Cheerleading

The Ursinus College Cheerleading Team consists of approximately 16-24 individuals who cheer at all home Ursinus football games and select basketball games.

Cheerleading is a club sport at Ursinus College. The team attends 3-4 practices a week in addition to games and appearances. The goal of the team is to generate energy, spirit and enthusiasm throughout campus. Our season runs from August-March depending on basketball season. The team is tentatively traveling to UCA college camp in July. More details to come.
