Welcome to the Home of Herndon Optimist Youth Cheerleading!
Herndon Optimist Youth Cheerleading (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 open to boys and girls, ages 5-15 as of October 1 of each year. HOYC cheerleaders support a Herndon Optimist Youth Football (HOYF) team throughout the season by cheering for them at games and participating in the HOYF Pep Rally. The cheerleaders are also able to participate in optional events such as: performing at a Herndon High School football game, participating in the Herndon High School Homecoming Parade, and demonstrating technique and dance at Performance Day with other Fairfax County Cheer Squads.
WE ARE SAD TO REPORT THERE WILL NOT BE A FALL 2018 SEASON BECAUSE THERE WAS NO ONE WHO VOLUNTEERED TO TAKE OVER AS HOYC COMMISSIONER.
