Are you a future Gorilla?
A gameday first, large co-ed, and UCA Division II nationally-ranked team; Pittsburg State University Cheerleading has a storied tradition that dates back to the 1930s. We are always looking for forward-thinking, adaptable, and selfless student athletes to carry on this tradition. If you were to ask alumni and current team members what defines a Gorilla cheerleader, it would be camaraderie. As a member of the Pitt Cheer squad, you will find that success is not a measure of your accomplishments, but a measure of the team's overall success; not only for gameday and for competition.
