Registration opens May 1st
Welcome to the home of North Andover Booster Club Cheerleading. The NABC Cheerleading Program is open to children
entering grades K-8 in the Fall of 2023
Please note: Each team will be capped based on league rules (varies per age groups) In the event that a team fills, you will be notified and placed on a waitlist. If we have enough children AND a coach we will have an additional team.
The NABC Cheerleading program is open to all children who will be in grades K-8 in the fall of 2023 who live in North Andover or attend school in North Andover. Our program aims to teach the fundamentals of cheer through stunting, jumping, dancing and cheering. We belong on the Massachusetts Youth Cheer Alliance (MYCA) and cheer each weekend at either a tackle football game or a flag football game. Our goal is to teach good sportsmanship, team work and commitment to the athletes in our program. Most importantly to HAVE FUN!
The number of teams we have is based on the number of participants enrolled. Cheerleaders are placed on teams based on grade level. There are NO try outs for grades K-4. In the event that we have a large number of children in grades 5 through 8 there may be an evaluation in August to determine teams. Our teams are as follows:
Non-Competitive Recreational Mascots- K and 1st grade: This team is open to cheerleaders in grades K and 1 and will practice one night a week and cheer and tackle and flag football games throughout the season. No competitions
E Team - 1st and 2nd grade: This team is open to cheerleaders in grades 1 and 2. This team practices two times per week, cheers at tackle and flag football games and competes at 3 competitions

Depending on your child’s team, parents will need to purchase additional personal uniform items. This can include cheerleading sneakers, body suit, and bloomers. If your cheerleader’s previous apparel still fits you will not need to purchase these items. Purchases will be run through an online webstore.
Cheerleading Top and Bottom as well as pompoms will be issued to each cheerleader. Uniforms are the property of the NABC and must be returned cleaned at the end of the year. If a uniform is not returned or damaged, families will be responsible for the full cost of the uniform.
Each cheerleader and family will be asked to participate in fundraising to support the NABC Cheer program. Our fundraising goal is necessary to help purchase equipment, music, and provide the team with a fun banquet at the end of the year. We have had great success in previous years with fundraising which has allowed us to keep registration costs low!
Parent volunteers are needed in the following areas: Adult Coaches, team moms (managing the communication for each squad), fundraising, information gathering (paperwork), banquet, and MYCA competition. If you are interested in taking an active role in the team this year- please send an e-mail to the co-commissioners.
Any additional questions please email Commissioners Brielle Keroack at email@example.com
