CHEER WITH CHAMPIONS !
STARTING AUGUST 4, 2014
The Oak Grove Cheerleading program focuses on esteeming young girls with self-confidence, physical fitness and leadership qualities. OGAA Cheer offers girls the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of cheerleading including jumps, formations, basic tumbling and stunting in a safe, fun, family environment. Our coaches work with each girl, helping them learn proper posture, drills, and cheers. Our league allows four (4) squads that are broken down as follows: (Age is determined as of August 1st of the current season.)
Mascots (Ages 4-5) Mini Mites (Ages 6-8) Mighty Mites (Ages 9-10) Pee-Wees (Ages 11-12)
Last year was a year of firsts that we are extremely proud of, 1st place division wins for both our Mini Might and Pee Wee squads, 1st place over-all win in our division for our Pee-Wee squad, our first charitable community event and our first opportunity to cheer with a local high school in support of breast cancer awareness. This year, we plan to grow our community involvement, cheer again in support of breast cancer awareness and continue to raise the bar for our program on the field, in competition and in the community. We really want our cheerleaders to be young ladies that are known and regarded well and to be a very visible representation of the great things happening at OGAA. This year, also a first, Oak Grove will be hosting the East Wake Football League Cheer Competition which means greater visibility and an opportunity to really shine in the East Wake Football League.
