Experience, although encouraged, is not a requirement. We accept all skill levels; performers of any kind, dancers, gymnasts, figure skaters, cheerleaders, etc., or someone wanting to try something new and fun. Additionally, we welcome graduate students and semester exchange students from other CMU Campuses.

All prospects must obtain a physical prior to the first stunting practice. A physical can be obtained at health services on campus or any urgent care facility. Please visit the sports medicine site for the physical form. Additionally, any cheerleader that accepts a position on the team is required to fill out mandatory medical forms through the athlete portal.
