Derry Demon Cheerleaders
The Derry Demons Youth Football and Cheerleading program offers an amazing opportunity for children ages 5-18, to play a competitive sport (must turn 5 by July 31st).
Cut off age for all divisions is July 31, for the upcoming season.
Tiny Mites: A non-competitive team where you will learn your basic motions and cheers: Ages 5, 6, and 7.
Division 8: Ages 5, 6, 7 and 8
Division 10: Ages 7, 8, 9, 10
Division 12: Ages 9, 10, 11, 12
Division 18: Ages 14, 15, 16, 17, 18
All practices, games and cheer competitions are mandatory for each athlete. We want to make sure everyone understands joining a team is a huge time commitment for the athlete as well as the parents. Absences should be the exception.
All practices are held Monday through Thursday starting the last week of July at Hood Middle School (Buckley Field) till Labor Day. After Labor Day practices move inside and go down to 3 days a week till November.
Football games are held on Sundays throughout the season (at times conflicts occur and games could be moved to Saturdays). Our cheerleading teams are paired up with a football team to cheer for.
Each cheer team competes in 3 Invitational Competitions: The Season Premiere, The Cheer Explosion (this event is co-hosted by both the Derry Demons and the Windham Wolverines), and The Fall Classic. Each team will also have a chance to compete at a State Competition. If Division’s 8, 10, 12 and 18 qualify they may also compete at a Regional and National Competition.
