St. Cloud State University Cheerleading

The purpose of the St. Cloud State (SCSU) Cheer Team is to proudly represent St. Cloud State University and support Husky Athletics by spreading husky pride at games, events, and other activities both on SCSU campus and in the greater St. Cloud community. The SCSU Cheer Team makes an effort to develop both the physical technique and life skills of its members through coaching, bonding, and practicing together.

The SCSU Cheer Team is a sponsored student organization under the Department of Campus Involvement (DCI). The DCI area of Spirit Groups includes both the SCSU Cheer Team and SCSU Dance Team.  

SCSU has two cheerleading squads: Sideline and Men's Hockey. The SCSU sideline cheer team cheers at all home football games, and all men's and women's home basketball games ensuring a high level of husky pride. The SCSU Hockey Cheer Team cheers at all home men's hockey games promoting positive St. Cloud spirit. Together these squads create the SCSU Cheer Team and work together towards a shared purpose.
