Do you want to be a member of the Missouri State Cheer Squad?
The Campus Visit Desk can set up a formal campus tour and arrange a meeting with the Cheer Squad coach as a part of that process.
If you are planning a visit to the Missouri State Campus we would love to meet you and give you some more information about the Cheer Squad and answer any questions you may have in a personal manner. The squad practices on Monday evenings and Tuesday and Thursday afternoons if you would like to come and watch a practice please contact us well in advance of your visit and we can set up a meeting with you outside of practice times.
Tryout information for the upcoming year is released in February.
Tryout Weekends are held in the spring for the following school year. Tryout Weekends are typically sometime in the last two weeks of April. If deemed necessary an additional tryout will be held in the fall to fill any open positions.
Preceding the Tryout Weekend there are 2-3 Tryout Clinics these clinics cover the material that will be covered in the tryout process. These clinics are not mandatory but most typical squad candidates attend 2 of the 3 clinics to be adequately prepared.
The Cheer Squad cheers for Football, Volleyball, and both Men's and Women's Basketball.
The squad also competes annually at the UCA College Nationals in Orlando, FL each January and placed 3rd in Division 1 in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, and 5th in 2013.
Each squad member has the opportunity to earn a stipend, as well as, a large portion of their cheerleading related expenses covered by the University. The amount of this benefit varies on a year to year basis. In addition each squad member is permitted to enroll in KIN 297 for credit as a member of the squad and also receives tickets to each home football game for friends and family.
