Welcome to Bridgewater College Cheerleading! Bridgewater is a Division III member of the NCAA and a member of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC). This program operates under Head Coach Tyler Bradley and Jennifer Cooper, and is an integral part of BC Athletics. As visual ambassadors to the College, we believe in a creating and maintaining well-rounded athletes, who challenge not only their athletic ability, but their leadership qualities as well. The Bridgewater College experience is unique, and the Cheerleading program has the opportunity to shape the spirits and traditions culture for all students.

The cheerleading team is comprised of roughly 25 student-athletes, who cheer at the following athletic events: football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball. Members of the BC Cheerleading squad will be required to support those athletic teams. All cheerleaders must maintain good academic standing and have at least a 2.0 GPA. In addition to practices, games, and events, all cheerleaders will be required to participate in a weight-lifting program with the BC strength and conditioning staff and be an integral member to school pride functions.
