Student Activities - Cheer & Dance
The mission of the Greenville University Spirit Program is to glorify God through the gifts and talents He has given us, by leading and bringing school spirit to athletic and other campus and community events. All participants are ambassadors of Greenville University on campus, in the community, and in other areas.
The Greenville University Panther Cheerleading Program is a coed team comprised of approximately 16 females and males, in its fifth season as a club sport in the Athletics Department. We cheer for all home (and some travel) games for football and men’s basketball. and occasionally cheer for home games for men’s and women’s volleyball. Gameday is our emphasis, but we are very competitive as well! We are CCA Christian Cheer Nationals & Collegiate Championship titleholders in the Coed Division and GRAND COLLEGIATE CHAMPIONS for the 2017 and 2018 years. We are currently ranked top 5 in the nation at USA Collegiate Championships two years running.
The Greenville University Panther Dance Team is in its second year as a club sport in the Athletic Department under the direction of Spirit Program Coordinator, Sean Anthony Washington. The Dance Team adds a dynamic effect to the gameday and campus/community environment and is competitive as well. The team holds regional titles (1st place in the Open Jazz Division with ACP) and a top 10 in the national dance team with USA Collegiate Championships.
As club sports at Greenville, we recruit our athletes, similar to the NCAA-regulated sports. Recruited athletes are eligible to receive a Spirit Scholarship (based on skill, ability, need, and availability). A formal signing of a Letter of Commitment upon committing to GU guarantees a position on the roster!
