Certified Better Sports for kidsGreensboro Parks and Recreation youth cheerleading program exists to create a positive environment for youth ages 5-12 to cheer during the football season by emphasizing each individual's right to participate, good sportsmanship,  promoting skill development, and fitness and well-being. Greensboro is nationally recognized as a Better Sports for Kids Program Provider by the National Alliance for Youth Sports

Our Philosophy

Although winning is important, we do not emphasize it as a priority. We measure success on the skills a player develops and the amount of fun the player is having. Emphasis is placed on safety, team work, skill development and fair play.
All Greensboro Parks and Recreation Athletic programs maintain a family friendly and sportsmanlike atmosphere. Review the codes of conduct for coaches, parents, and players. These guidelines extend to all who enter the playing and spectator areas.

Program Details

The youth Cheer program is organized and supervised by the Athletic Section at Recreation Centers that offer youth football during the fall; and youth basketball during the winter.  The Athletic Section may assign cheerleaders outside of their district to form teams.
