GENERAL INFORMATION TACKLE CHEERLEADING & POM

Broken Arrow Youth Football Association, Inc. established in 1984, is a member of the Indian Nations Football Conference. The Cheerleading & Pom program is offered to all youth in the 1st through 7th grades. You do not have to live in the Broken Arrow School District to participate in BAYFA Cheerleading & Pom.

Early registration begins March 1, 2017 ($105.00). Deadline for early registration is April 30, 2017. Regular registration ($140.00) begins May 1, 2017 and end June16, 2017. To register, click on the registration tab.

There are NO try-outs. Everyone who completes the registration process will participate on a cheer/pom squad at their grade level. Every squad will cheer for a BAYFA football team (of the Directors choosing).  Games are played on Saturdays beginning the last week of August and continue through the 2nd week of November.  Each team will be required to travel to scheduled away games of their assigned team.

Some of the squads choose to continue after the football season ends and enter local and/or in some cases (depending upon the age) national cheerleading/dance competitions after the football season. Your child must cheer the football season in order to be eligible to participate during the competitive portion of the season. Please keep in mind that there are more costs involved when preparing for and entering cheer/dance competitions.

Practices for the cheer/pom season, to include the tackle season and competitive season, will begin around July 3rd and continue until the last football game or competition whichever ends first.

We will be keeping the same uniform we purchased last year.  So if your child’s uniform still fits, he/she will only need to be fitted for new shoes and camp wear.  We will also be offering our buy back program this season for the pieces they have outgrown.
