Wake Forest University's Spirit Office is the home of the Demon Deacon cheerleading squad, dance team and mascots. Our talented cheerleaders, dancers and mascots can be seen at all home football, men's basketball and women's basketball games throughout the year. The teams also make appearances at all away football games and basketball postseason tournament games.
All athletes must maintain a 2.5 GPA and attend weekly study halls in order to participate in appearances. Both the cheer and dance teams practice three times per week for no less than two hours at a time. They are also required to attend at least two weight-lifting sessions per week with the team's strength coaches.
2014 Spring Tryouts: Spring Cheerleading, Dance Team and Mascot tryouts for next year will be held on Sunday, April 27, at 3:00 p.m., in Varsity Gym, Reynolds Gymnasium.
Please note while incoming freshmen are welcome with their letter of acceptance, these tryouts are primarily meant to only pick a summer/preseason team which consists of members with the skills and experience needed on cheer and dance Gold (Varsity) Team only. Freshmen are definitely encouraged to attend the fall tryouts which will be within the first two weeks of classes this fall. Any questions, call the cheer office at (336) 758-4902.
