About Our Cheerleading Program
The Missouri Wolverines Youth Cheerleading Club is part of the Missouri Wolverines Youth Organization Inc.
Our cheer club is headed up by Cheerleading Director Kari Thorn. We offer youth cheerleading for athletes in Kindergarten thru 8th Grade (ages 5 thru 14). We cheer at home football games for our Missouri Wolverines Football Club and cheer in competitions both locally and regionally.
Our outdoor practices are held at Englewood Park in Kansas City Missouri. We also have our own indoor facility, Kansas City Athlete Training Facility which will utilize as the weather turns cold. We practice twice a week during the pre-season and regular season however will add practices to prepare before competitions.
If you are interested in joining our club, we are accepting new registrations.
Cheerleading is a sport! It's a hard sport. It takes dedication, building skills, and teamwork to be a successful squad. We will practice jumps such as: herkies, pikes, and toe touches. Our legs must be straight, our toes must be pointed, and a smile on our face at all times! Along with jumps, we practice stunting. Our bases, backs, and flyers each have a goal depending on the position. If the cheerleaders do their jobs, the stunts hit their marks and just when you think you've had enough we challenge our cheerleaders to do a little more. We continue to learn cheers, chants, and arm motions. We continue yelling our words and hitting each motion. Our coaches expect the cheerleaders to be louder, faster, and sharper with each passing practice. Our cheerleaders are working hard. We show off our talents and our skills we have perfected to our family, our team, and the crowd. But what makes it all worth while is seeing the crowd get rowdy! The team get excited! And our parent, family, players, football coaches, and friends recognize our hard work and dedication!
Still Undecided? Before you and your child commit to for a full season, see if cheerleading is right for your child. The Missouri Wolverines highly recommend Kansas City Youth Cheer Camp. The camp is a great opportunity for new cheerleaders to see if they like cheering in a fun, 4 night camp. The camp is affordable and allows parents to attend and watch. The camp is also great for experienced cheerleaders as well looking to get ready for the upcoming season.
