2015 Registration is now open!
Register Cheerleaders in the same manner you register football players. All participants will be contacted by email with specific time and location information. Practice schedules will be determined by each coach however practices will typically take place daily until school begins, then twice a week in the evenings until games begin, moving to once a week based on team readiness. We will be cheering for our Arlington Youth Football Club teams. Games will begin in September and most games are on Saturdays with an occasional exception. Arlington Youth Football Club is part of the Fairfax County Youth Football League and games will be in held in the Northern Virginia area. Please note that at this time this is a recreational cheer program geared towards instruction and mastery of cheerleading skills to include motions, jumps, basic stunting as well as the overall health and fitness goals associated with any other sports programs.
Arlington Cheerleading has a need for experienced and knowledgeable cheer coaches. Whether you want to be a Head Coach, Assistant Coach, part-time coaching volunteer, or a parent who wants to help out, we are interested in talking to you. All coaches will be required to pass a background check. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS! If you have a desire to coach cheerleading or be involved in the sport of cheerleading, even if you have no previous experience please contact Dani Seltzer 703-963-1814 or
