       The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) Cheer  and Dance Team program is administered through Campus Recreation.  We support the mission of Campus Recreation, which is to enhance the collegiate experience, foster personal and professional development, and provide opportunities for cultural and social interaction. 


       Members of the Cheer and Dance Team program must be enrolled for a minimum of 12 hours per semester, maintaining a minimum 2.0 GPA to be eligible. (Seniors/grad students credit hours will be discussed on an individual basis.)  The length of service for an SIUE cheerleader  or dancer is one year from the date of selection.  


       The primary focus of the Competitive Cheer team is preparing for and competing at NCA Nationals.  Members of the Competitive  Cheer team may also be a part of the Game Day squad.  Game Day cheerleaders cheer at all home SIUE Club Football games and all home NCAA DI men’s and women’s soccer and basketball games.  

       The SIUE Dance Team is a competitive dance team.  The SIUE Dance Team performs at home men’s and women’s basketball games and also competes at NDA Collegiate Nationals. 


       The Cheer and Dance Teams practice separately as well as together.  Practices will be held a minimum of two times per week.  Team workouts for strength and conditioning are also required.
