The Cisco College Cheer Program is designed to help cheerleaders improve on existing skills and to learn more advanced skills. The program emphasizes proper technique prior to increasing the level of difficulty.
Practice time is divided between 4 major categories: cheers/chants, jumps, stunting, and tumbling. Athletic conditioning is worked in throughout each week. Cisco College Cheer supports all of our athletic programs. The squad cheers at all home football, volleyball, and basketball games. To support the other sports, the squad attends games and cheers from the stands.

Wrangler Cheer auditions are held each year during the early spring and early summer. We offer three different ways to audition for our team. The first one is a basic one-day audition that is typically called "Senior Day". Senior Days are normally set during the spring semester on a Monday to accommodate candidates that need to travel. At this audition, you will have the opportunity to tour the campus, visit with financial aide, counselors, and participate in a Question/Answer session with the director personally before the audition that normally takes place after lunch. During this particular audition, you will need to bring a dance of your own that high lights your strengths as a dancer.
Auditions will be held during summer months in June and July. You will need to bring a dance of your own that highlights your strengths. Tours are available to view our campus, but you must set up your tour in advance with Student Life. Candidate should be prepared to execute technique across the floor and learn a kick sequence. After completing the audition, scholarships will be awarded.
