Cougar Cheer Teams
Steeped in tradition, the University of Houston Cheerleaders consists of two squads: one co-ed, and one all-female. Auditions for both squads are held in the spring for the following year and are open to all university students, including transfer students and high school seniors who have been accepted to the University. The cheer teams represent the University of Houston at scheduled athletics events including home football and basketball games. Also, the cheerleaders compete at regional and national cheer competitions as seen on television.
