Sooner Spirit

Welcome to the OU Spirit Program! Our program includes OU Cheer (co-ed and all-girl), OU Pom, our costumed mascots (Boomer and Sooner), the RUF/NEKS, and the historic Sooner Schooner.

The purpose of the Spirit Program is to support the athletic teams at the University of Oklahoma by generating crowd enthusiasm and actively engaging with our fans. Our members believe deeply in their role as ambassadors of the University and represent OU at a variety of alumni, civic, and charitable events and are committed to displaying a positive and collegiate image at all times that reflects the values and traditions of the University of Oklahoma.

Spirit Camps

The National Cheerleaders Association and the University of Oklahoma began a partnership in 1953 by offering cheerleader and drill-team camps on the OU campus. Information on our summer 2016 camps coming soon!
