CHEERLEADING

Jackson Friends Cheerleading Skills Building is for grades K – 6th . This year the program will look a little different. Due to COVID-19 and limiting our numbers in the gym, cheerleading will not cheer for basketball games this year. Instead, cheerleading will meet once a week for eight weeks, starting the week of January 4th. JFC cheerleading is for all! Coach Carrie has been leading our girls for many years now and has done an incredible job! Skills building nights will take place on a week night but that night is yet to be determined. The girls will work on many different cheer skills for the first seven sessions and on the final eighth session, they will do a highlight show, all while learning more about Jesus!Again, our cheerleaders will not be cheering on Saturdays this year, as their program is separate this season, and more focused on learning different cheer skills.
The girls may be split into two groups, depending on age and number of participants.

Cheerleading Skills Building will run from January 4th – February 22nd (ending with the highlight show).Registration will close on December 14th, 2020.

Cost: $80.00


*There will not be cheer uniforms for this skills building program. Instead we will have cheer shirts for the program.
For more information please contact our cheer director, Carrie Maletich through email @ carriemaletich@gmail.com
