CF Youth Cheerleading offers girls ages 5 to 12 the opportunity to learn the basics of Cheerleading from experienced former and current Cheerleaders. Girls are divided into squads which attend CF Youth Football games and cheer for the CF team. Games are played both home and away, and accommodations are made to ensure that girls will cheer at games involving their siblings, if necessary. CFCA Cheerleaders also get the opportunity to cheer at halftime of a CF Varsity game with the CF Football Cheerleaders. All equipment and uniforms are provided. The fee for Cheerleading is $55. A $50 uniform deposit will be collected when uniforms are handed out, which is returned when uniforms are returned.

Youth Football (Flag & Tackle)
CF Youth Football offers Flag and Tackle football for children ages 5 to 12 years old (players age determined by their age on November 1, 2014). CF sponsors two teams in each of the following four age brackets / programs:
Flag Football: 5-7 year olds. Players wear flags hanging off belts around their waists, and ball carriers are ‘tackled’ by their opponent pulling off a flag. Players learn the basic skills of offense and defense, and learn simple plays and techniques. 7 year olds may play either Flag or Tackle football, usually determined by their size and experience.
Tackle Football: Players wear full football equipment, and participate in ‘full contact’ football. Players are divided by age into 3 age divisions: 8 and under, 10 and under, and 12 and under. Teams playing in the tackle divisions play by the same set of rules as school ‘modified’ programs play by, with a few additional rules included for safety, and to speed up games. All tackle levels have weight limits for ball carriers, and the younger levels have weight limits for all players. Games are played each Sunday in September and October, and CF teams play against teams from other local areas such as Windsor, Whitney Point, Endwell, Maine, and other districts to the west. Equipment and uniforms are provided. Players must provide their own cleats (if desired) and other personal protection.
The fee for all levels of tackle football is $80. There is a required equipment deposit of $150, which is collected at the time that equipment is handed out. The fee for flag football is $50. Questions? Contact Jaime Allen, 648-5122.
Football & Cheerleading Volunteers
The CFCA Football and Cheerleading program commissioners and committee members are always looking for the help of individuals who are willing to volunteer their time and talents. Running these programs is too much for one person to do. There is a wide variety of tasks that need to be done to make our programs successful and enjoyable for our kids and spectators. All who wish to help are welcome, there are many jobs to be done throughout the entire season. Interested in helping? Please call Jaime Allen (648-5122) for Football , or Comfort Mallery
(204-0949) for Cheerleading.
Free/Reduced Lunch Program: The CFCA offers reduced fees for those participants that qualify for free or reduced school lunches. This policy helps insure that qualifying families have the opportunity for children to participate in our programs. Due to recent concerns regarding this policy, the CFCA will now require proof of qualification for the free/reduced lunch program. The letter received from the school will be adequate, and the form only needs to be shown at the time of sign-up. If you qualify, but have lost your letter, you can get a replacement by contacting the school food service department.
The reduced fee for Tackle Football is $40, Flag Football is $25, Cheerleading is $25.
