Who We Are

The Lamar University Cheerleading Team is a competitive, co-ed team that performs at all home football games, home men’s and women’s basketball games, and specific traveling games and tournaments, as well as various Lamar University and community events.

MISSION STATEMENT

The Lamar University Cheerleading Team is committed to providing team members with the opportunity to develop creativity, personal growth, and school spirit.  Participating in performances, appearances, and volunteer activities allow our members to represent Lamar University on many platforms and encourage school pride throughout our community.  Our representatives have the opportunity to network with university administrators, community members and political figures; increasing their chance of success in their professional lives after college.

OUR COMMITMENT

The Lamar University Cheerleading Team’s goals and commitments include providing comprehensive and individual instruction to all our members through the professionals we bring in during the year and the nationally accredited camps we attend as a team. In addition, we try to develop fine role models and strive to empower and build self confidence and self-esteem by encouraging their competitive nature.

DIVERSITY

Members on our team come from a diverse background. Some members have been trained extensively in gymnastics, some have participated on competitive cheerleading teams, and other members come from elite pom squads. Incoming members are from our region, around the state, and out of state. This diversity is what makes our team outstanding as they draw from each other’s strengths and experiences to succeed.
