Saint Mary's Spirit Team
The Saint Mary's College Spirit Team is a combination team of dance and cheer. The team performs dance routines at halftimes and timeouts and cheers during timeouts and on the endlines during men's and women's basketball games. They cheer at other home games as well including soccer and volleyball. The Spirit Team also works within the community-- attending events with the College, reading to children in the community, and performing at children's birthday parties.
How To Join The Spirit Team
Tryout dates for the 2017-18 season: TBD
The typical Spirit Team roster is comprised of 12-16 members. The program's director is Cassandra (Gutierrez) Nguyen, a former Gael & San Francisco 49ers Gold Rush member.
The Spirit Team is expected to attend all practices, games and events assigned. They travel with the men's and women's basketball teams to the West Coast Conference tournament and NCAA tournament (when applicable). Because of the highly demanding schedule, members of the Spirit Team must be able to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.5, balance and coordinate all schedules and potential missed class time. Members of the Spirit Team are seen as the face of the College and must emanate the mission of the College.
