Cheerleading Team

Season Outlook

Cheerleading provides opportunities for Pierce College students to express their creativity, build teamwork, and encourage the athletic efforts of their peers. The Raider Cheerleading squad performs at all basketball games - men's and women's, home and away - bringing their spirit to the court. They also support the teams at all major functions. The cheerleading program is funded through Student Programs. The squad also undertakes its own fundraising efforts.
