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.
