A TYFA year is split into 2 seasons. Spring is for fun and Fall is very competitive. Each is mutually exclusive of the other. TYFA cheerleaders cheer for football games and then (in the Fall only) have a State Cheer Competition with the highest scoring squad going to a national event. In the Cheer Program there are 6 eligible age brackets all of which may compete.

  • Mascots (3-4 year olds)
  • Flag (4-5 year olds)
  • Tykes (6-7 year olds)
  • Rookies (8-9 year olds)
  • Juniors (10-11 year olds)
  • Seniors (12-15 year olds)

Cheer is available for both Boys and Girls with no discrimination against their size or weight. In the Fall, prior to the football playoffs starting, a massive State Cheer Competition is held. Squads are broken down in the competition:

  • Mascot
  • Novice
  • Intermediate
  • Advanced

Each of these is further broken down by Large squad and Small squad. In addition to squad size, each of these is broken down by the age brackets above and a ”Mixed" bracket can be added. Single and Tandem competitions are also available.
