Competitive Cheerleading

The Junior Cougar cheer program offers the opportunity to athletes ages 5-12 to learn the fundamentals of competitive cheer and to do so in a safe, encouraging and fun environment.  Young athletes of all skill levels are encouraged to join. The Junior Cougar cheer coaches will provide basic instruction, training and conditioning for both sideline and competitive cheer.


SCJC will be hosting two (2) youth cheer teams providing the opportunity for athletes ages 5 through 12 to participate. Team participation age is determined the age of your child as of September 1st.  The freshman cheer team is comprised of 8 and 9 year olds. The JV cheer team consists of 10 to 12 year olds. In addition, we offer the opportunity to 5 to 7 year olds to participate as cheer mascots. Our cheer mascots will practice with our freshman team but on a limited practice schedule.
