Meet the Clubs

Competitive Cheerleading

Info:

Cheer

The Competitive Club Cheerleading Team is perfect for the cheerleader who has a genuine passion for the sport of cheerleading and is looking for a challenge. We are a team that does NOT perform at football or basketball games, but rather a competitive team that competes at competitions all along the East Coast. We welcome both rookies and veterans, and we highly promote good sportsmanship at all times. While winning and doing successful in competitions is a significant element in competitive cheerleading, the JMU Competitive Club Cheerleading Team sets goals other than coming home with trophies. Our goals are to set an example for JMU and the Harrisonburg Community, promote teamwork and leadership skills, encourage teammates and be constructive, and ultimately have fun while being an active member of society.

Our season starts as soon as school does, and ends typically in April. We usually compete in 5-6 competitions along the East Coast. While we do not compete in specific conferences each year, the competitions we attend allow us to compete with teams such as: University of Maryland, Christopher Newport University, University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, just to name a few!

There are only Fall tryouts, which are typically held within the first few weeks of school. It is required to attend the 4 day tryout clinic. While tumbling is strongly encouraged, it is NOT a requirement. Depending on the year, we typically have about 25-30 members on the team. Dues are typically around $125-$200 per year, depending on which competitions we will be attending. Depending on the participation of the individual during the year (competing/alternate), the prices of dues may vary.

We practice for 2 hours, 3 times a week – practices are held Sunday, Monday, and Wednesdays from 9pm-11pm in the Godwin Gymnastics room.
