NSFL Cheer Coming Soon: Seeking Cheer/Dance Directors

Late last year, football fans were given some exciting news; spring football was coming in the form of a pure developmental league known as the NSFL. The league had goals to kick off in the spring of 2013, however, newer franchises joining the league and sponsorship benchmarks required extra time. From a business standpoint, the league decided to postpone the inaugural season to the spring of 2014.

The league is utilizing 2013 as their official campaign season.

The NSFL will be hosting National Cheerleading Auditions the week of August 11-18 in 14 US cities to include: Providence RI, Boston MA, Virginia Beach VA, St Petersburg/Tampa FL, Louisville KY, Atlanta GA, Houston TX, San Antonio TX, Phoenix AZ, Las Vegas NV, San Jose CA, Los Angeles CA and Portland OR.
The NSFL is a developmental league. From players to staff and all the way to their cheerleaders.

The league’s goal is to promote players to the next level of football. The next level can be either the CFL or the NFL. Our goal as Cheer/Dance Directors is to get our girls promoted as well.

Currently, the NSFL is looking for Cheer/Dance Directors to fill each market!
