Program Overview

Thank you for your interest in the University of Denver Cheer Team. Our mission as the Spirit of Denver is to support our students, athletes, and coaches on game day and represent Denver Athletics in the community. Team members are required to attend hockey, basketball, soccer, and lacrosse games. We occasionally travel to in-state away games and travel out-of-state to attend The Summit League Conference Tournament. We are active in the community and participate in several service and outreach activities during the season.

Team conditioning, practice and tumbling training typically takes place Tuesday through Thursday from 6-8 pm. Our season runs August through June, with heavier commitments December-March. As the basketball season begins, practice sessions are reduced to accommodate game attendance. Team members are required to commit to a heavy, but fulfilling, schedule.  Depending on the skill and talent of each year's team, DU may attend summer camp and compete in national collegiate competitions.

Team members receive scholarship assistance for tuition. The financial award increases each successive year on the team and is awarded in the spring quarter. Travel and accommodations for camp, competitions, conference tournaments, and all expenses for team activities and uniforms are provided by DU. Adidas is the official outfitter for DU athletics and provides the cheer team with sports-wear. Team members receive other tangible benefits through corporate sponsorships.

Members of the cheer team are ambassadors of DU and its athletic department. As such, selection of team members is not only dependent on athleticism, skill, and talent, but also on academic integrity and personal character.

For Spring or Fall Try-Out information, please contact coach Kraus for a try-out packet.

Thank you for your interest in our program. Go Pioneers!
