Bridgewater is a Division III member of the NCAA and a member of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC). Our cheerleading program is one of the best in the ODAC. We are very proud of how our program has continued to grow and mature throughout the past few years. With a season that continues year-round, we cheer in the fall for football with 18-23 members on the squad, in the winter for basketball with 12-13 cheerleaders at each home game. We also make appearances at local community events.  

We are always looking for ways to improve our  cheerleading program, and by bringing in new talent, we keep the squad updated while continuing to represent Bridgewater traditions. We need members who are dedicated and willing to work hard. College is an important part in a student's life, and cheerleading only adds to that experience.
