Manhattan College Cheerleading
Manhattan College cheerleaders have been a staple of the College for several years. This co-ed team assists in the support of Manhattan's rich traditions with cheering, dancing and stunting. They perform at all home men's and women's basketball games. The Manhattan College cheerleaders also perform at community service events and at other special events throughout the school year.
Tryouts are open to all students of Manhattan College. If selected for the team, please be aware that a significant time commitment will be requested of you. Participation in all team practices and men’s and women’s home basketball games is required. All absences must be approved by the coach in advance.
Required elements include jumps, cheers, fight song performance, and stunting. Women may also be asked to perform a short cheer style dance routine. Men must demonstrate sufficient strength for partner stunts.
Tumbling is not an absolute requirement, but is strongly preferred. We recommend preparing at least a back handspring with light spot.
