Winter Park Cheer and Dance

  • The Cheer and Dance Program offers teams a wide range of opportunity for young athletes at all skill levels: Novice, Intermediate and Advanced. 
  • Pop Warner has established one set of spirit rules along with JAMZ, the Pop Warner Education Development Partner and the original developer of the Youth Cheer and Dance Alliance (YCADA).  
  • Together with YCADA, Pop Warner is able to provide online educational courses for its coaches, administrators and judges on team skill levels for Cheer Teams (Core Cheer, Show Cheer PW 1-4) and for Dance Teams (Pom Performance, Theme Dance & Hip Hop). Pop Warner also offers additional competition opportunities in Sideline Performance Cheer.
  • With continued education, the Pop Warner Coaching Staff provides basic instruction, training and conditioning for both football games and competition.
  • Teams participate on the sidelines at football games for home and most away games through to the Pop Warner Super Bowl. In addition to Game Day, teams participate in qualifying spirit events (League and Region) through to a Pop Warner National Championship.
  • The Pop Warner National Cheer and Dance Championships (started in 1988) are now held in December located in ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Kissimmee, Florida

Fall 2020 Season

Our fall season begins August 1. We practice 3 days a week with a game on Saturday. Our exhibitions/competitions start in October and most teams have the opportunity to earn a chance to go to Nationals. There is no substitution for experience. It's your future, why settle for anything less than the best?
