Welcome to Herndon Optimist Youth Cheerleading (HOYC)! We are excited to start the Fall season and hope to see many returning cheerleaders as well as some new faces! 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!
