Cheerleading

Georgetown University is the nation's oldest Catholic and Jesuit University. Its outstanding athletic teams complement its academic excellence, international presence, and ideal setting in Washington, DC. Georgetown cheerleaders embody exemplary sportsmanship, school representation and Hoya pride. Most of all, they are an integral component of athletic contests.

Team Information
Many of the team members possess strong gymnastic abilities and/or strong dance experience, and most of the team cheered in high school.

Commitment
Georgetown cheerleaders incur no out-of-pocket expenses to participate. All uniforms are provided, and cheerleaders receive sneakers, warm-ups, duffel bags and other athletic gear at no cost. Georgetown University arranges and pays for all travel accommodations, including food and hotels, and registration and housing fees for attendance at UCA summer college camp.

Practices are held three times a week and are scheduled so as not to interfere with classes. The cheerleading season begins with summer camp for college cheerleading and new student orientation performances in August, continues through football season, and follows with basketball season and post-season appearances through early April.

Tryout Information
Tryouts are held in mid-April for current students and early September for all interested students. There are 2 mandatory clinics where prospective cheerleaders learn all the material they will be required to perform at tryouts. A short interview is also conducted during clinics. On the day of tryouts, prospective cheerleaders are evaluated on their performance, crowd appeal, strong motion ability, coordination, personality and attitude. No previous experience is necessary.
