Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer scholarships?
Scholarships are available to members that have been on the team for one full year and have maintained a 3.0 GPA and above. The total award amount received is based on your GPA.

How much time do we get off for Thanksgiving and Christmas?
You will only be given approximately 14 days off during the winter break. This is due to the fact that 1/3 of the basketball games take place during this time and we start to prepare for Nationals. In addition, we may ask (depending on scheduling) for the team to not leave for the Thanksgiving break.

Are you taking guys?
Yes, we are taking guys. Guys must be able to stunt and/or tumble.

What is required over the summer?
We require that you continue to workout over the summer and maintain your skills. Skills checks will be assigned throughout the summer.

What if I donít have all of the requirements?
Tumbling is required. However, if you donít have all of the skills you are still encouraged to tryout. It is always a great experience and you will know what to expect the following year.

Are we allowed to work?
Yes as long as it does not conflict with our cheer schedule.

Are we allowed to do All-Star?
You are not allowed to participate on an All Star team when UNLV Cheer is in season (end of July through March).

What are the fees involved?
Returning members have to pay $800.00 and new members have to pay $1400.00. One third of this payment is due at tryouts.

What sports do we cheer for?
Football, Menís and Womenís Basketball

Do you compete and what division?
For the last couple of years UNLV has competed All Girl. The makeup of the team in 2013-2014 will decide what division we compete in 2014.
