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 OU Spirit Program is to support the mission of The University of Oklahoma Athletics Department by generating crowd enthusiasm, serving as ambassadors to The University of Oklahoma and the Norman community, and having fun while maintaining the traditions of those who have come before us.

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!
