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.
Madison Youth Cheer
Eligible athletes: Grades K through 8:
Sideline Cheer (Non-Compete): This is a non-compete cheer team that teaches the fundamentals of the sport of cheerleading without the commitment of competition for any athlete in grades 3-8. Practices are during the week and games are on Sunday. 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.
Tiger Cub Cheer & Mascots: This will be offered new this year to grades K-2 (Athlete must be 5 by 7/31/20). This will consist of new athletes and the introduction to the basic fundamentals of the sport of cheer. Practices will be held once a week for 6 weeks and the cheerleaders will be invited to cheer at one home MYF game in October (Date TBD) and possibly cheer at some of the Flag Football Games.
