Cheerleading - Red Alert

The cheerleaders at Washington University in St. Louis are a non-varsity, co-ed, recognized student group on campus and open to any Washington University student. Our main objective is to provide spirit and support for the athletic teams at WUSTL, most specifically to the football team and the men's and women's basketball teams.

The squad has been featured on the CBS Early Show, Great Day St. Louis, and



Tryouts for the 2014-15 Washington University Co-Ed Cheerleading Team will be announced this summer.

The time commitment and requirements include cheering for all home football and men's and women's home basketball games, as well as potential post-season games whether home or away. Practice time ranges from four-six hours a week. Other appearances and duties are left to the discretion of the coach.

No experience is necessary, but you must attend both tryout dates to join the team. Our co-ed team welcomes both men and women with strong athletic abilities. Former wrestlers, football players, and other athletes are encouraged to tryout.

Incoming and current students, look for us during orientation, and at the Activities Fair!
