Rules and Policies
Arkansas Razoraback Spirit Squad Philosphy
The University of Arkansas Spirit Squad program is a student activity. As a student activity, its first and foremost responsibility to the student is to support and not to compromise the student’s academic career. Secondly, the program should aid in developing the student participant into a responsible, mature and independent adult. Specifically, the program is a means of improving the student’s mental and physical well being. Cheerleading and Pom Squad are activities where the student will be provided leadership training, develop the ability to make decisions, enhance the ability to respond to life’s situations, will contribute to social development and generally will maximize the opportunity for student growth, change and maturity.

The primary purpose of the Spirit Squads is to be a member of the team, which has as its goal the support of intercollegiate athletics and the University of Arkansas. The support is directed into two major areas, as follows:
Cheerleading Squads: to lead the cheers; to raise the level of fan support for intercollegiate athletics; to lead in positive local support for the team; to project that support and solicit that support from Razorback fans and to participate in the athletic activity known as cheerleading by performing partner stunts, motions, pyramids, and gymnastics.
Pom Squad: to support the cheerleaders as they lead cheers; to raise the level of fan support for intercollegiate athletics; to lead in positive local support for the team; to project that support and solicit that support from Razorback fans and to support the cheerleaders in cheerleading activity and to perform the activity known as dance; to perfect this athletic activity for keeping the crowd attention/direction focused on the field/floor where the intercollegiate activity is taking place, and for entertainment purposes during pre-game, time-outs, halftimes, and other appropriate times and for competitive purposes. Cheerleaders, Pom squad members, and mascots serve as public relations ambassadors of intercollegiate athletics and the University of Arkansas, to uphold, reflect and project the goals and ideals of the University; to appear at University activities, functions and programs, at charitable and public causes and to promote intercollegiate athletics and the University of Arkansas.
