Cheerleading Club

The University of Houston-Downtown cheerleading club team was developed to promote and uphold team spirit among the UHD community. Members are encouraged to promote good sportsmanship by example, while bringing pride to those who attend UHD by cheering at sporting events offered by UHD Sports & Fitness as well as various events sponsored by the university. The squad won the “Most Spirited” spirit stick at NCA Summer Camp in 2012, and competed at the 2016 NCA Spring Classic.
