The goal of the Round Lake Spartan Cheerleading program is to introduce the fundamentals of the sport while creating a safe and positive experience that is organized and fun. The focus of the instruction will be on sportsmanship, team work, and responsibility.
Each of our squads is instructed by a team of volunteer coaches. These coaches donate several hours throughout the course of the year, concentrating on constructing routines and cheers for each of the squads while continually promoting good sportsmanship, teamwork and responsibility.
Spartan coaches are required to attend regular meetings in order to be kept up-to-date on the events and activities of the organization.
This is a non-competitive cheer program. Practice will take place twice a week and game schedules will be given once TCYFL announces the game schedule for the 2019 season. Each girl will be provided with a uniform. Parents are responsible for purchasing white shoes for game day.
Participation is based on grade level and number of participants. These squads will perform at all pre-season, regular and playoff football games.
