Everett Timberwolves Youth Cheer

Our mission at Everett Timberwolves Youth Cheer is to provide a well-rounded cheerleading program by developing athletes who demonstrate leadership, teamwork, character, and a strong desire for excellence through the 5 main aspects of cheerleading which are; cheers and chants, movement to music, and choreography, motions including jumps and kicks, stunting and tumbling.

2022 Timberwolves Cheer

Everett Timberwolves Youth Cheer is open to ages 5-14 Grades K-8

We offer a full season of sideline cheer in support of our Everett Timberwolves Youth Football teams.

The Jamboree is an event that is very important to attend.

Jamboree occurs usually on the last weekend in August.

It is our first opportunity to cheer in uniform for our teams, work out any quirks we have with formations, uniforms, expectations etc. and get the first-game wiggles out!

Other Important Information:

Saturday Game Schedule usually comes out a week before the 1st game so please be patient.

Labor Day weekend and Monday (Labor Day) are days off.

We participate in sideline cheer through the football schedule which consists of 7-8 regular season games. We will have the opportunity to advance to 1 playoff game and 1 championship game along with the teams. We consider the season to consist of up to 10 weekends of games, as part of our schedule, so plan accordingly.


Q: When does registration open?

A: March 1st for returning and March 15th for New Members

Q: What age does my child have to be to participate in Youth Cheer?

A: Timberwolves Cheer is open to ages 5-14.

Q: Does my child need to attend a particular school, or feed a particular high school to participate?

A: No. This program is open to all kids in the community with an interest in cheerleading.

Q: Do only girls cheer?

A: No! We love boys and girls learning cheerleading together. We have uniforms that fit all athletes who want to participate, and we will do our best to make everyone feel welcome!

Q: Will my Child be cheering with kids his or her own age?

A: We will have 1 cheer squad this year consisting of all ages and skills!

Q: I have a son playing football. Will my daughter be cheering for his team?

A: We schedule our game days to be able to cheer for as many teams as possible throughout the season and therefore are unable to guarantee that your cheerleader will be cheering for any specific team on game day.

Q: When do practices begin?

A: Practices begin in early August and will be announced when fields schedules are created and secured.

Q: What is the practice schedule?

A: Beginning in August there will be mandatory practices, dates and times TBD. That usually looks something like Monday-Thursday. After Labor Day, mandatory practice will shift to twice a week, approximately 2 hours per practice, and Pep Squad may be once a week depending on coaches and team size.

Q: How long does the season run?

A: Our season starts in August and wraps up the second week of November at the end-of-season awards night/banquet.

Q: When are the games?

A: All regular season games are on Saturdays. Due to many variables we aren’t able to provide a set game schedule at the start of the season, but our aim is to notify you of schedules as soon as we have confirmation from the league for game times and field locations. Plan for every Saturday in our season to be filled with Family, fun, football, Cheer, and friends!


Q: I don’t have any cheer experience, but I typically make myself available to participate in my kids activities. Do you have a role for me in this program?

A: YES! We love parent participation. This program is built solely on volunteers. We need head coaches, assistant coaches, team moms and dads! We will train and support any adult that is willing to help make this program a success! Don’t be shy, just let us know you'd like to help!


Q: I have already registered my child for another fall sport. Can my daughter still participate in cheer? 

A: The time commitment required to complete the Everett Timberwolves Recreational Youth Cheer season safely and with integrity is not conducive to participation in most other fall sports. For the safety of every member of each squad, Cheerleaders will be expected to attend all practices and Saturday games, which other sport schedules will likely conflict with. In the event you’d like to fit cheer in with another sport, we encourage you to join the Pep Squad and know you may be asked to limit participation for safety reasons. Please always reach out with questions, let's chat.

Q: We have a lot going on, what happens if we miss some practices or games? 

A. Cheerleading specifically requires progression of skills, and formations for routines and stunting, and these skills cannot be skipped over, and formations cannot be altered easily – changes required due to absences for other fall sports, birthday parties and family vacations, become a physical risk to all involved. If you register your child for cheer, it will be expected that she commits fully to this sport and this program for the duration of the season. We may ask you to have your child wait on the side during a particular portion of a game, chant, or routine, or sit out from a stunt if she is not illustrating safe skills. When participants miss games, that puts teammates in a predicament where they are restricted from displaying their hard work, and also practicing what they've learned during the week. We require advanced warning for all scheduled absences so we may adjust skills and formations.

Q: What will my son or daughter be wearing?

A: Traditional and up to date styled cheer uniforms will be provided. This consists of a skirt with briefs or skort, a shell with long sleeved liners or similar modular uniform layers, pom poms, and bows. You will provide cheer shoes, usually all-white and socks. Specific details will be issued each season.

About Our Coaches

My name is Elizabeth McGuire & I am proud to be the Director of Cheer for the Everett Timberwolves Family. I come with a vast knowledge of the many cheer elements as well as safe skill progression. At two years old, my mother enrolled me in gymnastics and the rest was history until about age 15 when I retired from competing and started my coaching venture. In addition to being the T-Wolve Cheer Program Director, I am also the mother of a Jr. Timberwolf and am the current Head Cheer Coach at Everett High School. My core values include sprit of caring, integrity & community. I am committed to progressing all levels of athletes, while creating lifelong memories in an inclusive & safely structured environment.

With my Co-Coach Kaycie Kunz beside me, your cheerleader will have a structured practice two days per week where we will teach cheers & chants, dance & game day routines, stunting, and last but certainly not least, basic tumbling. All practiced and learned skills will be shown on Game Days throughout the season & we cannot wait!

Coach Kaycie and I value all feedback. Parents and athletes alike, please do not hesitate to provide us with opportunities to grow and learn alongside you. We believe by utilizing our knowledge in addition to feedback, this program will flourish and provide all involved with memories that will last forever.
