Football Cheerleading

For questions regarding cheerleading, email: fbcheerinfo@napervillepomcheer.org or uniforms@napervillepomcheer.org.  Please include "NPC" in the subject line.

The program will cheer for St. Raphael Football www.il.8to18.com/straphaelfootball starting the first week of September until the end of October.  Girls may choose to cheer for their age appropriate school team or for a sibling/friend that plays St. Raphael football. Girls that cheer with an age appropriate school team will enjoy the advantage of cheering with their friends of a similar age. Girls that cheer for a St. Raphael sibling, support their brother and families spend more time together.  Sisters can request to be on the same squad.  Girls can also request to cheer for the newer travel football teams.  Girls entering 1st through 8th grade may cheer for any of the travel teams.

When school begins, we will practice one night a week starting Tuesday, August 15th.  Our main practice location will be at Players Indoor Sports Center, 1740 Quincy Avenue, Naperville on Tuesdays from 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.  Since we are a completely volunteer organization, practice times and locations are determined by the coaches and assistants.  Therefore, your practice location, day and time may vary depending on your squad assignment.  

The games are played on Saturdays anytime between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. and last approximately one hour.  Each team will have 1 or 2 night games, which are played during the week.  The locations for the games will be Ashbury Park, Prairie Elementary School, Nike Park, Knoch Park or Commissioner's Park. Night games will be at Commissioner's Park or Knoch Park.  The schedule is dependent on the number of football teams that are assembled and will be available in late August or early September.

NPC requires that all cheerleaders, parents and coaches treat all participants with courtesy and respect, while stressing safety and sportsmanship.

If any parent intentionally presents false information on the NPC registration form, the cheerleader will be immediately suspended and barred from all future participation in Naperville Pom and Cheer.
