Typical Cheerleading Practice Schedule by age group: Flag(ages 5-6) Mitey Mites(ages 7-8) Tuesday and Thursday 6:00pm-7:30pm, PeeWee (ages 9-10), Jr. Varsity (ages 11-12) and Varsity (ages 13-14) Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00pm-8:00pm. Schedules may be adjusted by coaches as needed, but will not extend past 8:00pm.

All practices, games and some competitions are held outside. This means our athletes will be exposed to all Florida elements; this includes extreme heat, bugs, and rain. Coaches will assure that athletes receive adequate water breaks to combat dehydration; however this must start from home. Please review the dehydration and heat exhaustion material provided on this page.

Regular season games are on Saturdays in August and run through October. The games are played in order by age with the flag game starting at 9:00am. Athletes are required to report to the fields half time of the previous game. The exact times will be handed out at the start of the season.

During the first week of the season all teams will practice Monday-Friday 6:00pm-8:00pm, this is so we can complete our mandatory pre conditioning hours; these hours are required before the athletes are allowed to stunt.    

Only graded school functions and illness will be considered “Excused Absences” Coaches will attempt to accommodate open house, back to school/meet the teacher.

Cheerleading is a team sport and it is very important that all members of the team are at EVERY practice. Each cheerleader will be assigned a stunt group, if one girl is out it effects the entire group as those athletes can’t stunt. Missing athletes also make it difficult for out teams to practice formations as well as competition routines. Please keep this in mind when considering the Jr. Lions family.

All Jr. Lions athletes are required to maintain a 2.0 or higher GPA in order to participate. This will be checked randomly throughout the season. Cheerleaders that fall below a 2.0 GPA will not be eligible to participate in FYFCL or Jr. Lions. Grades will be checked via OCPS report cards as well as progress book. We will NOT except notes from teachers!!!! Any athlete that has not fallen below the 2.0 but is dangerously close will be placed on academic probation; this is our attempt to team up with the parents to insure academic success.

The following items must be submitted in order to sign your athlete up
·          Copy of athletes birth certificate
·          A physical dated 2018: We understand that some athletes have physicals that were completed in 2016 that are still current and insurance will not pay for another one, however this is a FYFCL requirement and we cannot make any acceptations, without a current 2017 physical your athlete CANNOT participate. Over the years we have had families visit CVS minute clinic and pay between $35.00-$60.00 for a sports physical. Also Lake Nona High School usually does a physical night at the H.S that physical is also excepted as long as it is done in 2018. A physical done in 2017 and re-stamped by a doctor in 2018 will NOT be accepted.
