Pine Richland Youth Football and Cheerleading is part of the United Youth Football League. The United Youth Football League states that all organizations having 2 or more teams must redraft players and the start of each season. AFTER open registration is completed on May 31, 2021 and all coaches have been selected, all players will be drafted to a team for their respective age division. Players will be notified of their team selection via e-mail. Football players and cheerleaders from the same family will be

placed in the same color division.


If there are siblings with different last names. Please let Melissa Nicely know this PRIOR to May 31, 2021 at  .




Heat Conditioning

Heat conditioning will begin the week of July 19, 2021.  Coaches will reach out once teams are drafted for that weeks schedule.  Heat conditioning is not mandatory, however strongly encouraged.  



Practice starts on July 26, 2021. We have historically practiced 5 days per week,

Monday – Friday, 6 – 8 PM until school begins.

The expectation is for your child to fully participate in camp,

as we strive to develop the children for the season.

Therefore, we request that family vacations, etc.

be planned accordingly to avoid conflict with camp.


During the season, football practices are limited to 3 practices per week by league rules. Practice typically occurs 6-8 PM on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday,

subsequently adjusted as daylight diminishes during the fall season.

Players are REQUIRED to attend a minimum of 2 out 3 practices to be able to play on Saturday of the applicable week, but are encouraged to attend all practices to assure continuity and increase player development.


Football practice locations will include the football fields at

Richland Community Park and Santacroce Stadium.

As we get closer to practice, a detailed schedule will be provided.





Recreational Cheer:

Small team- girls entering 1st and 2nd grade

Middle team- girls entering 3rd and 4th grade

Big team- girls entering 5th, 6th, and 7th grade


Girls do not have to try out for a recreational squad.  Team placement for the recreational teams will be posted on the web site under the Cheer Section. 

Cheer teams will be determined after the football players have been drafted and assigned their teams so that siblings can be aligned.   The recreational teams will cheer at all football games with the expectation that the girls will remain at the games from beginning until end. 

Practice for recreational cheer teams starts on July 26, 2021  A detailed schedule will follow as soon as the football schedule is announced by the league.  

The first week of practice of recreational cheer teams is choreography camp week and it is mandatory that your child attend this week of practice to allow them to cheer in the half time routine at the opening day football game.  

Any absence during choreography week must be approved by the Cheer VP.  Once school begins, practice will be held Tues. and Thurs evenings until mid-September when recreational practice will cease.  

Cheerleading practices will take place at Richland Community Park,

unless otherwise specified by the VP of Cheerleading or the Secretary.

Additional fees and cost for cheerleaders only.

Anything that touches the skin falls under the

parents' responsibility as decided by the Board.


Competitive Cheer:

Competitive Cheer Squad groupings are yet to be determined.  More details to follow.


All registered cheerleaders are welcome to join our competitive teams.

** You DO NOT have to have tumbling skills to make the team.  

Practice for our competitive teams is mandatory.  The first day of competitive cheer practice is July 19th and is choreography week.  The girls will have their tumbling and stunting assessed, taught their routine and given their spots this week. 

Therefore, ALL MUST ATTEND choreography week to be on the team.

No exceptions.


****Please note*** Cheerleading is a team sport. When even one cheerleader is missing, it prevents the entire team from practicing stunts and running their routines correctly/safely. 


A detailed schedule will be posted as soon as the football schedule

is announced by the league.


Competitive cheer practice will likely run through the beginning of November.

**All girls on the competitive teams are required to fully participate in the recreational team that they are placed on as well or risk removal from the competitive team.  


Anyone who would like more information regarding recreational or competitive cheer should contact the Cheer VP, Megan Morgan at  .


We look forward to another successful year. 

Thank you for your attention to the registration information.
