Do I need my own equipment?
PAL provides cheerleaders with cheer bows, pom poms, and game uniform (long sleeves, vest, and skirt). You will need to provide socks, sneakers/cheer shoes, bloomers (returning cheerleaders).
Can parents attend the Citi Field Cheer & Dance night?
Yes, however you must purchase a game ticket in advance. Tickets at a discounted group rate will be available during the first week of practice in August. There is also the option to take the bus to the field with the team (additional fee). There are no refunds for tickets purchased. The PAL covers the cost of the game ticket for each cheerleader participating in the event.
What events do you cheer for?
Our teams cheer at each PAL football game, which take place on Sundays (and a few Saturday nights). Cheerleaders are expected to attend both home & away games. We also participate in clinics and charity events throughout the fall and winter.
How do I contact the coach?
Each team will have a Teamsnap account which will allow you to reach out to the coaches.
How do I get involved in the PAL Cheerleading Program?
PAL is always looking for volunteers to help promote and create a positive experience for the youth of West Orange. Volunteer options include but are not limited to coaching, game day support, field maintenance, public relations and fundraising.
