Weekend Community Events Kick Off the Season for the Medford IndiansFootball & Cheer Programs

The Medford Indians MYAA Football & Cheer programs kick off the season this weekend and are inviting the Medford community to join in the festivities. The events begin Friday night as the MYAA players and cheerleaders join the Shawnee Renegades players and cheerleaders on the turf during a ceremony before the Renegades take on Cherry Hill West. We will also be recognizing the contributions made to our program by 4 former members of the MYAA football staff. 

On Saturday our regular season begins with five varsity home games at the Hartford Crossing Sports Complex on Church Rd. The day will include more than just football and cheer as we bring together other organizations from the township to make this truly a community event. In addition to local vendors and other local community organizations we will be joined by students from the New Jersey School of Music performing live music and vocal performances. The event gives all of our kids... players, cheerleaders and performers alike, a chance to perform in front of the community.  

Immediately following the 105lb game, we will be honoring last year's 120lb team for their South Jersey Elite undefeated championship season. The 85lb and 105lb Cheer squads will also be recognized for placing 1st in the 2013 Annual South Jersey Elite Cheer Competition.

The day starts at 10AM with the first of our five Varsity games against the Eastern Vikings and continues through the day with the unlimiteds finishing the day's games at 5:15. The day's festivities are completed with the annual parent's social being held at the Medford Lakes Country Club at 7:30. Sunday will include three additional games played by our 105lb and 120lb JV teams starting at 9AM .
