As members of the 2009-2010 Ohio State Cheerleading team, you are part of a group that is embracing an exciting transition in the history of the program. At the direction of the Athletic Department, a Spirit Advisory Board, comprised of alumni cheerleaders, Athletic Department members, and university staff, has been formed to support and guide a new generation of excellence in the cheerleading program. One element of this transition is a skills assessment of the current squad members.

The August 31 Evaluation (along with all cheerleading practices throughout the season) are closed to the public.

2009 August Evaluation for Ohio State Cheerleading Team:

The following changes made for the Cheerleading program at The Ohio State University have been discussed, reviewed and formulated in collaboration with the Spirit Advisory Board and the new coaching staff. These changes are supported by the Athletic Department and are not subject to change.
