The Westford Jr. Ghosts football and cheer programs are hoping to build on last year’s exceptional success by attracting new members for the upcoming season.

The football and cheer programs, open to boys and girls ages 5 to 15, are coming off their best season in recent memory. Players and cheer members of all ages had productive and fun seasons, but several of the teams earned both state and national acclaim.

The Westford Jr. Ghosts Pee Wee cheerleaders were undefeated champions, taking the title last December at the Pop Warner National Cheerleading Championships at the ESPN Wide World of Sports in Kissimmee, Fla. The team of 12 girls, several of whom were new to the sport, competed against eight other regional champions from all over the country.

The Westford Jr. Ghosts Mitey Mite Football Team capped last season with an eye-opening undefeated romp through the Pop Warner “Baby Bowl” tournament in Boston last November.  The Baby Bowl, held annually since 2009, attracts teams of mostly 7 and 8 year olds from Pop Warner programs throughout eastern Massachusetts.

In-person registration and equipment pick-up will be held Saturday, June 20 at the Abbot School from 9 am to noon. Coaches, current players, and cheer team members will be on hand to answer questions about the programs, including information about the Pop Warner emphasis on fun, full player participation, and safe tackling.
