Be part of something special and join our cheerleading family. Milford offers a cheerleading program for children 5-15 years old. Our participants learn not sideline cheers, dance, stunting, tumbling and Competition routines and gain friendships with their teammates. All our participants have the chance to learn cheer and compete with the chance of moving on to Regionals, then Nationals in December. Milford has competed at the national level many times in the last ten years. We have 3 National Championship wins!

Our coaches are certified by YCADA (Youth Cheer and Dance Alliance) and participate in Spirit’s Coaches Clinic. Three coaches from every competitive roster attend the New England Coaches Clinic held once a year throughout New England. Each team roster has a coach certified in CPR training.

The youngest Teams, the Tiny and Mitey Mites, practice between 6-8 hours a week from August 1st until Labor Day. Practices are held between 5:30-8:30pm and are in/outdoors. They are shortened due to our participants age (and attention span!). We make practices fun with a focus on teaching side line cheers and learning a competitive routine.
