St. Bonaventure Cheerleading



We are looking for a well-rounded individual. The SBU cheerleaders are highly visible within our community and therefore must be able to represent the University in a positive way. Commitment to a full year of participation is mandatory as we start in August / September with tryouts, practices in September and October and games begin in November. We cheer at Men's and Women's Basketball and we do a lot of campus and community service events. Practice is usually held three times a week during the evening hours during the beginning of the season and then may possibly extend through the basketball season. St. Bonaventure graduate and former cheerleader Abbie Bricker is the head coach.

Try out requirements:

Try outs will be held at the beginning of the fall semester. Practice will be held for a week and then try-outs will be held. Each participant will be scored on various categories. We invite all levels to participate in try outs. This season we will take between 12-15 cheerleaders, however if there are more participants we will consider taking 17 cheerleaders. Each participant must complete the forms and submit them before trying out for the squad.
