Cheer With Champions 2017
Welcome to The Oak Grove Athletic Association Cheerleading program.
The OGAA cheer 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 and basic tumbling in a safe, fun, family environment. Our coaches work with each girl, helping them learn proper posture, drills, and cheers. Our league allows for 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)
Each year we try to expand and improve our squad, our citizenship and visibility in our community. In past years, we’ve secured 1st place division wins for both our Mini Mite and Pee Wee squads, 1st place over-all win in our division for our Pee Wee squad, participated in our first charitable community event, enjoyed our first opportunity to cheer with a local high school in support of breast cancer awareness and hosted the East Wake Cheer Competition. In 2017, 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 the regsirtation fee will be $40 for Mascots and $60 for Mini Mites, Mighty Mites and Pee Wees. This registration fee secures a roster spot for the fall season. There will be an additional fee for cheer gear(uniform and accessories due in June). The cheer gear fee must be paid in full by July 31st.
There are eight (8) weeks of regular season games in September and October. There are three (3) potential playoff games that would be played in November. Game start times are listed below.
Fifth Quarter (Mascots) – 4:00 pm
Mini Mites – approximately 4:30 pm after the completion of the Fifth Quarter game
Mighty Mites – approximately 5:30 pm after the completion of the Mini Mites game

**Cheerleaders are expected to be at the field in uniform 30 minutes before the start of the game in which they will be cheering.
Our organization is 100% volunteer operated so parents are expected to participate in the success of the program by assisting with banner and spirit stick preparation, fundraising projects, snack responsibilities, gate and concessions throughout the season. With 100% parental participation, everyone gets to see and support their child(ren) during their performance.
The OGAA Football and Cheer Programs are a part of the East Wake Football League and are subject to all of the rules that govern said league. Please see http://www.ewfl-football.com/ for all league information, including the schedule for the current season.
