Fall 2024 Program

To All Cheerleaders and Parents,

Welcome to the Darien Junior Cheerleading League (DJCL) Fall 2024 Season.  Our league give girls the opportunity to learn age appropriate cheerleading skills while gaining an understanding of teamwork and community spirit.  The program serves as a foundation for cheerleading at the high school level.  We are looking forward to cheering and motivating our DJFL teams and join all the other Fairfield County Football League communities with a successful and rewarding cheerleading program.

The DJCL squads will consist of Darien girls in Grades 2 through 5.  The season runs from early September through early-mid November depending on playoff schedules and results.  

Please see the Registration page for full details.

The DJFL is pleased to continue our policy of supporting all town of Darien public employees (paid and volunteer). For 2024, contact  [email protected] in order to qualify for the reduced registration fee of $150. The uniform deposit check will be collected when the uniforms are distributed.

The DJCL understands there may be special needs in certain families that may result in children needing scholarship assistance with registration fees. Any applicants wishing to apply for the scholarship should email Lindsay Blackinton. We will keep all scholarship requests in the strictest confidence. Note that all scholarships will still require a $150 registration fee as well as a deposit check for the uniform (to be collected when the uniforms are distributed).  The deposit check will be returned at the end of the season when the uniform is returned.
