Welcome to Herndon Optimist Youth Cheerleading (HOYC)! HOYC is a recreational/development program for children 5 - 15 years old. The program provides a rewarding and fun experience with an emphasis on both teamwork and individual accomplishment. Cheerleading requires stamina, concentration and regular practice as a team. Throughout the season, your child will learn cheerleading fundamentals, sportsmanship, leadership and teamwork appropriate for each age level. HOYC is more than just cheering at football games - it's an opportunity to give your children the foundation for leadership, sportsmanship and teamwork. Visit the "About Us" link to learn more about HOYC and what we have to offer!
Regular season games begin in mid-September and end in late October. Playoff and championship games are complete by mid-November. For additional details on an event (e.g., location, time, what to wear/bring), please visit our "Events Calendar" and click on the event name.
If you have any other questions, please use the "Feedback" option on the left side menu and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
