Cheerleading Tryout Information/Registration

2013-14 Roster


Capital University cheerleaders are some of the best in the state of Ohio. Being a Crusader cheerleader can be a rewarding experience. It's a chance to meet new people and establish lifelong friendships, travel, be visible on campus and in the community, and to be an active participant at numerous sporting events. The CU cheerleading program prides itself on being honest, respected and a program with integrity. Members of the Cap cheerleading squad are ambassadors of Capital University and available for off campus performances and events.

All cheerleaders cheer at all home and selected away football games, men's and women's home basketball games, the Ohio Athletic Conference tournaments and various university and community service events.  The Capital men’s and women’s basketball programs, are consistently among the top teams in the region and the nation. The Capital men have won two of the last three OAC championships!

Depending on the athletic schedule, cheerleaders are required to cheer games during semester breaks, spring break, and university scheduled holidays as well as some national holidays.  Capital University is a member of the NCAA Division III. We cannot offer scholarships for cheerleading but the university does furnish our uniforms. Other personal items such as practice attire, shoes, warm-ups, bags, camp attendance fees and more are the responsibility of each girl. We do fundraise to offset expenses.

All squad members selected are required to attend all practices during the fall and spring semesters. Practices are held 2-3 times a week for 2-3 hours at a time. All cheerleaders are expected to participate in games, scheduled team activities and appearances. Tumbling is an important part of our program at Capital. In addition to practice, the squad also has a tumbling session each week off campus. Stunting experience is not required. The Cap cheerleaders attend a stunting clinic prior to the football season each year.

A spring tryout is held to secure the entire cheerleading program for the next year. The number of positions to be filled is contingent on the number of students who meet the tryout requirements. What are we looking for at tryouts? We want someone who really loves to cheer!
