Butler University Cheerleading Clinics and Tryouts

Thank you for your interest in Butler Cheerleading!  The main focus and goal for the Spirit program is to increase crowd involvement and positively contribute to the overall atmosphere of Butler University athletic events. The cheerleaders also work hard at being positive representatives, supporters, and promoters of Butler University. To make this goal successful, we need the right people to work together on this team.  You may now have the opportunity to contribute to this team, increase your skill level, and create memorable experiences while you are at Butler.
