Please join our Facebook page to keep up to date on all WYB Cheer events, and to see the WYB Cheer videos you can practice along with.  We will send emails occasionally, but Facebook will be our main communication tool.  We will also update the WYB Cheer website for important announcements, but we higly recommed you join the Facebook page to stay updated.  The Facebook page is private to protect the safety our children in the program.  We require that you provide your child's name when you request to join the group so that we can verify you should have access to the group.


Cheer practice is every Thursday from 6-7pm from August 3-October 19. Please go to the same area each week for your squad practices. Parents, you will pick them up from that same area at 7pm. If it is raining at 5:45pm, we will have Cheer Practice in the gym and cafeteria of Granby Elementary School (located behind McCord Middle School at 1490 Hard Road). 



Please pick up your child at 7pm each Thursday. If you are running late, please text your child to let them know.  The child can tell the coach you are running late. The coaches can not go home until all participants have been picked up by their parents or guardians. The coaches need to get home to their families, so please be considerate and pick up your child at 7pm each week. 


There is now a Port-a-John at McCord Football field and it can be used during our 6-7pm Cheer practices on Thursdays.




If you miss a Cheer practice, you can use the videos on this Facebook page to learn and practice those cheers at home. We suggest you make friends with those on your cheer squad and find out from them what cheers were worked on at the practice you missed.

Wear comfortable clothing and comfortable shoes for practice.  No pom-poms are needed for practice.  Bring a bottle of water with your name marked on it.
