Registration is currently under way for Mount Airy Bears youth football and cheerleading.
Those interested in participating in either sport during the 2018 season may sign up as soon as today from noon to 2 p.m. at Jones Intermediate School. Saturday’s registration period is the first of two that will be held during the month of June. The second will be held next Saturday, June 9 from noon to 2 p.m., also at Jones.
Registration fees are $85 for one child, $75 for the second and $50 for third or any additional children being signed up. Football players must turn seven years old no later than Dec. 31, 2018, and be no younger than 12 as of August 1. Children who are 13 or older as of Aug. 1 will have to compete at the middle school level instead.
Cheerleaders must turn three years old no later than Aug. 1 and are eligible to cheer through their eighth-grade year.
All new participants need to bring a copy of their birth certificate.
Prospective football players who miss the June sign-up dates will have a second chance to register in July. Football-only registration will be held from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 14 at Jones, and at the same times on Saturday, July 28, at Mount Airy High School.
