CHEER FAQs

WHEN CAN I SIGN UP FOR CHEERLEADING?

Registration opens mid-spring and will remain open until we confirm our season start date. Spots fill up fast, so make sure to register early.  Teams are formed in May and waitlists started once we have full squads.

PAPERWORK

All paperwork should be mailed to: WAYNE WILDCATS PO BOX 565 WAYNE PA 19087.

Do not upload to Teamsnap as we will not receive appropriately.

WHY IS MY CHILD’S REPORT CARD REQUIRED?

Pop Warner is the largest youth football and cheerleading organization in the world. From the vast experience gained from such a large organization, Pop Warner understands that sports are a supplement and enhancer to being successful in the classroom, therefore, Pop Warner places great emphasis on scholastics and annually recognizes excellence in the classroom with awards and scholarships, requiring submission of this information during the registration process.

WHY DO YOU NEED SO MUCH PAPERWORK?

Pop Warner has strict rules requiring such paperwork. Large amounts of paperwork are also required to promote safety and fair play. Verification of birth dates and geographical limitations of residency prevent organizations from recruiting and stacking their teams. The paperwork is very basic and necessary to create a fair environment to learn and enjoy football and cheerleading. According to league regulations, without complete paperwork, players are not able to begin practicing in August and may be removed from the team if too many practices are missed due to this reason.

WHAT IF MY CHILD WEARS EYEGLASSES?

Eyeglasses are fully acceptable but MUST be secured by a sports band that is not knotted or containing beads to ensure that they are safely held to the head.

HOW CAN I VOLUNTEER?

Volunteering is greatly appreciated and the program would not run smoothly without great parent volunteers. Please let the cheer coordinator(s) know of your interest to volunteer so tasks can be assigned. Also, keep an eye out for volunteers sign-ups emails and requests throughout the season. Volunteering for some portion of activities in a given season is required, but if you choose to opt out of volunteering, a fee will incur upon registration or at the season’s completion.

HOW CAN I VOLUNTEER TO COACH?

We are always looking for cheerleading head coaches and assistant coaches. If you or someone you know may be interested, please visit the coaches corner tab on this website.

Clearances and other paperwork will need to be up-to-date prior to the fall season.

WHEN DOES THE SEASON START?

Season starts on Aug 1.  All cheerleaders are required to participate fully.  August practice is 3-4 nights a week so the girls can learn routines and stunts.  Practices during the school year are set by coaches and generally 2-3 times per week in the evenings.
