Games are typically played on Sundays, but in the past we have had a few Saturday games. Our home games are played at North Middlesex Regional High School.

How do I register my child?
There will be a link on the front page of our website for online registration- everyone must register online. Your child must also be fitted for uniform, sneakers and warm-up suit (if re-using your 2014 warm-up please bring them to the fitting to be approved)

How much does it cost?
The registration fee is $120 and includes the bow. The warm-up fee is $50 for the jacket and $30 for the pants. The warm up is optional ONLY if your 2017 warm-up suit is approved by the Cheer Director. We also have included (2) $20 fantasy football raffle tickets in our registration.
So, for a brand new cheerleader the total cost is $240 – this includes everything required for the season.

What are my Fundraising and volunteer commitments?
Everyone must participate in fundraising. There is a mandatory canvassing day (TBA) and there will be a fantasy football raffle. Parents must also spend time volunteering – On game day there are many spots to fill – concessions, 50/50 raffle, MPR’s etc. More information will be available as the games get closer. Each team also needs a team parent – please contact your coach for information on becoming a team parent.
