Program that will include 100% parent participation with their young athlete. Parental involvement will be required in every drill, and parents will be required to wear a mask, while cheerleaders will not. Staff will focus on fundamentals of the sport that parents and young athletes can work on together and are taking this approach to reduce the amount of contact participants have with one another.

“We brought back the P.L.A.Y. cheerleading program last year and the participants had a lot of fun,” said Recreation Program Specialist and Instructor Andrea Cuccaro. “I was part of a cheerleading team as a young kid and enjoy having the opportunity to lead this program in Citrus County”.
