Welcome to the 2023 Cheerleading Season

The Sycamore Youth Football & Cheer program is a recreational youth program geared for children entering 1st-8th grade. There are no try-outs or special requirements, any child may participate.  Our main goal is to introduce and teach the sport of cheer while building on the foundations of teamwork, responsibility, respect and sportsmanship.
