Cheerleaders at Lafayette are among the College's most visible students. They cheer for the Leopards' Division I men's and women's basketball teams, and the Division I football team. Cheerleading at Lafayette is an athletic activity and is supported by the athletic department, which provides a host of services, including sports medicine, strength and conditioning, uniforms, warm-ups and travel. Being a member of the squad requires dedication and time management to balance academics, conditioning, practices, cheerleading at football and basketball games, and performances at various events.
The season is nearly year-round, beginning with tryouts in the spring before the squad attends camp and begins practice in August. They cheer for the football team through November before turning to basketball season for both the men's and women's teams, which continues until March. The squad usually practices three to four days a week, depending on the upcoming schedule.
To obtain more information about the squad, please contact head coach Dana Filchner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
