1. At what age can my daughter cheer for the GridIron League?
GridIron League Cheer is for girls ages 5-12 (as of September 1st).
2. How are the GridIron cheerleading squads formed?
The GridIron League is a zoned league. The cheerleading squads will be made of girls that live in the same high school zone per Fort Bend ISD and LCISD — just as the GridIron Football teams are formed.
Freshman (Ages 5-6), Junior Varsity (Ages 7-9), Varsity (Ages 10-12)
A cheerleader may “cheer up” or “cheer down” one level only. This exception will be made strictly for siblings in order to allow for sisters to cheer for their brother’s team. For example, a 6-year-old cheerleader may “cheer up” for the junior varsity football team if her brother is on that team.
Note: The League reserves the right to make adjustments in squads to balance numbers where necessary.
3. How much is the cheerleading registration fee, and what does GridIron provide?
The registration fee is $300 per cheerleader. The GridIron League will provide a 5-day cheerleading training camp. (See below for more information.) Each cheerleader will receive a uniform, which includes a shell, skirt, bloomers/briefs, hair bow, pompoms, and Camp T-shirt. In addition, each cheerleader will receive a “cheer bucket” to be decorated. Cheerleaders will provide their own shoes and socks.
4. Will there be a cheer camp, and is this included in the price of the registration?
GridIron will provide a cheer camp for all cheerleaders at Victory Sports in Sugar Land. This camp is included in the cost of your registration. Each girl will attend for five days (Monday through Friday) for three hours each day. At camp, the girls will learn cheers, dances, stunts and cheerleading basics. Last year, we had the younger girls attend in the morning session (9-noon) and the older girls attend the afternoon session (1-4). This schedule worked out very well, and we plan to follow the same schedule this year. Camp is scheduled for the week of July 22nd. We ask that you plan your vacations around this week, if possible. This is the time that the girls will learn the material for the season, dances and cheers. It is important that your daughter be there to learn this material.

During the regular season, squads will have a total of three “activities” per week. Activities include practice and games.
6. Will the squads participate in cheerleading competitions?
At this time, the squads will only cheer recreationally for games. Competitions may be added in the future.

8. What is the Refund Policy?
Full refund will be given, less a processing fee, up until uniforms have been ordered. After uniforms have been ordered, the cost of the uniform will be deducted from the refund.
