Wardle Family YMCA is introducing youth cheerleading for the first time ever. Boys and girls ages 4-10 are encouraged to participate in this exciting sport and registration is open until January 9, 2012. YMCA cheerleaders will perform at YMCA basketball games and will learn plenty of new cheers by Head Coach Tracy McMurray. The season will officially begin on January 16. The cost is $35 for Y members and $45 for non-members. There is also a mandatory $55 uniform fee for all participants. Uniform sizing is necessary for all participants and will take place on January 10 — immediately following program registration. All children involved in the program must attend in order to ensure proper fitting. To register, visit the YMCA at 1801 Richmond Ave. in Port Royal. If you have any questions concerning this or any other Y program, please call 843-522-9622 or visit our website at www.ymcabeaufortcounty.com.
