About: CGBFL Cheerleading is an extension of the youth football program to provide an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of cheerleading, learn leadership skills, and provide support to the football team. All children are welcome to participate and not required to be enrolled in the Center Grove School District. Listed below is more detailed information about the program and upcoming season for 2017. Updates and or changes will be posted in the Facebook Group, Center Grove Bantam Cheerleading. We highly recommend joining this group! 


Who: Kindergarten - 6th Grade

Cost: $95. This price includes your CGBFL registration, uniform top, uniform skirt, spanks, and poms which are all yours to keep at the end of the season. This also includes a Free Cheer Clinic provided by the Junior Trojan Cheerleaders prior to the season opening. A participation trophy is awarded at the end of the season along with free entry for your cheerleader into the CGHS Football Game on CGBFL Recognition Night. New this year is an opportunity to attend a dance clinic by the CGHS Dance Team and perform with them on Recognition Night for an additional cost. More information on this is listed below. 

Practice Schedule: Cheerleaders will practice 1-2 times per week at the discretion of the selected Cheer Coach. Dates and times will vary for each squad but no more than 1 hour in duration per practice. Once your child is placed on a squad, their Coach will be in contact to determine what days and times work for everyone. 

Game Schedule: Cheerleaders will participate in 1-2 football games per week. The game schedule will be distributed by your football team once finalized. CGBFL Cheerleading operates on a maximum of 3 events per week allowed. For example: If you only have 1 football game scheduled that week, squads will be allowed to practice twice. If you have two games scheduled that week, squads will only be allowed to practice once. 

Requests: CGBFL does accept requests for specific teams and squads. All requests must be emailed to mrsindianaus2012@yahoo.com with the following information. Cheerleaders Name, Specific Request (If you are requesting a football team: List the Football Players Name. Reminder: Cheerleaders ONLY cheer for the Minors & Majors. If your son or family member in on Flag or Rookie, your request can not be met.) (If your request is for your cheerleader to be placed on a squad with a friend please list that Cheerleaders name.) Requests are accepted NOT guaranteed. Requests are ONLY guaranteed when your request is combined with a parent/friend volunteering as Cheer Coach or a Cheer Coach is already in place for the squad/team you are requesting. Some circumstances do arise to where two parents are volunteering for the same squad/team. If that situation does arise, the request will be awarded on a first come first serve basis. Please note, it is impossible for us to meet all requests but we do try our best. Due to the large number of requests received, Cheerleaders will be placed on squads with a variety of ages. We will do our best to keep like aged cheerleaders together, however it is not guaranteed. 

Cheer Coaches: CGBFL is successful due to the amazing volunteers! We encourage you to volunteer as a Cheer Coach or split the duties with another Coach and team up. CGBFL provides you with all the support and information you need to create a successful, safe, fun squad! Coaching cheer is a rewarding experience and if you have any questions or concerns please contact us!
