We need dependable, dedicated ladies to help us make this season the best ever! 

2016 Cheerleading Registration:  MAY 2, 2016 -JULY 15, 2016 


The Newton County Recreation Commission Cheer Program is offered to girls, ages 5-12. This program institutes the fundamentals of the sport while teaching participants new techniques, cheers and chants as well as basic tumbling and stunts.  Our Cheer program is a stepping stone for those wishing to pursue the sport in Middle School. 

Our cheerleaders cheer for our Football Program from September to late October.  Practice will begin in August. Teams are allowed to practice two times during the week and once on the weekends.

Trophies are awarded to 1st & 2nd place football teams in each division at the end of the season. Cheerleaders on a 1st or 2nd place winning team will also receive a trophy along with the football team.

Age Control Date: August 1st, of the current year.

  • The Recreation Department reserves the right to change/adjust the above leagues by age as needed to complete teams
  • Girls may move up to an older division to cheer with an older sibling but will not be permitted to cheer down to a younger division
