Cheer and Dance Overview

The SFPAL 49ers Cheer and Dance team is supported by community volunteers, many alumnae of the program themselves, who serve 60 coed cheerleaders in the Western Addition. For each of the last eight years, the 49ers Dance teams have competed and won titles at the Pop Warner National Competition in Orlando, Florida. SFPAL 49ers is associated with Bay Area Pop Warner Youth Football and Cheer League and Pop Warner Nationals.

Cheer and Dance are available for girls and boys ages 5-11. While registration begins in March, the season does not officially start until August 1st.

The first day of practice for the 2024 Season is Thursday, August 1, 2024. Practices will occur on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 5:00PM-7:30PM. Practices will change the week after Labor Day to Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 5:00PM-7:00PM.

Cheer and Dance squads are not only actively cheering on their football teams weekly, but also take part in cheer and dance competitions all around the Bay Area!
