expect to achieve excellence on the sidelines as well as the competitive mat.
