Team Member Information
The University of Arizona Cheerleading squad is dedicated to promoting school spirit through a variety of dance moves, stunts and interacting with the crowd. The Wildcat Cheerleaders are made up of a coed group of people and attempt to unify the UA community throughout the year. The UA Wildcat Cheerleaders also attend University functions, public appearances and charity events.
The UA Wildcat Cheerleaders are involved in many events around the community and at their own school, so they do not compete nationally. Being a Wildcat Cheerleader is a large commitment, and they believe it comes second only to academics. Practice for the UA Wildcats Cheerleading squad goes year round and you better be ready to bring it to these practices.
The Arizona mascots are Wilbur and Wilma T. Wildcat. Wilbur made his first appearance in 1915. Wilbur was first introduced as a live bobcat, but when he died a year later. After that, live mascots were used on and off until the Wilbur we know today was premiered on November 7, 1959. Wilma was created when the costume designers attempted to make another costume for Wilbur, but made Wilma instead. Wilma first appeared on March 1, 1986 and was on a blind date with Wilbur. On November 21, 1986 the two were married before the Arizona-Arizona State football game.
Make sure to check out a University of Arizona sporting event to see what the Wildcats Cheerleaders can bring to the game. You won’t be disappointed.
