Mod Squad GoFundMe Campaign

Orchard Park Cheer Family and Friends,

Over the last eight years we have dedicated our time and effort to creating a winning cheer program at Orchard Park High School. With several championships including the first ever Section VI Large School Varsity Championship title, we have grown into a program that is widely respected throughout Western New York. We now find ourselves in a position to reach out for your help as we continue our mission to make OP cheer the very best program in Section VI. We have proposed the addition of Modified Cheerleading to the OPMS sports lineup, however, the Board is not able to approve us at this time.


In order to provide an outlet for our younger generation of Quaker cheerleaders to begin training to become state champions, we need you help in raising the necessary funds for a Modified Cheerleading coach. We are asking the community to help us self-fund the first year of this program to confirm to the district and Board that we are serious about the growth of OP Cheerleading and the safety of our athletes. 


Your donation will go directly to the startup of the modified program and any surplus funds will be directed toward the cost of uniforms or other necessary equipment. In order to allow enough time to form the program, we must raise $2194 by August 1, 2016.


The addition of a middle school team will not only increase school spirit and support for modified football, but help to develop our athletes at an earlier age and create a stronger Varsity program with an ultimate goal of becoming a State Champion team.


 We feel strongly that this expense is well worth the investment. Please consider taking the time to make a donation of support. We've said it before and will never be able to say it enough, Orchard Park Cheer does not exist without the support of our cheer family and we thank you so very much for continuing to back us.

*UPDATED Opening Tumbling Details

OPEN TUMBLING WILL NOW BE
SUNDAYS 12-1 beginning May 1!!
**No tumbling May 15 or May 29**

BUFFALO ENVY ALL STARS
2600 Hamburg Turnpike
Buffalo NY 14218

Cost is $7/girl per session! Please make a dedicated effort to attend on a regular basis. If less than 10 athletes attend, tumbling may be canceled or price may increase. This workout is open to any current 6-12 grade potential cheerleaders and all OP Cheer alumni!

Be aware that our tumbling standards are increasing.

JV cheer is looking for a standing back handspring and running back handspring with a goal of multiple back handsprings. These skills are not required to make the team, however you must show a strong desire to gain them.

Varsity cheer will be looking for SOLID jump back handsprings (required to make the varsity) and running passes ending in back tucks.  

Any questions contact the coaches here!
