Greenfield Youth Cheer

Greenfield Youth Cheerleading Program

The Greenfield Youth Cheerleading Program is a co-ed, cheerleading program, for all children in 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, that live within the Greenfield School District boundaries. Ideally, we will have three cheer teams:

  • 3rd and 4th grade 
  • 5th and 6th grade 
  • 7th and 8th grade 

Our teams perform at home games for the Greenfield Youth Football Program. (Away games are optional and up to the Head Coach.) Our Cheerleading Program is the feeder program for Greenfield High School. Greenfield High School Cheerleaders volunteer their time to student-teach all of our teams. We teach the principles of cheer and develop athletes so they are prepared to excel at the high school level. 


Mission Statement

The mission statement of GYFCP is to introduce the sport of football and cheerleading to the children in our community, through a select program. We strive to develop solid fundamentals, discipline, good sportsmanship, strong character and respect for the team.  Our goal is to help develop these important life skills while developing their love for the sport, and their desire to continue on to the next level.  While we aim for success, we want to promote a positive and fun experience, in a safe environment, which we hope will develop a passion and enthusiasm for football and cheerleading.

Purpose

Our purpose is to provide a quality athletic experience to children of our community, through a select program. Players are coached to become teammates, to be responsible for their equipment, to know their position on the field/team, and to win and lose with dignity.  We want our athletes and families to take pride in their team and our organization, and to remember they represent the Greenfield community.

Program Philosophy

  • We want to provide a quality football and cheerleading program where athletes will have a positive, constructive, safe environment to learn the fundamentals of football and cheerleading.
  • We encourage athletes to achieve success academically, not just athletically. Additionally, we want our athletes to be positive role models in our community.
  • We believe that children can learn valuable life lessons from organized sports. Every athlete will be given opportunities to contribute to the overall team's success.
  • As a competitive, select, youth football and cheerleading program, we are committed to providing athletes and families with the best coaches, leadership, and program structure possible, using experienced and trained volunteers in each role that has responsibility.
  • Player development and striving to win are the focus for each team; however, winning at the expense of any players, opponents, or the organization will not be tolerated.
  • Athletes, Parents and Coaches are expected to adhere to their respective code of conduct.

Off Season Training

During the off season, our teams are encouraged to participate in tumbling classes at Elite Tumbling in Caledonia. Classes are open to past and future GYFCP athletes going into 3rd grade next fall - going into 9th grade next fall. GYFCP classes are taught by Logan, who is the Assistant Varsity Cheer Coach at Greenfield High School, who also happens to work at Elite Tumbling! He will be able to provide growth in our program and help our athletes be prepared for their High School Cheerleading experience!

Registration fees 2024

Registration fees will be a la carte this year, and will vary depending on if you are a new cheer athlete or if you are a returning cheer athlete. Cost will range from $130-$350. (Not including early bird discount.) Returning athletes that still have their poms and jacket from last year can save costs by not needing to purchase them again. If you already have a tumbling membership, that will also save you costs.  Cost is broken down during registration.

 


Volunteer fee, $300

A $300.00 volunteer fee CHECK will be due at equipment hand out. This check will be returned to you upon completion of your scheduled volunteer commitment.

This needs to be a separate check as we will hold it all season until your volunteer requirements are fulfilled, and return it to you at equipment turn-in at the end of the season.


Equipment/Uniform fee, $100

A $100.00 equipment fee CHECK will be due at equipment hand out. This check will be returned to you when all of our gear (uniform) is returned at the end of the season. 

This needs to be a separate check as we will hold it all season until you return our equipment. 

Unfortunately, in previous years, we've had families not return our gear and/or uniforms. It is very costly to our program if we borrow out equipment and it doesn't get returned to us.


Fundraising

Please see the "Fundraising" tab in the header above (on the main page) for more info. 

Athletes are required to participate in a mandatory fundraiser. Fundraising is due by the first game. Failure or refusal to participate may result in limitation or removal from the program.  The success of the GYFCP is dependent on the involvement of its participants. 


Cheerleading Teams / Practices / Games (subject to change)

Greenfield Youth Cheerleading consists of three teams.

  • 3rd and 4th grade (cheer for 5th-6th grade football)
  • 5th and 6th grade (cheer for 7th grade football)
  • 7th and 8th grade (cheer for 8th grade football)

We will cheer at all home games. It is a possibility to cheer at away games; however, that decision is made by the Head Coach.

Starting end-July/early-August, we will practice 3 days per week. Practices run through mid-October.

  • Two days per week, we will practice at Greenfield Middle School. Practice times are set by the Head Coach and will typically be between 5pm and 8pm. 
  • New in 2024, one day per week, we will practice indoors at Elite Tumbling in Caledonia. This will always be on Sundays, from 2-3pm.

Need to miss practice?

The athlete or parent /guardian is responsible to contact the Head Coach prior to the start of practice or the absence will be considered unexcused, regardless of cause. 

Texts, emails and /or phone calls after the start of practice will be considered unexcused. Anticipated, potentially excused, absences need to be CLEARLY communicated to the Head Coach a minimum of 48 hours prior to the date of anticipated absence.
