The UNLV Cheerleaders are the intercollegiate athletics cheer team for the University of Nevada Las Vegas. The team performs at all men's basketball and football home games throughout the season. The UNLV cheerleaders must maintain high academic standards while training, performing, competing, and serving as ambassadors of the university at athletic events, and throughout the greater Las Vegas community.
We are very grateful to have the opportunity to compete at the UCA College Cheer Team National Championship in two Virtual Divisions, even with our shortened season. In order to represent UNLV at the highest standards, we must meet costly financial obligations. This includes uniforms, equipment, and competition fees in order to establish a highly competitive and visible team. Our program is currently the two time defending champions in the Game Day category. We have also placed third in the all-girl D1A division and strive to place higher this year!
Although the UNLV cheerleaders abide by NCAA rules and regulations, cheer is not sanctioned as an NCAA sport, and therefore, is not traditionally funded. The student athletes fundraise their entire operating budget. The cheerleaders are extremely grateful for the community support they receive each year, and hope for continued support as they take on new opportunities offered during the remainder of the 2020-2021 season.
We hope that you are willing to make a contribution, at any level, to our 2021 "Rebel Raiser" Project! Any contributions are greatly appreciated and will make a difference to help our program!!
