Spirit Squad

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.

Our athletic department mission calls us to foster "champions today, and leaders tomorrow" and is deeply rooted in Sooner M.A.G.I.C.  These values (Masterful, Accountable, Gracious, Inclusive and Competitive) guide our day to day interactions with each other.

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.
