Husky Pup Squad

We are excited to announce the dates for our Winter Pup Squad!  Your child can wear an authentic uniform with their very own pair of poms, attend cheer and dance practices and perform alongside UW Cheer and Dance in  Alaska Airlines Arena at a UW Men’s and Women’s Basketball game.
This year we are separating practices and games based on age group. Ages 5-7 will be in one group and ages 8-10 will be in another group. Each age group will have 3 practices and perform at 1 UW Men’s and 1 UW Women’s Basketball game. Each group will be capped at 100 participants. If you would like to keep siblings/friends together you can, just make sure to sign them up for the same age group.

The winter uniform is our traditional purple uniform. If you participated in the winter season last year and don’t need a new uniform use the code PupSquad to receive a discount on registration.
