2017 Minnesota Vikings Junior Cheerleaders

The Minnesota Vikings Junior Cheerleaders (JR MVC) program is designed specifically to promote self-esteem, pride, hard work and FUN among young women ages 3 - 14 years of age. This program offers a special opportunity to perform during a professional production in front of 66,655 Minnesota Vikings fans at the U.S. Bank Stadium.  Junior MVC will attend rehearsal sessions, where they will learn: warm ups, stretches, dance skills and choreography from the 2016 Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders.  Participants are divided into small groups by their age and work closely with their "big sister" MVC. No tryouts are required! This program is tailored to girls of all ages and ability levels. 

HURRY! Limited space is available.

PROGRAM DETAILS:

• Performers must be 3 - 14 years of age to participate. Different levels of participation are offered based on age groups.

“ANGEL” Cheerleaders:

• Performer’s age 3 – 5 years old will be in our Junior “Angels” group.

• Angels must be 3 years of age by July 1, 2017 – NO EXCEPTIONS! 

• Must be potty trained and able to separate from parents to work with the group instructor(s).

• Junior Angels will attend rehearsals, as noted, in a shortened capacity.  They will participate in a similar fashion to the Junior MVC, but will not have as long of rehearsals and will not learn as much choreography. At that age, we feel coming to learn a shorter routine/combo, wearing the uniform, getting their photo taken and performing at the game with the MVC in a simple capacity allows the younger siblings and future Junior MVC the chance to experience what Junior MVC will be like, but at a level that is fun for them, and not too over-whelming.  Junior Angels will be grouped together and have “MVC Leaders” to direct them at all times.  They will be the cutest ones on the field!

“Junior” Cheerleaders:

• Performers age 6 – 14 will be in our Junior Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders group.

• Junior Cheerleaders must be 6 years of age by July 1, 2017!!!

Register with a friend! Or make new ones!
