The Capital University Cheerleaders are an integral part of CU Spirit, the University, and the community. Capital Cheerleaders take pride in promoting school spirit, encouraging positive crowd participation at CU events. CU Cheerleaders are excellent ambassadors for the University and participate in off-campus performances and events. All squad members are expected to be honest, respectful, have a strong work ethic, and uphold the Capital University brand.
All squad members are required to attend all practices during the Fall and Spring semesters, and:
- All home and select away football games
- All men’s and women’s home basketball games and select away games
- Games and practices held during semester breaks, spring break, and University scheduled and national holidays
- Ohio Athletic Conference tournaments
- Special appearances (on and off-campus)
- Various athletic, community service, and fundraising events
Stunting and tumbling skills are very important to the CU Cheerleading Program. Stunting experience is not required to try out or make the squad, but it is highly encouraged. All current and future squad members are required to have a back handspring (standing or running) and to work on mastering a back tuck (standing or running).
“Cappy”, CU’s official mascot, is an important member of the CU Cheerleading Program and Capital University. Cappy can be seen alongside the CU Cheerleaders during games and at various campus and community events.
Tryouts for the 2015-16 Capital University cheer team will be held on Friday, April 10, 2015 from 6-9 p.m. inside the Capital Center. Tryouts are closed to the public. Any full-time Capital University student and one who has been accepted by the University may tryout.
