Oneida Pop Warner has quite a lot to cheer about: Our own Mitey Mite cheer squad has a coveted spot on the national stage for the upcoming championship in Walt Disney World.

A wonderful performance at the recent Eastern Region Pop Warner 2019 Cheer & Dance Championships has earned them the honor to represent our community after placing secpnd in their age and ability level, allowing them to advance to Disney.

It is a big honor; this year’s trip to Disney marks the second year of advancement to nationals for Oneida.

“Our cheerleaders really put in the work this season, and we’re so proud,” said Oneida Pop Warner Cheer Coordinator Jessica Watson. “The girls and their coaches put in many long hours of practice on the field, rain or shine, to perfect these routines, and it shows.”

There are many anticipated expenses associated with a team’s trip and participation in the national competition, so Oneida Pop Warner is looking for community support. A Go Fund Me is available at, and there are several ways you can help: Returnable bottles and cans are accepted at T N J Five Cent Return (116 W. Elm St.) in Oneida. When dropping off, please let them know your donation is for Oneida Pop Warner. An upcoming delicious way to show your support is to join us at a spaghetti dinner fundraiser for Oneida Pop Warner Cheer from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1, 2019, at the Durhamville Fire Department (5305 Church St.).
