Junior Spirit Squad

Junior Spirit Squad cheerleader showing her enthusiasm Updated Spirit Squad uniforms

Now in its eighth season, UCLA’s Junior Spirit Squad is an opportunity for Bruins ages 3 to 18 to participate in cheering at UCLA games. With our team of student coaches, our youngest fans have the chance to get out on the field and court and feel what makes being a Bruin so special.

Junior Spirit Squad members will play a part in UCLA basketball, volleyball, football and gymnastics events during the 2018-2019 athletics season.

New Junior Spirit Uniform Design for the 2018-2019 Season

In July 2017, UCLA Athletics partnered with Under Armour to update their logo and official blue. To ensure that the Junior Spirit Squad compliments the Spirit Squad and UCLA Athletics, each Junior Spirit participant will wear a new uniform this season!

Our new design for the girls will be an all-inclusive dress. This one-piece will be more comfortable with a V-neck and no more lost briefs or misplaced liners. The design for the boys will look just like the male cheerleaders.

Registration for returning and new squad members for the 2018-2019 season includes one uniform, poms for the girls and a megaphone for the boys, a personalized bow, and a clear bag. Returning families will still receive a discount to thank you for your loyalty to the program.

Uniform Fitting Day Schedule

It is critical for all squad members to attend in an effort to ensure proper fitting with the new uniform designs. Old uniforms will not be worn for any performances.
