The Cheerleading program at SCSU is a year round club sport. There is one team that cheers for home football and men's/women's basketball games. In addition to cheering on the sideline, the SCSU cheerleaders compete locally, regionally and nationally. Tryouts are typically held toward the end of the spring semester. For information on tryout requirements, visit www.scsucheerleading.com. Practices are usually held three to four times a week. When getting ready for Nationals, the team practices four to five times a week and during the winter break. SCSU cheerleading has participated in UCA College Nationals (held in Walt Disney World, Orlando, FL) each January for the past 20 years, where they were crowned National Champions in 2009. As ambassadors to the university, SCSU cheerleaders also are involved with several campus and community events.
