Welcome to the Belleville Little Devils Cheer Program!
Our program aims to prepare our participants for a future both on and off the sidelines, through implementation of our C.H.E.E.R.S. (Commitment, Heart, Encouragement, Enthusiasm, Respect, and Sportsmanship) philosophy. Our focus is on establishing the fundamentals of youth cheerleading in order to allow our athletes to grow with a strong foundation, while providing a fun, educational, and structured environment.
As a coach, I am dedicated to preparing these young athletes to perform to the best of their abilities, and to have a whole lot of fun along the way! My goal is to provide your athletes with the tools needed to progress in their cheer career, beyond just the Belleville Little Devils Organization.
Over the course of the season, our athletes learn various sideline cheers, several crowd and halftime cheers, and a dance routine or two. Our cheerleaders are also given the opportunity to compete in cheer competitions throughout the season, and we are looking at expanding this option into the off-season.
Our cheerleaders are crucial to the positivity, excitement, and spirit of the Belleville Little Devils football program. Fans, players, and coaches alike all enjoy the encouragement and support provided by our cheerleaders throughout the course of the season.
Cheer practices are typically Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6:00pm - 8:00pm, Saturdays from 10:00am - 12:00pm and Sundays from 1:00pm - 3:00pm. Once games begin in late August, cheerleaders will typically only practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Practice schedules will be posted and updated on the SportsPlus App. Practice schedules may be adjusted at the discretion of the head coach or in anticipation of an extreme weather event. Please download the SportsPlus App, as explained in the Communications section below, after completing registration to stay up to date on all announcements or schedule changes. The SportsPlus App will use the same log-in & password you used to register your athlete.
Practice is located at the Belleville Little Devils field, in Citizens Park.

· Practice and Game Schedules
· Important Dates (i.e., Equipment issue & Turn-in Dates, Tri-County Weigh in, etc.)
· Special Events (Fundraising, Parent Meetings, Award Ceremonies, etc.)

This app also provides parents the opportunity to communicate directly to their coaches and other team parents through the Chat Function and direct messaging.
