2022 Falcons Cheerleading

The Durham / Middlefield Falcons Cheerleading program is an age/grade based cheer program for children aged 5 - 14 yrs old and in grades K - 8th, living in Durham, Middlefield, Rockfall, Middletown, and Wallingford. Our squads cheer at all of our Sunday football games during the season, and compete in 1-2 competitions.

During the season, participants will work on proper cheer technique, spirit, jumps, tumbling, dance and stunting. Our program focuses on building a strong sense of community and teamwork between the different level squads. Through our focus on safety, fun, and teamwork, we help our athletes develop team bonds, confidence, and cheer skills. The cheer registration fee for the season is $155.00 (Additional participants in the same family are discounted to $100.00)

There will be a uniform fitting at the start of our season.  Our program provides the uniform skirt, vest, and warm-up jacket for our athletes to use, and must be returned at the end of the season. Our program provides the team bow and socks to our athletes at no extra charge, and can be kept at the end of the season. Additional uniform components that are required (and must be purchased by the athletes) are: white turtleneck bodysuit, black boy-cut bloomers, and white cheer sneakers. As a courtesy to our families, we will size the girls for any components they may need, and make one program order from a cheer gear supplier. Should you need to purchase all 3 items, it will cost about $45.00 total.

Registration and physician forms can be downloaded in the FORMS tab. All new children to the program will need a copy of their birth certificate. Returning children do not need a new copy of their birth certificate, as we keep them on file. If you have any questions, please contact:
