CREW

When it comes to spirit, nobody tops the CREW!

This co-ed group has 8-10 members that keep the crowd pumped up during both football and basketball games. When you see the UCO flags running the field before each football game and at every touchdown, you’re cheering along with the CREW.

Tryouts

Tryouts for the 2020-21 CREW will be held in August 2020. More information will be available in summer 2020.

If you think you’ve got the spirit, we invite you to join our team!
