Cary Pop Warner Football & Cheer


Cary Chargers offers a great Cheerleading opportunity for girls and boys from ages 5-17!  The Cary Chargers Cheerleading Program is comprised of student-athletes with excitement for cheerleading and spirit. 

New for 2022 Jr. Tiny Mite for ages 3 and 4.

We are excited about our new Jr. Tiny Mite Cheer division. This division is for 3 and 4 year olds.  They will practice one time a week starting September 1st. The season runs from September 1st - October 16th (local exhibition ends the season). The Jr. tiny mites will perform at home games during half time (TM or MM game). They will perform an exhibition routine at our local competition in October.  Practices can be 'mommy and me'. Bring your 3 and 4 year olds for some fun. This is a COED division open to girls and boys. The cost for this division includes your child's uniform and is $150.

Cheer & Dance Information

Each spirit squad is assigned to a football team and cheers at their games as well as compete in the local cheer & dance competition. Cheerleaders at the Mitey Mite level and above may advance to post-season competition, or be required to travel with their football team to post-season games.  If a team/squad advances to the Regional level, out-of-state travel will likely be required. Regional competition is currently held in November (likely the weekend before Thanksgiving).  National competition is held in Orlando, Florida at Universal Studios in December. Opportunities are provided for participants ages 5 – 16 (age as of July 31st)

Games start in late August through the end of October with Championship games to follow.  There will be a total of 9 games to allow for makeup games due to bad weather.  WE DO PRACTICE/PLAY ON LABOR DAY WEEKEND! PLEASE TRY TO PLAN ANY FAMILY VACATIONS ACCORDINGLY.
