The Northern Kentucky University Cheerleaders are an integral part of the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics, the University, and the Northern Kentucky community. The cheerleaders pride themselves in their goals to promote school spirit and support for NKU, and to encourage positive crowd participation at Norse athletic events. Additionally, the cheerleaders are involved with many activities on campus and in the community. The cheerleaders compete annually at the Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) National Collegiate Cheerleading Competition at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The Norse have earned Small Coed Division II National Championships in 2006, 2007, 2009 & 2010! NKU Cheer finished 5th in 2013 competing for the first time in UCA Division I Small Coed.
