2024 Football and Cheer Registration is now open!

Register now for Football and Cheerleading. The season starts on or around August 5th!

SDP Football Camp runs June 24th-27th from 6-7:30pm. The cost is $75. Camp is held at East Fishkill Rec and is open to all tackle football players, including incoming 8U tackle players. 

The Registration "Home" is not currently available.

Our cheer clinics are for Grades K-8.  If you have a child who is in Pre-K currently and would like to attend, please note the clinic is a drop off.  They have to be able to stay for 2 hours and want to participate.  

If your child is going to be in Pre-K next year and wanting to do the Pre-K team in the fall, we are allowing that age group at the April 7th clinic only.  Please note, they also must be able to be ok with being dropped off and left.  We will have this age group only come from 11-12 but unfortunately, we can't reduce the price.  

Any questions, please email
