Program overview
Fisher College has two cheerleading squads; Competition and Game Day (see below for details and
descriptions.) The team is an integral part of the fan experience at all home men’s and women’s
basketball games. The season will run from August through April where various nights and weekends
will be mandatory.
How to prepare
Get your application in to the college as soon as possible to insure that you are accepted to attend
school here. Next, make sure you are in top physical condition. Our cheerleading team regularly
participates in cardiovascular workouts and lifts weights. We do this to improve talent as well as insure
safety and the reduction of injury.
If you are planning on campus visit, please feel free to schedule a meeting with the coaching staff email

Tryout procedure
Tryouts will be held April 27th, 2013 @ Union Gym, 48 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02116. *If you are
unable to attend tryouts contact Coach Mantenuto to set up a personal tryout or submit a video(see

process will aid the coaching in choosing the best all-around teams.
*Fisher College’s program is arranged so that a cheerleader may be moved from one squad to the other
depending on necessity, commitment and skill.
