University of Florida Club Cheerleading (UFCC) is a sport club governed by RecSports at UF. We are a Co-Ed competitive cheerleading program with three teams: Blue, Orange and White. Scroll down to learn more about our teams!
The Blue team competes in the Intermediate All-Girl Division IA at NCA College Nationals. Our routine is composed of elite stunting and tumbling skills, similar to all-star cheerleading. However, we also perform a collegiate style cheer during NCA Nationals in Daytona Beach, Florida. Although we are a competitive club sports team at the University of Florida, we have the honor of competing against many other top Division I cheerleading programs across the nation.
The experience on Blue is very similar to a typical competitive cheerleading program, as we practice about three times per week and have around 4 performances per year. Practices are held on the basketball courts of Student Recreation & Fitness, the on-campus gym facility that is accessible to all fee-paying students.
There are no specific requirements to make the Blue team, however, the team is composed of the top 20 athletes. In the NCA Intermediate Division, we compete skills ranging from the typical all-star level 3 to level 6 skills. We recognize that some athletes may be stronger in one aspect of cheer rather than another, and take this into consideration when selecting the team!
The Orange team competes in the CO-ED Spirit Rally Division IA at NCA College Nationals. Their routine is composed of game day level stunting and tumbling skills. The Orange team practices twice per week and has around 4 performances per year. Although we are a competitive club sports team at the University of Florida, we have the honor of competing against many other top Division I cheerleading programs across the nation
Orange usually practices on Sunday evenings throughout the fall semester at Student Recreation & Fitness. As competition season approaches, an additional practice date is added. While the commitment required for this team is less intense, our athletes put in hard work and dedication to prepare their routines for competition.
There are no specific skill requirements to make the Orange team, however, they compete at levels equivalent to all-star cheer level 3 to level 6. The team is composed of 30 athletes and additonal alternates. Tumbling is not necessary for Orange, but prior cheer experience is highly recommended!

They perform and compete at all competitions and showcases the program attends, aside from NCA Nationals. This team practices once per week and does not does not require tumbling.
