Cheer Council

What is Cheer Council?

We currently coach kindergarten through 8th grade competitive cheerleading.  Our goal is to teach and build all the advanced skills necessary to be successful in high school cheerleading.  We are proud to say that 100% of the last 8th grade squad made their high school team.

K-2nd grade - 3 IRCA qualifying competitions

3rd-8th grade - 4 IRCA qualifying competitions

For questions or concerns, please contact: raiderscheer@bartlettraiders.org

What Registration Fees Include

  • Rental facility
  • Practice t-shirt
  • Cheer bow (2)
  • Cheer shoes
  • All competition fees

Every even year, a new uniform from Varsity athletics is designed for the cheer organization.  The uniform, bow and cheer shoes are the girls' to keep at the end of the season.  Uniform rental fees are not incurred.

Cheerleading practice follows a different schedule than football.  The cheer season officially begins mid-July and runs through the first full weekend of December.  The practice schedule is at the discretion and availability of the coaches.

In addition to performing at local competitions, Raiders cheerleaders are proud to support the boys on the field and cheer at regular season football games, playoff games, the superbowl.

Coach Jen

Hi! I am Coach Jen! During the day I am a forensic scientist and the Director of the IRS National Forensic Laboratory.  But, in my free time I enjoy volunteering and giving back to the community through coaching.  Having been a competitive athlete all my life, I strongly believe there are valuable life lessons in playing team sports.  I have taught and coached on-and-off over the past 18 years, to include the last five seasons for Bartlett Little League, and this being my third season with BRC.  We are a Raiders family - me, my husband a football coach, our son Michael a football player, and our daughters Kirsten and Adelyn the cheerleaders.  But it’s bigger than that with all of the amazing and supportive families we’ve met through Raiders - they’ve become our family too!
