About Cheer

UpdatedFriday April 15, 2022 byNSYFCA.

“Cheer has been so important to my daughter this year.   We were new to town and naturally she was a little nervous to begin the school year, but having the season start before school did was a wonderful way for her to make new friends.  All the events have been so much fun for her and our entire family.  The coaches and parents have been wonderful.  I am so thankful for the Northborough/Southborough cheer organization.  We will definitely miss everyone when the season ends, but will surely be back next year!”
