About the Team: Cheerleading for the Fighting Falcons is a Club Sport that falls under the Department of Intramurals & Recreation at Fairmont State. Tryouts are held each semester, or as needed, and all current full-time students enrolled in Fairmont State University are eligible to tryout.
The team cheers at all home varsity football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball games. In addition, the cheerleaders also travel to some away games, including conference championships and playoff games. They also support other varsity sports at various times during the season and make community appearances throughout the year. The Fairmont State University cheerleaders are a self-funded program and the leadership for the team comes from the students themselves.
