Our teams laugh, learn and grow in this self-esteem building program where we focus on improving the abilities of each participant in a fun and non-competitive environment. MU Cheer provides experienced & compensated coaching staff. Every cheer coach in our program goes through background checks, USA Cheer Safety & Risk Management training, as well as MU Cheer policy training before they begin each season! We want to ensure we provide a safe & fun environment for all of our cheerleaders!

The Classic Tackle Cheer program cheers for Millard United Sports Tackle Football teams - Mustangs, Patriots, Wildcats. The Classic Tackle Cheer program is similar to a High School Cheerleading Experience!
No tryouts or previous experience necessary.
