The Gustavus Cheerleading Team is a Gustavus Adolphus College Student Organization that operates under the advisement of the Gustavus Athletic Department. 

The team typically consists of 12-16 members of the Gustavus student body who display the Gustie Spirit! Sideline cheers, jumps, stunts, and pyramids are the primary focus of the squad. Tumbling is not a required skill; however, members with prior experience may tumble at practices and games. 

Our team cheers at all home football games and all home men's/women's basketball games. At this time, we are not a competitive cheerleading team. 

In the Fall, we have a week to week and a half long preseason before the start of classes where we prepare all game day material. During the season, the team practices 3 times a week. Practices are 2 hours and occur in the evenings to avoid academic conflicts. Strength training, team bonding, and team events/appearances are outside of practice times. 

Tryouts are held each spring in our off-season. Please see the tryout page for more information.

The Gustavus cheer program returned to campus in the Fall of 2001. As of the Fall of 2006, the athletic department embraced the program to revamp it into a robust and viable program. Our program outlines strict academic and athletic excellence rules to which all participants must adhere.
