On behalf of the Cheer Program, we would like to welcome all new and returning cheerleaders and their families to the 2019 Season!
We are proud to announce that Fairfield Youth Cheer is part of the Southern Connecticut Pop Warner League. SCPW is a non-profit league that has been in existence for over 50 years. The mission of all Pop Warner organizations is,
"To enable children to benefit from participation in team sports and activities in a safe and structured environment. Through this active participation, our program teaches fundamental values, skills and knowledge that children will use throughout their lives”.
Fairfield is proud to carry on this tradition with our cheerleaders!
Cheerleading is a huge commitment that requires a lot of spirit and dedication from both cheerleaders and parents.
Please remember our entire league is run by volunteers; there are no paid positions within our Organization.
