Frequently Asked Questions: 
1) How do I register my kid to cheer or myself to volunteer?  Look at the section below and send the required information to andy@mhflagfootball.com and submit payment.

2) How are the cheerleaders assigned to teams?  Once we fill all or most of our spots, I take the entire list in order of birthdays and cut it into 4 divisions.  Then, we make movements based on requests (for example, my daughter wants to be with her friend who is older). 

3) Will I get my requests?  Most likely.

4) Where can I find the YouTube videos of the games?  Go to our Facebook page (don't forget to like us)

5) What is Spirit Day?  We ask (not required though) the players and cheerleaders to wear their jerseys and uniforms to school on fridays to show their team spirit.

6) What will the players get?  In addition to the bow, hoodie, tshirt, top, skirt, briefs, each cheerleader will get a participation trophy and a team photo at the end of the year.

7) Where can I find lost items?  We collect a lot of lost and found each year and put it in a box next to the concessions on fields 1 & 2.  Please put your kid's name on water bottles, sweatshirts, etc.
