The GW Spirit Program

The GW Spirit Program is comprised of our nationally competitive co-ed cheer team, First Ladies dance team and mascot squad. These teams work together to support all of our GW Athletic teams and the greater George Washington University community. The Spirit Program performs at men's and women's home basketball games and interacts with Colonials fans to make sure the Buff & Blue always have home advantage in DC.

Talent awards are granted to all team members and tryouts are held in both September and April. Incoming freshmen, transfer students, and current GW students in good academic standing are eligible to attend either tryout. The Spirit Program is committed to entertaining Colonials fans and promoting school spirit across campus.
