ZYFL Cheer is a recreational cheer program offered to Zionsville children who will be entering K through 6th grades in the Fall. Cheerleaders will learn the fundamentals of cheer, including chants, half-time and time-out cheers, a pom/dance routine and partner stunts. They support the ZYFL Recreational Football Teams throughout the Fall Season. Our program emphasizes Teamwork, Spirit and Fun!

The season consists of participating in summer camp, practicing weekly, performing at the Jamboree and cheering at your assigned game every weekend (times will vary). There may be additional opportunities for performances during the season. For example, we have cheered during a Colts game day experience, performed at Eagle Fest and participated in the Fall Parade.

We offer unlimited enrollment with no tryouts and divide the cheerleaders into squads based on age. Depending on the number enrolled, there may be more than one squad per age group. Participants may request placement on the same cheer squad as a friend (limit one request per registrant) and every attempt is made to honor the requests; however, we cannot guarantee fulfillment.

We are excited for a great upcoming season!



Summer Camp will be the week of July 8. Check back soon for dates!

Important Note: 4th – 6th Grade Cheer Camp is mandatory. We will be spending one day of camp hosting a Varsity UCA Home Camp. The cheerleaders will learn stunting, sideline cheers and chants, jumping technique and other game-day material from UCA Instructors. The remainder of the week will be spent learning the pom routine. Specific times and locations will be announced soon.


Practices are held one or two days per week. Coaches will determine practice days and times. The practice days will be announced as soon as possible after teams are assigned.
