Please note: Cheerleaders cheer whenever and wherever the football players play. They cheer at their home field, WRHS or travel away to any of the fields in the Meadowlands Jr. Football Program. Sometimes games will fall on holidays like Halloween and all girls are expected to cheer. In addition, regardless of the weather, cheerleaders will cheer in the cold, heat, rain, sleet or snow. Unless the game is cancelled or rescheduled…we cheer!
