The Apple Valley Rebels' youth cheer program provides opportunities for both sideline and competition cheer. Our cheer teams are open to student athletes ages 5 through 14 who are academically and physically fit for participation. League age is determined by their age as of July 31st.

Cheer Teams

Every cheerleader who participates in our program is required to make a full commitment to their team and their teammates. Participating in our program not only trains our youth for a future at high school level, but promotes sportsmanship, teamwork and high academic standards. Our cheer squads travel with their football team and perform in front of our fans during each game. In addition to cheering for our football teams, our cheer squads are also involved in competitive cheer competitions and clinics.

According to our Conference rules: "Cheerleaders will NOT be able to participate in competition if they miss more than 2 scheduled Conference games (or 8 quarters)."

First day of practice is on Monday, July 24th, 2017. Every cheerleader is required to complete 10 hours of conditioning at the start of the season. The first week of practice will be dedicated to conditioning, and will be Monday through Friday from 6-8pm. After conditioning has been completed, our cheer teams will only practice from Tuesday through Thursday from then on out.

Each chapter's game schedule is set by conference, and will not be available until the week of our first game!
