Cheerleading (Co-ed)

Return to Club Sports Home

Cheerleading tryouts for next year’s season will be here soon!

Denison cheerleaders promote school spirit and support the school’s varsity football and basketball teams. Tryouts will consist of three dates and are mandatory for interested students that are on campus. For students who are abroad or in high school, video submissions will be accepted until June 15th. On the first two days of tryouts you will learn a cheer, dance, jumps, and stunts that will be shown during tryouts on Friday. Clinics will be held to help those interested in joining the squad work on skills in order to have a successful tryout. Attendance to clinics is not required but is highly suggested. There is not a tumbling requirement for the squad but tumbling skills are preferred. High school seniors can still tryout even if the decision to go to Denison has not yet been made.

The purpose of Denison University Cheerleading is to provide students with the opportunity to grow, learn, lead and experience athletic activities. We will promote and uphold school spirit, develop a sense of sportsmanship among the students, build better relationships between schools during all athletic events, and develop a stronger sense of responsibility as individuals and leaders.

Our mission is to foster a collective spirit and unity within Denison University and the greater community. We hope to represent Denison University in a positive light by creating active support of all student activities, displaying and encouraging good sportsmanship by players and observers, and upholding the ideals and values of members of the Denison community. While practicing and demonstrating our athleticism, we hope to bond as a team with the common goal of creating and sustaining campus-wide support of the athletic program at Denison University.
