Welcome to Chatham Cheerleading!
Chatham Youth Cheerleading is open to all Chatham residents in grades 4 through 8 during school year 2020-2021 (4th grade cheerleaders will cheer alongside the 5th graders for the 5th grade football team).
“A good cheerleader is not measured by the height of her jumps but the span of her spirit.”
The goals of the Chatham Youth Cheerleading program are to develop confidence, leadership, good sportsmanship, and to represent Chatham in a positive manner. Our program encourages each cheerleader to have fun, do their best, and work together as a team.
This is an instructional program where basic to intermediate cheerleading skills are taught and practiced in a supervised setting under the guidance of Parent Manager Volunteers and Teen Coaches. Our program provides spirit for Chatham youth tackle football teams – home and away, rain or shine.
Parent Manager Volunteers
Coaching will be provided by Chatham High School Varsity Cheerleaders and supervised by certified parent managers. All concerns, questions, and issues should be addressed directly with parent managers. Parents should not communicate directly with CHS cheerleader coaches.
We are in need of more parent manager volunteers for the 2020 season for all grade levels.
The success of the program relies greatly on having enough parent volunteers. Each practice and game must have at least two parent managers. If we do not have enough volunteers, the teams will consolidated to cheer for multiple grades. We strongly encourage parents to volunteer so we have enough coverage for practices and games. At least four certified parent managers are required for each squad. Certification consists of a background check and participation in the Rutgers Safety Training Course.
Parent Manager Expectations and Time Commitment
• Complete Rutgers Safety Certification Course (one time, 3 hour evening class)
• Supervise a total of 6 weekday evening practices across season
• Supervise a total of 6 Sunday football games across season
• No cheer experience necessary
