Cheer parents, please see information about the first week below AND also see additional information at the Cheer page.

All parents are expected to volunteer to keep the program operating.

  • Team parent: One or two individuals selected by the coach to help with communications and needs of the team

GLAYF & GLAYC is part of the MMPFL.

Volunteers & Coaching

Each cheer squad will need a coach and 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 July 10, 2024 before 11:00 P.M. 
  • Please see Coaches page to register for a head-coaching position

Please contact Lacey Bull with any questions, concerns, or if you are interested in coaching at [email protected]

Have a great season!
