Coaches Corner

All of our coaches are Volunteers that do their best to teach each cheerleader how to cheer and have some fun cheering at the football games.  We practice through the week and cheer on the weekends for the Football teams at ER.

 We look for passionate people, know the game, respect the game, and willing to give back to the kids. It starts with you in order to have a successful season.

Fall Cheerleading

Sign-ups open from July 1st-Aug 16th. 

Season is Sept- Nov

Participants in Cheer must be ages 5-14.

Fee for Cheerleading is $100.00 for new cheerleaders.  This includes cheer top, cheer bottoms, poms and insurance. 


The East Ridge Recreation Cheerleading program is for children 5 to 14 years old. Participants are divided into squads depending on the number of children who registered and ages.

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. 


Parents & Kids

Parents-Coaches-anyone with our teams, are not permitted to stand on the fence.  All specters at any of the youth football games must stay in the bleachers.  League rules prohibit anyone from running up and down the side lines at any time.

All children in the park are required to have a parent or guardian with them at all times. To prevent kids from getting hurt, lost, or tearing things up we ask everyone to work together to keep each other safe.
