Provide your contact information via the button below to receive Junior Cheer updates!

The Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders Junior Cheer program is designed specifically to promote confidence, hard work, leadership and FUN among young women 3 - 14 years of age. This program offers a special opportunity to perform during a professional production in front of Minnesota Vikings fans at U.S. Bank Stadium. 

Junior/Angel Cheerleaders will attend rehearsal sessions where they will learn: warm ups, stretches, cheers, and dance choreography from the 2022 Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders. Character-building themes will be introduced daily to help promote self-esteem and pride amongst our juniors. 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.

The 2022 Junior Cheer camp will consist of two practices, dress rehearsal and a Vikings Game Day pre-game performance, centerfield at U.S. Bank Stadium. Limited space is available and registration will close by end of day July 20, 2022.

Program Details:

  • Performers must be 3 - 14 years of age to participate
  • Different levels of participation are offered based on age groups
  • Angel Cheerleaders (ages 3-5)
  • Junior Cheerleaders (ages 6-14)
  • Game day tickets will NEED TO BE purchased in addition to the program fee. Tickets are available through the ticket office at a discounted price of $20 per tickets. EVERYONE – Junior + at least 1 parent/guardian must have a ticket to the game in order to participate

"ANGEL" Cheerleaders:

  • Performer's age 3 – 5 years old will be in our "Angel" Cheerleaders group
  • There is a limit of 100 "angel" cheerleaders for this year's camp
  • Angels must be 3 years of age by August 1, 2022 – NO EXCEPTIONS!
  • Must be potty trained and able to separate from parents to work with the group instructor(s)
  • Angel Cheerleaders will participate the exact same way Junior Cheerleaders do. The only difference between the two is their age and that Angels will have some shortened rehearsal times (pickup is at 8:00pm)
  • Angel Cheerleaders will attend all rehearsals, as noted, in a shortened capacity. 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 confidence-building. 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" Cheerleaders group

Tickets:

To participate, you must purchase or have game tickets - both the performer and the chaperone! EVERYONE will need to acquire his or her game ticket separately from the program registration. Each dancer will need a chaperone/parent/guardian with them on game day. Both the performer and the chaperone will need to a ticket to enter the stadium – tickets are not included in the Junior Cheer Registration fee. You can also purchase additional tickets for your family and friends. We have blocked seats in the upper deck at a discounted rate. You are free to find other tickets in the stadium, in other locations, if you prefer. Place orders for your Junior MVC, chaperone and guests all at once if you want them to be seated together in the stands. Please place all orders through the ticket office directly. Again, these are not included with your Junior Cheer registration. TICKETS are a separate price from the junior cheer participation fee. A junior will not be able to perform on game day if they do not have a ticket for both themselves and a parent/guardian.
