Where are games played?

Home games are played at Rocky Fork Park. We also travel to the surrounding TNYFL communities for away games. For directions to other TNYFL field sites, please refer to the TNYFL field locations page.

How are squads chosen?

We have several criteria for squad placement.

Our first goal is to place siblings (cheer/football) on the same team. For example, if you son plays, your daugther will cheer for his team unless you specify otherwise.

Secondly, we strive to place girls on squads with girls of similar age and for a football team of similar age. We often get requests for friends to be placed together. We make every effort to make this happen.

***Special Requests beyond siblings are not guaranteed, especially if it means squads do not have enough girls to cheer for a team. Please be understanding if we are not able to meet your special request.***

Is there an entry fee to watch games?

All regular season games have no admission charge.

Pre-season games (Jamboree and other bowl games) typically charge $3 - $5 per person. All money collected goes to offset the cost of officials. Cheerleaders and football players do not pay these entry fees.

Any practices cancelled due to weather will be sent via email and/or text message.

Why are volunteers important?

NYA Cheerleading is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. No person involved with this organization is paid any monies for the efforts they put into the group. As a volunteer organization, the success or failure is measured in the expertise and passion of our parents and friends.

Volunteering in your child's youth sport program will be one of the most rewarding times of your life.
