USD Cheerleading

The cheerleading squad supports school athletics by engaging the crowd and helping to create enthusiasm at sporting events. Our cheerleaders believe in their identity as school ambassadors and are committed to representing the University of South Dakota in a positive and professional manner.

The squad is typically coed and comprised of approximately 20 members, but varies from year to year. The number of athletes is flexible and may change based on the needs of the team and the university. The cheerleaders can be seen cheering at football games as well as home men’s and women’s basketball games. The number of sports may be expanding soon, so check back periodically for updates!
