NRC Cheer Squad
Flag Football Squad: August 22nd – October 24th

The NRC Cheer Squad is designed to give young participants the opportunity to cheer and perform at NRC sports functions and to represent NRC when cheering is scheduled. It will be a high energy, team-based squad emphasizing athleticism, sportsmanship, hard work, and confidence. There will be two sessions, Flag Football Cheer and Basketball Cheer.

During the Flag Football Cheer, participants will be expected to attend practices and cheer for six of the 4th-6th grade Flag Football games (one game each week/6 games total). In addition to cheering at games, participants will have the opportunity to perform at the halftime of at least two games. Participants will learn what it is to be a part of a cheerleading squad. They will learn the fundamentals of cheering, jumps, tumbling, and stunting. Participants will also learn spirit building techniques, game day cheering, crowd involvement, and most of all confidence. This is a great opportunity for anyone, at any skill level, to join and learn about cheerleading. Those with experience will get the chance to strengthen and build their skills.
