Why Pop Warner Cheer

Garner Pop Warner offers cheer teams for athletes ages 5 – 15. Athletes will be placed on teams based on age, experience, and number of participants. Consideration is given to athletes who have siblings playing football as to team placement. THERE ARE NO TRYOUTS! Teams must have a minimum of 5 athletes to be a rostered team.

Online registration is open from March 15 until July 31. You don’t want to wait until the deadline because physicals are required for participation. (See requirements below.) For all early registrations, there is a payment plan that allows payments to be spread out until mid-July.

Cost of participation is $185. The participation fee includes briefs (spanks), white crop top (for under the uniform), and 2 cheer bows. Athletes will need to purchase their own solid white cheer shoes. Uniforms are provided by Garner Pop Warner and will need to be returned at the end of the season.

Practices will begin this year on Tuesday, August 1, 2023.    ALL PRACTICES ARE MANDATORY!

Athletes will practice Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights from 6:00-8:30 the first 2 weeks to get required conditioning hours completed. After the first two weeks each coach will set up a practice schedule for their team. Usually, younger teams will practice twice a week and older teams will practice 3 times a week. Times may be shortened as well.

Practices will be held at Thompson Road field, South Garner Park, or the Garner Civitan Building. 1 or 2 practices may be held at a local gym or school as we get closer to competition date.

Our coaches and volunteers complete required YCADA training each year. Most are CPR certified and have first aid training. All volunteers are background checked. We are always looking for volunteers!!! If you are interested in joining our program as a coach, assistant coach, team mom, or student trainer (age 16-18), please complete the registration.
