©Daniela D’Argento CHEERLEADING AF Golden Eagles Football Cheerleading Grade: 2 (as of 8/31/18) This program is for beginners and teaches participants the fundamentals of football cheerleading and prepares them for the Golden Eagles Football Cheerleading program. Participants learn sideline cheers and fundamentals such as traditional cheer movements, basic jumps, warm ups and cheer etiquette. Participants will cheer for different Glen Ellyn flag football teams. This program does not compete in cheer competitions but will perform at a cheer showcase for friends and family. Grade: 3-8 (as of 8/31/18) This two-fold program for girls and boys provides sideline cheering and halftime routines at the Golden Eagles Tackle Football games as well as participation in cheer competitions in the Chicagoland area. We teach technical cheer fundamentals and sideline cheers, along with short dance and cheer routines. Cheerleaders learn technical skills including stunting, tumbling, and a variety of jumps. Each squad cheers weekly and competes in Illinois Recreational Cheer Association (IRCA) sanctioned competitions. While no prior experience is necessary, it is helpful to have dance or gymnastics skills at the older age levels. However, nothing can replace a good attitude, a sparkling smile and a commitment to your teammates. Squad Formation: Squads are determined in June.
