The East Ridge Recreation Cheerleading program features some of the top squads in the TSYFL. The cheerleading is for children 5 to 14 years old. Participants are divided into squads depending on the number of children who registered. 

Practices will typically be held twice a week for about an hour. Squads will cheer each week at home or the away games of the East Ridge Football teams. If you have a football player in a certain age you may request to cheer for that team. The TSYFL football season runs from late August 
through mid- November and includes a preseason jamboree and post season Super Bowl.
