EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - The New Providence PAL Cheerleaders (grades 6, 7 and 8) loaded a bus at the crack of dawn and headed for MetLife Stadium in preparation for their halftime show performance at the Jets game in front of over 78,000 people on Sunday, Nov. 24.
What is their most-spectated cheer routine to date, the 23 girls left at 5:30 a.m. to warmup before walking onto the field later that day.
After six weeks of extra training in addition to their usual season practices, these young girls put on an amazing performance during the halftime show, as evidenced by the cheers of the fans.
This was the first time NP PAL Cheer participated in this Jets experience, and a perfect way to end the 2019 Cheer and Football season.
Following the Jets game, the B level 7th grade NP PAL Football team took the field in a friendly scrimmage with a team from Connecticut.
Formed in 1949 and celebrating their 70th-year anniversary, the New Providence Police Athletic League is a nationally affiliated non-profit organization that offers the area's youth the opportunity to participate in sports while developing lasting relationships with many of the volunteer members of our community.
