Forks Township Cheerleading
Hello, and welcome to the 2017 season of Forks Cheerleading! My name is Stacy Menza and I am the Cheerleading Commissioner :)
We are currently on the search for coaches! Please contact me if you are interested. We will have Easton High School cheerleaders (former Falcons!) helping out this year with all of our squads, but we need some enthusiastic and patient adults to keep everything running smoothly.
If you are a returning cheer family, welcome back! We are in for some changes this year. I hope to improve the program to the best of my ability. We will be having a fundraiser this year that will go directly to the cheering prorgam. Any funds we raise stay within our program and will benefit our cheerleaders. If anyone is interested in chairing or co-chairing a fundraising committee please let me know.
Also new this year is the Team Parent option on the volunteer screen. Please consider being a team parent to assist the coach in organizing your cheerleader's squad.
The program teaches cheering to township residents from kindergarten through eighth grade. The cheerleaders are taught jumps, arm levels, voice projection, stunts, pyramids, cheers, and dance routines.
Practice begins the second week of July and is held two to three times a week. The practices last from one hour and one half to two hours. Practices are held at the Forks Township Community Park. The cheerleaders also participate in the Easton Cheering Clinic, competitions, and perform at Forks Community Days. The season lasts until approximately the end of November.
The cheerleaders will cheer for the Forks Falcons in the Suburban Youth Football League. The football games begin the last week of August and are held on Saturdays or Sundays.
In addition to learning the sport of cheerleading, the cheerleaders are also are taught spirit, teamwork, sportsmanship, leadership, and dedication.
