Welcome to TWIN BORO CHEERLEADING! 

 

Twin Boro Cheer is open to Mendham and Chester students entering Grades 1 - 8 in Fall 2021.

Cheer is organized by grade level and runs from mid-August through early November.

Each squad has adult coaches who are Rutgers SAFETY certified.

We focus on inspiring camaraderie, developing teamwork, building confidence and creating friendship, but most importantly, having fun!

 

Registration will be opened in April & May for the 2021 Fall Season.

Games

- Cheerleaders cheer at Twin Boro football games on Friday nights or weekends in the fall. 

- Home games are played in Mendham or Chester; away games are played in nearby towns. 

- Game dates, times and locations are released at the end of August and are subject to change. 

- Grades 1 & 2 Cheerleaders will cheer for Flag Football, which has a less competitive, intramural structure. These games will likely be in the same location and time each week in the fall. Subject to change. 

- Consistent attendance at games is required. 

 

Attendance Policy

- Cheerleading is a team sport that requires consistent participation from every member. A cheerleader's absence from a practice or game negatively affects the team's ability to practice safely and inhibits the team from being able to perform their cheers, stunts or routines in an optimal fashion.

- Excessive absences will place your child at a disadvantage in learning the routine, cheers or stunts and could limit of her involvement in the halftime routine.   

 

Volunteer Opportunities

- Twin Boro Cheer has excellent volunteer opportunities for parents to get involved.

- Committees include Fundraising, Spirit Wear, Uniforms, Picture Day, and Camp Prep. 

- Available board positions include PR Co-Chair and Coaches for Grades 1, 5, & 6.
