Youth Programs and Events
The Recreation Department oversees the operation of the youth football and cheerleading program for the local area youth ages 5 to 14. The program is designed to teach local area children the fundamental principles and skills of cheerleading in a fun and safe environment. Cheerleaders are broken down into teams based on age and ability. Each age group will cheer for their age-appropriate team.
