Vandal Spirit Recruitment
Thank you for your interest in the Vandal Spirit Squad program. We are so excited that you have made University of Idaho your choice in furthering your education. We could not be more thrilled to welcome you to the Vandal Family.
The purpose of being a University of Idaho Spirit Squad Member is to promote and uphold the traditions and legacies of University of Idaho. The team’s three main goals are to promote University of Idaho, to support Vandal athletics and to work together in uniting fans at events.
The Vandal Spirit Squad involves three separate teams that work together as a cohesive unit: Joe Vandal, the Vandal Cheer team and the Vandal Gems. Being chosen as a member of the University of Idaho Spirit Squad is a privilege. Those interested in becoming a member of our program should understand, any person dedicated to the spirit program is making a deliberate and sincere commitment. Everyone's intent should be to continue elevating the program in the community, in the state and on a national scale.
Our coaching staff is always looking for quality individuals to act in the role of ambassador for the university. We are not only looking for athletes with a high skill level but also students with a strong academic focus and time management abilities. Each member’s top priority should be academics first and foremost. Team members selected should also expect to be active three to five days a week.
Scholarship opportunities vary depending on GPA, leadership skills, number of active years on the team and extra effort displayed. We offer merit-based scholarships, band class scholarships and other miscellaneous scholarships throughout the academic year.
Recruitment videos for Vandal Spirit are due Wednesday, March 1, 2024. We will notify candidates via email whether or not they have been invited to campus for the final round April 26-28, 2024.
