Torrance Pop Warner’s cheer program is designed to inspire our athletes (ages 5 -14) by teaching them the important values of dedication, teamwork, friendship, leadership and good sportsmanship. We encourage all our athletes to meet each new task with a positive attitude, as well as to believe and trust in themselves and each other.

Our goal is to teach our cheerleaders how to support one another and to encourage their teammates through positive reinforcement and mutual respect for their team, their coaches, and TYFC.

TYFC strives to make Cheerleading a FUN, learning experience with lessons that follow them far beyond the spirit of cheering. Each squad is designed to work as a team representing their fellow football players during the games and to demonstrate their athletic abilities on the field and during competitions. Coaches and volunteers are dedicated individuals who enjoy working with and teaching these young girls.


We kick off the season on August 1st. Flag Cheer will end with a local competition held at the end of October or through the beginning of November depending on bowl games.

Competitive teams, Mitey-Mite, Jr. Pee Wee, Pee Wee, Jr. Varsity, and Varsity will cheer at games through the beginning of November and may then continue with a local and regional competition season through the end of January.

Your registration fees contribute to the following costs: fees for use of the schools, fields, and parks for practices and games, game day custodians, referees, field lights, snack bar staffing, uniforms, Southern California Conference fees, game day onsite EMTs, picture package, insurance, cheer accessories, cheer competition, equipment reconditioning, and new equipment purchases. 

We also heavily rely on fundraising efforts to support our Torrance Pop Warner football and cheer association. Without these funds our organization would not be able to exist.

Q.  How do I register my child?
A. Easy! Click on the "Registration" tab and follow the instructions.

Q.  Do the cheerleaders compete in cheer competitions?
A. Cheerleading is not just about the games. Our girls not only practice hard to be there for their fellow TYFC football players and families, but they are also ramping up and preparing for their biggest day of the season…The West Coast Conference Cheer and Dance Competition!!!!

The Cheerleading competition is a very exciting and worthwhile experience for our girls.  Not only do they showcase to their family and friends the culmination of all their hard work during the cheer season, but they also compete against girls their own age and skill level.  Many parents are simply amazed at how much their child has grown and learned during the season.

Watching the girls during the competitions will make you realize what talented, dedicated, and hard-working individuals each one of them are.  Their spirit and energy are truly contagious!

Q.  Do the cheerleaders have to do fundraising?
A.  Fundraising is an important component that helps support the TYFC association and minimize costs of cheer competitions. 

A league-wide fundraiser for all cheerleaders and football players is held at the beginning of the season. 

All other fundraisers will be determined at each squad level in order to provide financial relief for families associated with travel expenses, or other needs as determined by the squad, coaches and parents.
