  • Uniforms: Your child will be provided with a game uniform, bow, and poms. They will be given a pink breast cancer awareness bow for our October games, to raise breast cancer awareness. Children may keep the bows, but the rest of the uniform is on loan from WWFC and should be treated as such.

    • Uniforms need to be returned at the end of each season. Families are responsible for replacing uniforms costing approximately $350 if lost, not returned or damaged (torn, bleached, altered without permission)

    • Families are responsible for keeping uniforms clean and in good condition. Uniforms can be hand washed and air dried, or machine washed on the gentle cycle - DO NOT PUT IN DRYER OR IRON.

    • Uniforms are the property of Wayland Weston Youth Football and Cheer and are NOT to be worn and used outside of league sponsored functions (i.e. Halloween, school etc.). Please ask your child to be extremely careful when eating and drinking while in uniform.

  • How Can I Get Involved: We are rebuilding the cheer program this year and can use all the support we can get. Please consider volunteering your time even if you can’t make every practice or game. This is going to be a team effort. No cheerleading experience needed.
