Arlington Cowboy Cheer is a sideline cheerleading program offered to the girls in the community. We look forward to building a great cheer program that will continue and grow through the years. Everyone’s help and ideas are welcome.
We want to make this a fun time for the girls, as well as a learning experience. We will teach the girls cheers, dances and stunts. Arlington Cowboy Cheer is for girls in grades 1-8. Our primary focus is teaching the fundamentals of cheerleading, sideline cheers, halftime routines and safety with stunts in preparation for junior high and high school cheer. Older squads may have an opportunity to participate in an optional competition.
For the 2017 season the 2nd - 8th grade teams will be getting new uniforms. Last year our supplier discontinued the uniforms we have had for the last few years. We are so excited for the new uniforms and think that the cheerleaders will look amazing in them! To ensure that all cheerleaders obtain their uniforms prior to the start of the season, we will be setting up dates for the vendor to size the girls. These dates will be BEFORE camp and announced with registration. This will allow the vendor to get each cheerleader her uniform as soon as possible.
If you register after June 1st there is a late registration fee of $30 plus any additional costs for a rush order of your uniform.

There is a Cheer Clinic June 19-21 from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm at Players U in Mount Prospect. The girls will have a great time learning dances and cheers that we perform at games all season. The girls also get first hand training in stunts. This is very important for all newcomers. Treats are given out each night.
On June 22, there will be a community service opportunity for the squads at Feed My Starving Children in Schaumburg. Please see the Feed My Starving Children site for age requirements.
Our girls walk in the 4th of July parade. This is a fun time for all. We toss out candy and cheer our hearts out!
Along with the regular cheer season we have many exciting things for team bonding.
- Homecoming - FUN! FUN! FUN!
- Performance Day
- Cheer Off
- Banquet - Food, Dancing and Trophies - the end of the season celebration for the girls on a job well done!
This year we would like to get corporate sponsors and donations. If any parents know of any companies that would like to sponsor us please let me know. Fundraising will be a big part of our program to help it keep running.
Since we are a 100% Volunteer run group, we also need to enlist in the help of our parents. Each team must have at least one Cheer parent (Team Admin), 2 per squad is ideal. You will work directly with the Directors and your squad. You will help run the games, be a leader and support role for the girls. We are looking for POSITIVE & OPEN MINDED mothers and fathers to help fill these positions. Please let us know if you would like an official role in the club. It is a very fun and rewarding time for all!
We have several other positions that we need volunteers for: Team Admin, Cheer Admin, 4th of July Committee, Homecoming, Picture Day Committee, Banquet Committee, Apparel Committee, Fundraising Committee
We look forward to a great season and are excited to have many new girls in our program!!! If you have any questions please let us know.
