How We Work

The Lincoln College Cheerleading Team is made up of both male and female athletes. All members will cheer all home basketball games for both the Men and Women’s teams. Cheerleaders will be assigned to cheer at women’s games by dividing the squad in half, creating the Purple Team and the Black Team. These groups will alternate cheering at women’s games. In addition to cheering at games, the team will make public appearances, performances, fundraisers, and philanthropy events throughout the year. The entire team is required to attend morning and evening practices 2-4 times a week.


The Cheerleading Team’s primary purpose is to support Lynx Athletics. We stand as ambassadors and strive to represent Lincoln College in a positive way. We work to create a fun, energetic, and entertaining atmosphere at all home games.

We are looking for people who are dedicated to improving themselves as well as the people around them. Cheering at Lincoln College is a commitment, but can provide rewarding outcomes for those who are passionate about what we do.

We do not make competing our top priority; however, it is a goal that we strive towards every year. To get there, our team must first achieve on the sideline and in the classroom. Each year we create routines to perform during halftime but our ability level and funding determines if we compete in a collegiate competition.
