Road to Nationals

We are the University of Washington Cheerleading team, 40 UW students who also dedicate ourselves to supporting the Athletic programs. As representatives of the university, our main goal has always been to support UW Athletics by cheering on the sidelines and leading our crowd on game day. One of our team goals this season is to return and compete at UCA Nationals in Orlando, FL in late January and finish in the Top 10. The team has been working all fall to be competition ready and with your support we can make this goal a reality.

In order to accomplish our goal, we are hoping to raise $25,000 to help send the University of Washington Cheerleading team to UCA Nationals. These funds will help cover the costs of flights, transportation, food, and lodging for the members traveling and competing.. This year our team is determined to compete at UCA Nationals and your support will allow us to not only remain committed students, but also to showcase our talent on the national stage.

Raising these funds will give our team the opportunity to return to Nationals and reach our goal of placing in the Top 10. Last year we returned to UCA Nationals for the first time in over 10 years and realized we can compete with the best in the country. This year its time for our program to not only go and compete but to finish in the Top 10 and to put UW Cheer back on the map as one of the best cheer programs in the country!

We take pride in representing the University of Washington and want to make sure the spirit program can be recognized for its athletic accomplishments.  By competing at UCA Nationals, UW has become a school that other young athletes desire to attend.  We want to advance our impact on the university and continue to make UW, and Husky Nation proud of our team. We can only make it happen with your support!
