Welcome to P.L.A.Y. Cheer

As a rapidly growing sport, we currently offer two program options: Sideline Cheer and Competitive Cheer each with different commitment levels.  To learn more about each of these programs, see below or click on tabs above. 
Sideline Cheer | No Tryout | Pre-K - 8th Grade
Our Sideline Cheer program is a fun, inclusive, non-competitive (in-house) cheer program.  Participants cheer on grade level (or combined grade level) squads from pre-K through 8th grade.  Athletes will develop and improve fundamental cheer skills, cheer for our P.L.A.Y. youth football teams,  share their Laker Pride and make new friends!  Registration takes place each May for the fall season. 
Commitment level: Low
Season: August through mid October
Competitive Cheer | Tryout to Roster | 2nd Grade - 8th Grade
Our competitive cheer program is a tryout-based group of rostered teams that compete a 2 minute 30 second routine (2:30) at local competitions.   Our 2:30 teams practice twice a week (+additional practice dates, including some Saturdays) and compete at 4-5 local competitions in their respective divisions as well as at the Minnesota State Cheer Competition in late January. 
Commitment level: High
Season: June - February 1
