Burros Cheerleading - Program Information

Burros Cheerleading 

Welcome to The Mokena Youth Athletic Association 2024 Cheer Season! We hope to have your athlete as part of our program! The MYAA Cheerleading program is designed to have fun, focus on teamwork, and build the cheerleading skills that will take them to the next level. We are a Rec team, so everyone is welcome!

MYAA Cheerleaders will have the opportunity to choose to sideline only as an Illinois Junior Celtic cheerleader or the Competitive option (Which includes the sideline season) on the Mokena Burros Competitive Cheer Team - with the exception of our Kindergarten Cheerleaders who are sideline only in order to build the skills and fundamental elements needed to advance them to the next level of this sport.
