Capital City Ravens
A SC Midlands Youth Football & Cheer Squad
Lead the crowd with your Ravens spirit! Join a Capital City Ravens cheerleading squad and fall in love with this fun, popular sport. Our award-winning squads build self confidence, teach sportsmanship and create lasting friendships among the cheerleaders.
Our cheerleaders learn cheers, chants, jumps, dances and stunting – and will perform them all during football games.
We provide athletic opportunities for beginners to experience cheerleading.
• Tackle Cheerleading Squads for youth ages 7-12 years
Age standards to ensure a safe and positive environment, each cheerleader is placed in a division based on age. Our programs have no cutting of squads.
Child safety is our priority. Coaches, assistant coaches and any volunteers in direct contact with cheerleaders have completed a criminal background check and child abuse clearance.
Commitment Cheerleading requires a strong commitment to the program. Squads need every member present on a regular basis to perform their cheers, dances and especially stunts! The success of the program is driven by the level of support delivered by our coaches, players, parents, volunteers and the community.
