KU Cheerleading Clinics

The University of Kansas Cheerleaders offer a variety of clinic formats to best suit your needs. All our clinics are taught by experienced KU cheerleaders and coaches, and the clinics are small enough that you'll get plenty of individual instruction. To be notified of clinic dates by email, sign up for Email Updates.

2014 Cheer Clinics

Taught by the KU cheerleaders and coaches, the clinics focus mainly on coed stunting with the KU cheerleaders (ie, you don't need to bring a partner), plus some tumbling and usually a few other things that we vary each clinic. We can also instruct all-girl stunting if you bring a stunt group.

Next clinic: TBD

Spirit Day: Sat. Sept. 20, 2014

Cost is $55 per participant which includes game entry, t-shirt, snack, and 1-hour clinic (assuming game-time isn't 11am). Extra football tickets can be purchased for $15 per person, with details in the registration process. For questions, contact catj@ku.edu. Register online for Spirit Day »

Open Gyms

Open gyms are another way to work on your skills. Some area open gyms that usually have coed stunting are listed below. Note that these open gyms aren't run by or affiliated with KU, and most will require you and/or a parent to sign a waiver prior to participating. Please let me know if any of this information is incorrect!

  • G-Force in North Lawrence, Mondays 8:00-10:00pm ($3)
