Plainfield Saints Youth Football and Cheer

Plainfield Saints Youth Cheer


The Plainfield Saints Cheer program offers instruction and competitive cheer levels for ages 5 to 16.
No tryouts are required. Our goal is to teach safety and fundamentals in a fun and educational environment. As a proud member of Pop Warner Little Scholars, we also focus on academics requiring our cheer athletes to excel in the classroom before permitting them to participate on the field. The academic standards that have been set give our athletes a sense of responsibility and an appreciation of academics and athletics that will help them develop later on in life.

All Plainfield Saints Cheer Coaches are certified through Pop Warner. Together with Youth Cheer and Dance Alliance (YCADA), Pop Warner is able to provide online educational courses for its coaches, administrators and judges for all cheer levels

Practices and Games

Practices begin on/after August 1 and are Monday through Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. through Labor Day.
After Labor Day practices will be three times a week. Schedule to be determined by individual coaches.
Practices are held at various Plainfield school locations, and may be inside or outside depending on the weather. 

Cheer teams participate on the sidelines for 8 to 10 home and away football games beginning the last weekend of August. The schedule is created by Pop Warner and the first few games will be available mid-August.
Our home games are at Plainfield Central High School.

Cheer practice and game schedules are subject to change and will be communicated by coaches. 

Competitions and Exhibitions

The Saints Cheer teams will participate in at least 2-3 Exhibitions/Competitions depending on the division/squad. 
Tiny Mites and Mitey Mites will participate in the Princess Gala. 
All squads will participate at the conference and regional competitions. Squads at the competitive level have the chance to qualify for Nationals in Orlando, FL. 
Those advancing past the regional level will be responsible for funding any associated competition, travel and accessory costs.
