Coaching Youth Cheerleading Training

The NYSCA Coaching Youth Cheerleading section is one of the most comprehensive resources for volunteer coaches involved in youth cheerleading programs.

During the sport-specific portion of the NYSCA training program cheerleading coaches view the Coaching Youth Cheerleading training video, which focuses on how to go about teaching many of the key fundamentals of the sport to youngsters. The video is designed to help you, regardless if you are new to the sport or have coached for many years, enhance both your knowledge and teaching skills so you are better prepared to help guide every youngster on your team to a safe, fun and rewarding experience.


To enrich your learning experience, the NYSCA Coaching Youth Cheerleading section includes the use of video instruction for demonstrations. These live-action segments are unique to our program, and they provide you with the most effective and exciting way to learn. Topics covered in this video include:

  • Warm ups
  • Arm and Leg Movements
  • Formations
  • Cheering
  • Jumps
  • Tumbling
  • Roundoffs
  • Stunting
  • Teaching Life Skills
  • Dance Routines
  • and much more...
