Volunteers & Coaching

Each cheer squad will need a team parent! This is a great opportunity to help and get to know the other parents and girls.

If you have specific team or coach requests (such as a specific person she would like to be paired with for transportation issues or a football team to follow for family reasons) we will do our best to honor one request per child.

  • Coaching Applications are due by May 12, 2015 before 5:00 P.M.
  • Please see Coaches' Corner, Football & Cheer to register for a head-coaching position
