The landscape of MYF and MYC continues to evolve to meet the needs of our players, parents, and community. The sole purpose of Madison Youth Football and Cheer is to provide the local community of Madison, CT with organized, adult-supervised, healthy youth football and cheerleading programs. To that end, we promote three foundational principals as reflected in our new logo:
Character: Strong individual character makes strong teams;
Team: Individual commitment to a group effort’ forges lasting relationships and produces better and more consistent results, and;
Community: Instilling a sense of community beyond football/cheer provides greater self-awareness and a broader perspective.

Eligible athletes: Grade 4 through 8:
Competition Cheer: This is competitive cheer team that continues to teach the fundamentals of the sport of cheerleading and build more advance skills and and techniques. Cheerleaders that wish to participate should complete one year of Sideline Cheer. These athletes will cheer sidelines and perform a halftime routine during the home games each week throughout the MYFC Regular Season as well as the Playoff and Championship games.
Practice hours and games are mandatory.
Cheerleaders will attend a 4 day sleep away camp
Competition is a larger commitment with practice schedules and involves an increased commitment.
In addition to sideline cheering this team will compete in multiple competitions during the season (both in and out of state - which may also include a competition in Orlando, Florida in December). Also, important to note that once the competition season starts the practice schedules will vary based on gym availability for use of mats. Additional practices will be added as we get closer to each competition.
