The goal of CSA Cheer is to provide area youth the opportunity to participate in the recreational sport of cheerleading within a fun, safe, and positive atmosphere. Athletes in K through 8th grades will learn foundational cheerleading skills from qualified Adult coaches with assistance from student coaches (Clarksburg High School Cheerleaders). Athletes will be instructed in Clarksburg High School Cheer motions, jumps, and stunt techniques, with safety as the main focus.
CSA Cheer supports the CSA Coyote Tackle Football Program and will run into Mid November. We will cheer for all in-season home games and select away games. Should any teams make it to the playoffs we will put out a request for girls that can come to cheer them on! At the end of the season we will compete in the CCYCFL cheer competition.
In past years we have had four squads: Cubs (Grades K-2), Petites (Grades 3-4), Juniors (Grades 5-6) and Seniors (Grades 7-8). This is always subject to change depending upon enrollments. Please register for the year your child will be in school for the 2020-2021 school year.
