Cheerleading was officially recognized in the 1970's, but has been a part of the Pop Warner program for several decades. The first ever National Cheerleading competition was held in DeKalb county, GA. Today, more than 180,000 children are participating in Pop Warner cheerleading and dance around the world.
Participation in the Pop Warner Spirit program provides kids an opportunity to perform in an organized, supervised, safety oriented environment. The Camas Jets Pop Warner program emphasizes fun for all and encourages the development of qualities important long after Pop Warner days are gone.

Cheerleaders attend conditioning practices each weekday in August from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Practices take place outside at the Prune Hill Sports Park. Players will participate in exercise activities aimed to improve flexibility, core strength, and jump conditioning. This is a great opportunity for the kids to get to know each other and learn how to work together as a team. In order to perform stunts, each player is required to participate in 20 hours of conditioning practice. In addition to conditioning, players learn cheers, stunts, and dance routines. After school starts, practices take place 2-3 times per week in the evenings.
The Greater Northwest Conference Pop Warner league kicks off the fall season by hosting a showcase of the teams, called the Jamboree. This takes place on a Sunday toward the end of August.
