Any equipment or uniform not returned from the 2020 season should be brought to the Recreation Office prior to registration. You will not be allowed to register for the 2021 season if you have outstanding equipment.
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 League. Sometimes games will fall on a holiday 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!
