Lake Zurich's Only Youth Cheerleading Program

The Lake Zurich Flames offers a Fall Cheerleading program that gives athletes a chance to march in the Alpine Fest parade, cheer to fans at football games, and compete in state-wide competitions. Our Spring Cheerleading program is a competition only season that focuses entirely on competition routines. Both programs build physical skills, performance skills and incredible friendships.

Our Kindergarten program is the perfect beginning to learn sideline and halftime cheers, perform at football games, and experience what cheerleading is all about. While our youth squads, for athletes in grades 1-8, provides more intense training in choreography, stunting and tumbling. 

The kids, coaches and parents make this program an incredible experience. Explore each of our programs using the links to the left, and please feel free to contact me with any questions. We'd love to have your child join us!
