Lago Vista Youth Football and Cheer League (LVYFL) Cheerleaders play an instrumental role in raising, leading and maintaining team spirit on the field and in the community. Lago Vista Youth Football and Cheer League (LVYFL) Cheer works hand in hand with the football players, entertaining and represening the Viking brand.
The Cheer Division is a wonderful recreation for new and experienced cheerleaders grades Kindergarten to 6th grade. The League age/grade rules for playing will be governed by UIL rules. Players shall be classified by the fall grade of the season they are competing in and will not be moved down without approval. If a player is too old for his grade level, they will be bumped up to the next grade level to play. Home school players will be in the grade that they would have naturally progressed to by starting public school in the year that they turned 5 before September 1st.
We take pride in focusing our organization around cooperation, self confidence, respect, great friendships and all of the important foundations of cheerleading.
Each football team can have an associated cheerleading squad managed by a cheer coach and we support the football players by cheering at games.
You must be 18 years or older in order to be a Cheer Head Coach, 16 years or older in order to be a Cheer Assistant Coach.
UNIFORM INFORMATION -
Uniform packages are included with registration costs.
Cheer Registration payments must be made on time since uniforms must be paid in full before ordered. Any late uniform orders will incur extra shipping charges at the expense of the athlete or no uniform at all if it is not possible to order late from the vendor.
Athletes will be required to run, do calisthenics and practice basic jumps etc. Because this is a rigorous and challenging activity for some, you may find that your athlete is tired, possibly a little grumpy, and easily agitated. As your child becomes more fit and gains confidence, his/her attitude will improve. Continue to show support and enthusiasm to your child during this phase.
Please wear cool loose clothing (gym shorts and t-shirt) and cleats. Cheer should wear athletic shoes. Remember to drink plenty of water well before practice begins and avoid sugary drinks and greasy foods prior to practice.
All athletes are responsible for keeping their equipment clean and in good condition. Practice and game uniforms should be washed or dry cleaned at least once a week. Please follow cleaning requirements attached to the cheer uniform. Cheer shoes must be cleaned before each game. Cheer shoes WILL ONLY be worn at games and competition. Pom-poms should be kept clean and stored in a dry area.
