Cheer and Stunt


It's a whole new year for the UW-Platteville Cheer & Stunt Team. Following an extremely busy and successful year of games, competitions and performances the program continues to grow while representing the Pioneer community with pride and spirit. The team is made up of full-time students, (12 or more credits) in good standing in the university.

This year, under the direction of Head Coach Suraya Mattoon the team is looking to expand. For the second year, the Pioneer Cheer and Stunt team will have two teams. Both teams will cheer for the football season as a singular unit, however during the basketball season; there will be two squads, both cheering for men's and women's games. There will also be a competition team featuring the cheering, dancing, stunting and tumbling skills of the athletes.

Throughout the year members of the Squad cheer for home football and basketball games as well as some away games. They also participate in Alumni functions, Pep Rallies and Homecoming events, including the homecoming parade and the annual Homecoming Yell Volleyball game. The Cheer and Stunt Team athletes are active members of PSAAC and the O-Zone.

This year the Pioneer Sparkles, an inclusive Cheer Team for individuals with disabilities, continues to cheer at football and basketball games throughout the season.
