Viking Cheer Overview


Viking Cheerleading is a recreational league designed for anyone in grades K through 8th. The goal of this program is to provide a positive, healthy, safe and fun youth sport experience for all that participate from the Antioch, Lindenhurst, Lake Villa and Southeastern Wisconsin areas. All squad levels are determined by grade and experience. 

On an annual basis, the Viking Cheer Coaches attend Cheerleading Coach’s Clinics.  Each clinic discusses best practices for coaching cheerleading, reviews all aspects of cheer safety and demonstrates new techniques for stunts and routines that they can apply throughout the season. 

At games, cheerleaders bring a great deal of energy o the sidelines and promote crowd participation. They help bring spirit to the games
by cheering on the football players to victory. 


Each year they participate in at least two competitions. Our cheer program has a history of making it to IRCA state annually and placingm in the top 3!
