We Are vikings

Winthrop Viking Youth Cheer is a team organization designed for children in K through 8th grade. Participants must be 5 years old by September 1st. There is no experience required and there are no tryouts to make the squad. All that is required is enthusiasm, spirit, and regular practice to master cheers and chants, and to build on teamwork. Cheerleading offers young athletes a chance to learn cheerleading skills involving motions, jumps, stunting, tumbling, and dance—possibly to pursue high school cheerleading. Squads are organized by grade and skill level to ensure team compatibility, safety and skill development. Cheerleading is an athletic sport, involving strength for stunting, and stamina while you jump, cheer and dance. The goal of WVYC is to offer quality cheer instruction to youth athletes and work towards building a strong and dynamic youth program that will be long lasting and provide a foundation for upcoming Winthrop youth interested in cheerleading.

Mission Statement

The Winthrop Viking Youth Cheer (WVYC) program was created to work in conjunction with the Winthrop Youth Football program. WVYC’s goal is for our children to learn the fundamentals of cheer, sportsmanship and teamwork. The board and coaches of WVYC will work together to ensure all children are given the opportunity participate in cheer in a safe and fun environment. We will work together with Winthrop High School Cheer to create a feeder program, graduating athletes from our program ready to compete and succeed at the next level.
