Gator Football and Cheer

Gator Commissioner Fred Lowery fred.lowery@islandreccenter.org

View their website. Gator Football goes back more than 40 years on Hilton Head. This program is full contact football for youth ages 5-12. The Gators currently play in the Low Country Football League, which is made up of 8 teams throughout the Lowcountry. In addition to coaching on various skills, techniques, etc., our players will be learning life skills. Cheerleading is for girls between the ages of 5 - 13 years old and are grouped based on age. They cheer for the Gator Football team at all 8 games throughout the season and at various Lowcountry locations. The girls learn the necessary foundations of cheerleading, along with other skills they can apply in other aspects of life - such as a good work ethic. The girls also learn a competition routine that is performed at the end of the season in the Lowcountry Cheerleading Competition, to be held at the same location as the football end of season playoffs.
