Thank you for your interest in Palm Beach Gardens Pop Warner Cheer. The mission statement of Pop Warner Little Scholars is to enable young people to benefit from participation in team sports and activities in a safe and structured environment. Through this active participation, Pop Warner programs teach fundamental values, skills and knowledge that young people will use throughout their lives.
The 2019 Pop Warner Cheer season will begin on August 1, 2019. The season runs from August 1 until the middle of October.
As we look to rebuild our cheer program for the 2019 season we will be offering Tiny Mite cheer ages 5 – 7 only. The birth date cut off is July 31st. All children who are or who are turning 5, 6 and 7 by July 31st are welcome.
Cheer teams will start practicing August 1st. The first week of practice is our conditioning practice and is 5 nights the first week. Once conditioning is complete the practice schedule may go to 3 nights per week. The practice schedule will be provided by your Head Coach. The team will cheer at 8 season football games played on Saturdays and will perform an exhibition routine at the Treasure Coast Pop Warner cheer and dance competition in October at Martin County High School. Approximately half of the football games will be played at the home field in Palm Beach Gardens and the other half will be away games within the Treasure Coast area.
Registration Fees: As a non-profit recreational program it takes a lot of funding to run a single season of Pop Warner cheerleading. Some of that cost is carried by our phenomenal sponsors, but the majority comes from registration fees and fundraising. The registration fee of $225 covers the fees required to participate in Pop Warner and also provides the use of a uniform for the season. In addition, cheerleaders will be given a practice shirt, a game bow and an Exhibition performance bow. **All families must plan to purchase a pair of specific shoes for practice, games and exhibition and the bloomers for under the uniform skirt. A registration packet will be provided listing all additional items.**
Fundraising: Families will be expected to participate in at least one fundraiser for the season. Fundraisers will be discussed as a team by your rostered Team Parent.
Volunteers: This is a volunteer led organization. Each year we depend on volunteers to join us and become coaches for our teams. In the past few seasons the amount of volunteers have declined which is why the number of teams we are able to offer has also declined. The program is seeking a cheer coordinator to oversee the cheer program as well as additional coaching staff to grow our program. This season the Pop Warner League cheer and dance commissioner will over see our program while we work to find the right volunteer to take on the role of cheer coordinator. We are hoping by having the one tiny mite team this season that this will encourage more interest for the next season so we may offer other divisions. We are always looking for new coaches who can contribute their time and cheerleading experience to the program as well as Team parents and a program coordinator to help keep it all running smoothly! Want to become a volunteer? Contact Crystal Mullins, Treasure Coast Pop Warner Cheer and Dance Commissioner: [email protected]
All of our coaches must go through a Pop Warner certification clinic held in July. In addition, all Pop Warner volunteers must submit to a background check in order to assist our participants!
Registration paperwork will be sent to you once you have registered in our database with a checklist and due date of submission.

If inclement weather is forecasted for the Palm Beach Gardens area on a practice day, the Head Coaches will make a determination by 4pm about whether practice will continue, and if so, where practice will occur.
We are often able to use the Palm Beach Gardens Recreation Center indoor gymnasium located at 4404 Burns Rd, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410.
When your coach makes a determination they will relay the information to team families.
The coaches are always permitted to cancel or re-schedule practice if needed without the approval of the Cheer President.
