2022-23 JFC K – 6th Grade CHEERLEADING

Daughters of the King

Girls will learn all the skills and drills for sideline cheer. It’ll include cheers, dance, low level stunts and basic tumbling. Grades k-6th. Games will be Saturdays at 10:00 AM.

Cost $130.00 (the church does not profit from cheer as the uniform cost is what makes it more expensive for registration)

Please email Coach Lea for any further details needed @ lnathaniel@jacksonfriends.org

We will also study and focus on the fruit of the spirit. These girls will walk off the court with cheer skills, memories, friendships but most importantly all the tools they need to share and love others just like Jesus did. 

We need coaches! If you have any interest in helping coach, please email lnathaniel@jacksonfriends.org or you may call the church office at 330-966-0616.

Coach Lea

P.S. – No experience needed for cheer or to be an Assistant Cheer Coach!
