This season marks the 11th season for the Cheerleading Program here at Thompson River's University. The program has two teams, a Competitive Team competing at Collegiate Level 4, and a Spirit Squad competing at Open Level 4.2. Each team is very involved in the community volunteering at events, as well as supporting Varsity Athletics throughout the season. In 2016-2017, the Competitive Team had their most successful season yet, coming first at every competition aside from Nationals, which were just out of their grasp by .75 on the scoresheet. The Competitive Team practices upwards to 5 times a week, and the Spirit Squad 4 times. Both teams can be seen practicing at the Kamloops Gymnastics Trampoline Centre.
“This year we are looking for experienced cheerleaders, gymnasts and dancers, both male and female, who want to represent TRU at some major competitions in 2017-18. Our Competitive Team will consist of 15 athletes, and our Spirit Squad 19 athletes. Our goal is to win a National Title to bring home to WolfPack and Thompson Rivers University for the 2017-2018 season.”
