Minnesota Vikings Junior Cheerleaders

JR MVC Registration for 2015 is now FULL!!! Check back in spring 2016 to join us next year!

The Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders Junior Cheerleader (JR MVC) program is designed specifically to promote self-esteem, pride, commitment and FUN among young women ages 3 - 14 years old. This program offers a rare and special opportunity to perform during a professional production in front of thousands of Minnesota Vikings fans at the University of Minnesota Football Stadium.  Junior MVC will attend rehearsal sessions were they will learn warm ups, stretches, dance skills and choreography from the 2015 Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders.  Junior MVC will participate in clinics taught by the team and will have the opportunity to be involved in our “healthy habit” discussions. 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.

PROGRAM DETAILS:

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

Junior ANGELS -

• Performers age 3 – 5 will be in our Junior Angels group.

• Angels must be 3 years of age by July  1, 2015 –

• 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.

• Juniors must be 6 years of age by July 1, 2015!!!

** Register with a friend!   Or make new ones!
