We are looking forward to a great 2022 cheer season!


We are always looking for volunteers. Coaches and assistant coaches do not need any cheer experience. We will teach you everything you need to know. All you need is a positive attitude and a willingness to help! Parent coaches and assistants are welcome in addition to high school and middle school cheerleaders and dancers. We can verify volunteer hours for anyone looking to meet their school requirements. If you or someone you know is looking for a fun and rewarding volunteer position, please email me at dunlapjflcheer@gmail.com.


This season we will implement the changes below in hopes of strengthening our program while making it more manageable for our volunteers. As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, please email me.


**Our season kicks off on Labor Day weekend.

**There are typically 8 regular season games and potentially 4 playoff games.

Introduction to beginner stunts, tumbling and jumps based on team ability

This team is an excellent option for cheerleaders that are new to the sport or those who cannot commit to every game and practice for the season. This team focuses on team building and beginner to intermediate cheer knowledge. Basic stunting will be taught along with cheers and jumps. No experience is needed. This team is a fun way to introduce new-comers to the sport of cheerleading or for experienced cheerleaders to be able to cheer and be a part of the program without commiting to every practice and game.

Highest level of commitment to team

Practice 2x a week until games start then 1x a week. Additional practices could be added if necessary

Minimal local travel required to away games and playoff games as the schedule dictates

Intermediate to advanced stunting and jumps- Based on team ability

Cheerleaders interested in being a part of the Gold team must be willing to go the extra mile to commit to improving their skills. Team members will be expected to be an active member of the team. They will also be required to attend all practices and games assigned to them. Cheerleaders selected to be on this team will be expected to come to practice with a positive attitude and work hard to improve cheer knowledge and commit to personal improvement. If your cheerleader is interested in trying out for their school cheer team, or is looking to advance their skills this may be an option to explore. Experience is not necessary to be a part of this team, just a strong work ethic and positive attitude! Coaches will make the final determination which cheerleaders will be placed on this team.
