The UVic Vikes Cheer Club is a student run team supported by Vikes Recreation for full-time students at the University of Victoria. The cheerleaders attend multiple promotion and community philanthropy events throughout each semester along with cheering on the Vikes Men's and Women's Basketball teams at games in traditional game-day activities (crowd cheecrs, half-time shows, etc.). Vikes Cheer is primarily stunt based but also focuses on all aspects of cheerleading such as tumbling, jumps, dance, and sideline cheers as well as strength training in preparation for competition at the Sea to Sky International Cheerleading Championship.
We are looking for male and female athletes able to commit to both our vision and the program's requirements, including mandatory attendance at practices, games, and fundraisers. To achieve our goals, we will be practicing 2-3 times per week (not including game days). Most of all, we are looking for a fun and enthusiastic group of athletes so together we can develop, share, and advance our passion for cheerleading.
This club is a great opportunity to meet people and get involved in everything from creating cheers to choreographing routines. Tryouts for the Vikes Cheer Team are open to all students, male and female, and are held in early September. Cheerleaders are expected to schedule their classes around the practice times determined by the coaches. For more information visit our Facebook page at "The UVic Vikes Cheer Team". All equipment is provided to students.
To join the club, a yearly fee of $ 260.00 can be paid directly through the front desk at either McKinnon Gym, or the CARSA Membership Services desk. Membership for current Cheer squad members only - Sea-to-Sky in Vancouver.
