Cheer is unlike any other youth team sport which requires a huge commitment from the participant as well as the parents. Cheer Squads require knowledgeable and well conditioned participants for the entire squad to succeed. If your child is not participating in practices, they will not be effective in the team environment.
Cheer Squads are assigned to a Tackle team which have games on Saturday's. Palos Verdes Youth Football & Cheer's home fields for games are either at Palos Verdes or Peninsula High Schools. Although our home fields are local, Palos Verdes Youth Football & Cheer is part of the Southern California Conference of Pop Warner and requires our Cheer Squads with the tackle teams to travel to other city sites including, but not limited to, Los Angeles, Westside (Santa Monica), Santa Clarita, Culver City, Carson, etc. to play opponents in their respective divisions. Game times are normally scheduled from youngest teams playing earliest (8:00am or 9:00am) and the oldest finishing out the day. Note: Most teams arrive at least one hour prior to game start to warm up and do run through.
Our Flag Squad, the youngest Cheer participants in or program have reduced practice time and days due to the age of the participants. This squad is scheduled to cheer for the Cub division Flag team(s) (ages 6-7). Like the upper division squads, our Cub level competes with the other cities in our Conference and may require our team(s)/squads to travel to an offsite location.
