The Littlestown Elementary Cheer program offers girls age 5 through 12 the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of cheerleading. A cheerleader must be at least 5 years old and entering Kindergarten to register. They learn how to be part of a team and good sportsmanship. Cheerleading provides a strength-training and cardiovascular workout that keeps girls healthy and fit, as well as maintaining a positive attitude. LEFA abides by a strict Code of Conduct policy. Please click HERE to read the policy.

Cheerleaders are placed on teams and travel to games with their assigned football teams.       

Coaching Opportunities

We are always looking for parents/adult volunteers to help by coaching a cheer team.  We hope you will consider helping our LEFA Cheer Program by coaching or volunteering. If interested, please send an email to one of the directors provided above. Also, there is a section in the online registration program to volunteer/coach.

When and Where are Games?

Thunderbolts (Tackle) Cheer

There will be 8 regularly scheduled games during the fall season. All tackle football games are played on Saturday or Sunday. Junior Varsity games are played first and then the Varsity games are played directly after. Games are typically scheduled during the day at 1:00pm or Saturday evenings at 6:00pm. Games usually last about 1 1/2 hours. LEFA is a part of York Adams Elementary Football League (YAEFL) as such we play surrounding area teams.

Flag Cheer

Flag cheerleaders accompany the flag football teams. They usually have games on Saturdays starting at 10:00am. The games can be home (at the Littlestown practice fields) or away. 

When and Where are Practices?

Practices will start mid August. Tackle cheer teams practice at the ACES Gym. Flag cheer practices are held at ACES playground. Prior to the start of games, teams will practice 4 evenings a week from 6-8pm. Once games begin, teams practice Tuesdays & Thursdays evenings each week from 6-8pm.

Game Cancellations

Games are cancelled for lightning and/or flooded fields. Games are cancelled by coaches and directors. Your team director will contact you when a game is cancelled. Games that have played 2 full quarters will not be rescheduled. The final score stands.
