USC Spirit Leaders

USC Student Affairs


    The USC Spirit Leaders are an integral part of school spirit at all Trojan athletic events. The Spirit Leaders are a co-ed squad responsible for leading stadium wide chants and increasing crowd participation at Trojan football, basketball, volleyball, water polo, soccer, lacrosse and baseball games.


    USC Spirit Leaders are confident, athletic, and enthusiastic students who proudly represent the University of Southern California.

Fight On, Trojans!

Thank you for visiting our page!

The USC Spirit Leaders are ambassadors of the University with strong leadership skills and outgoing personalities. The primary responsibility of a USC Spirit Leader is to lead cheers and yells by engaging the crowd at various events throughout the year, including USC athletics, orientations, and more.  They are able to recite, teach and/or lead the Fight Song, So-Cal Spell Out, Alma Mater, and other chants at any time, and have an abundance of Trojan Pride.

Are you the loudest in your group at USC football and basketball games? Are you constantly leading your friends in cheers?

You just might have what it takes to be a USC Spirit Leader! Find out at tryouts, which are held at the end of the fall semester.

2019 Auditions are approaching! Come show your Trojan Pride and audition to join our team. More information available under the “TRYOUT” tab.

If you appreciate the dedication and hard work of the USC Spirit Leaders, and would like to show your financial support, please consider making a pledge or a gift. While the Spirit Leaders are primarily funded by the University, donations are vital to continuing the growth of the program.

Donations have been used to help defray the rising costs of travel, uniforms, and equipment. Any gift or pledge can greatly help the Spirit Leaders maintain an enthusiastic environment at all Trojan athletic events.
