A long time, standing Baylor tradition since the 1920's, the Yell Leaders are spirit ambassadors for the University and Waco. They promote Baylor Spirit by performing at all home and away football games, all home basketball games, as well as volleyball games.
The Coed Yell Leaders are also given the opportunity to travel to the Big 12 Basketball Tournament, NIT, and NCAA Tournaments to cheer on our basketball teams. Although they are not a competitive cheer team, you can always find them on the sidelines of sporting events as well as events such as homecoming (www.baylor.edu/homecoming), pep rallies and community events throughout the year.
The Coed Yell Leaders typically practice twice a week in the evenings.
To help ensure that our spirit squad members remain healthy mentally/physically as well as help prevent injuries, our squad lifts weights and works out with two certified athletic trainers twice a week in the new Simpson Athletic Building.
Auditions are typically held in mid-April each year. All interested applicants will be required to attend at least ONE of our college prep clinics prior to auditioning for next season's team.
Please stay tuned for more info and details on both our auditions and college prep clinics.
