Cheerleading Team

The Western State Colorado University Cheerleading Program is committed to providing a dynamic and positive environment for young women and men to pursue all aspects of excellence. This includes character, self discipline, commitment and leadership. We believe in education through sport, practicality, and promoting community and pride in Western.

The cheerleading team will participate in a variety of activities such as community service and fundraisers. Cheerleaders are responsible for cheering at the home football and basketball games, practices - which are held at least three times a week, and organized morning workouts. The team will also begin competing in the 2014 - 2015 season.  As a cheerleader for Western State Colorado University, one must be dedicated and determined and be prepared to work to their full potential at ALL times.
