WSPW is a sideline cheerleading program as well as a competition program,
and all cheerleading squads will

cheer for their respective football team at regular and post-season
games. The regular season runs from August 1 through late October, with
games being held on Saturdays beginning at the end of August.  The game
schedule will be available in late July, prior to the start of the season.  
Additionally, cheer teams will cheer for their respective football teams at ALL 
postseason games. 

As we move into September, we will begin to work on competition
preparation where the focus is on tumbling, stunting and dance and all other
elements for our competition routines. Our teams

will compete in the Mid Florida Cheer Competition held at the end of
October. Teams placing 1st and 2nd will advance to the Southeast
Regional competition, which is held during Thanksgiving weekend. Any
teams advancing past regionals (placing 1st or 2nd) will have the option of
competing at the Pop Warner National Competition in December.  Additionally, 
our cheer teams will perform at the Kaleigh Ottis Memorial Cheer

We will also be offering a Spring Competition Team, which will begin practice 
in January, 2023 and will attend two competitions in April.  We do not cheer at football games during the spring.  The spring season is January 17th  through April 22nd. 

Each Cheer Family will receive a Parent/Cheerleader packet at the first practice,
which will contain more detailed information and expectations for the 2023
season. Please continue to check the website for more updates as well.
We look forward to welcoming returning and new members to the Winter
Springs Bears Family.  GO BEARS!
