The goal of CSA Cheer is to provide area youth the opportunity to participate in the recreational sport of cheerleading within a fun, safe, and positive atmosphere. Athletes in K through 8th grades will learn foundational cheerleading skills from qualified Adult coaches with assistance from student coaches (Clarksburg High School Cheerleaders). Athletes will be instructed in Clarksburg High School Cheer motions, jumps, and stunt techniques, with safety as the main focus.
CSA Cheer supports the CSA Coyote Tackle Football Program and will run into Mid November. This year we are pleased to be offering two ways the girls can participate. We are going to have both Rec and Competition squads. The Rec Squad will cheer for all in-season home games and select away games. The Competition squad will have an extra practice each week to learn their competition routine. All girls that would like to be on the competition squad will be required to also be part of the Rec squad. There will be four squads for the 2018 season: Cubs (Grades K-2), Petites (Grades 3-4), Juniors (Grades 5-6) and Seniors (Grades 7-8). Please register for the year your child will be in school for the 2018-2019 school year.
