No previous cheer experience is required to join BYFC. Tumbling experience is not required though we do encourage all cheerleaders to participate either during season or off season tumbling classes to build strength, stamina and confidence. Competitive Cheer offers a focused practice schedule that starts in August and continues 2-3 days per week throughout the season.
