Bluffton is joining a select number of schools offering competitive Cheer/STUNT. 

Incoming first-year and transfer students and current Bluffton students are encouraged to tryout for this exciting opportunity on April 6.

New students must be accepted to Bluffton University to be invited to join the cheer and/or cheer/STUNT programs.

Those trying out will be taught a dance and short cheer, and will stunt with Bluffton’s current basketball squad with time for open tumbling. Preference will be given to those with at least three years of All-Star cheer or stunt experience. However, a good attitude and willingness to learn will be factored in. 

During its inaugural year, beginning fall 2019, Bluffton’s cheer/STUNT team will compete against other NCAA DII and DIII schools from across the Midwest and in NCAA STUNT competitions.
