Have a passion for supporting Miner Athletics? The Missouri S&T Spirit Teams will be hosting tryouts Saturday, April 27, 2018 – 8:30am. The teams consist of a Cheer Team, Gold Miner Dance Team, and Joe Miner mascot.

Who is eligible?

CHEER: We are a co-ed squad, both guys and gals are welcome to tryout. While cheerleading background is helpful, we have no minimum requirements. You must be a full-time student and maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA. Both squads are chosen from the leading scores based on our spring tryout.

GOLD MINERS: Anyone who loves dancing! While dance or pom background is helpful, we have no minimum requirements. You must be a full-time student and maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA. The dance team is chosen from the leading scores based on our spring tryout.

What is the time commitment?

Summer UCA/UDA camp is in late July and mandatory for all Spirit Team members. Pre-season practices will begin during Freshman Orientation week. ALL MEMBERS are required to attend these practices. Schedules will be adjusted not to interfere with other Freshman activities. During regular season, we practice 2-3 times per week for 2-3 hours a practice. We cheer at all home football and basketball games. Football season is usually 5 or 6 Saturdays in the fall; basketball games are typically on Thursdays and Saturdays beginning in November and continuing through mid-March with about 15 games total. We also participate in other athletic and student events on campus and support many community events as the face of our university. Events can include business grand openings, cheer clinics and camps for younger squads and charity events.

Saturday, April 27, 2018 – 8:30am
