PATRIOTS CHEERLEADERS PROMOTIONAL MODELS

As part of our responsibility to the community and our team partners, public and game day appearances are an important squad role. We have assembled an elite squad for promotional appearances and event participation. A Patriots Cheerleader promotional model is a non-performing squad member specifically chosen for her specialization in, and availability for, public and game-day appearances. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age and must be a high school graduate or have a GED by the date of final auditions to participate. There is no age limit or height requirement. Promotional models will be asked to attend some rehearsals with advanced notice. They make appearances throughout the stadium on game days and participate in photo shoots. Promotional models are not required to compete in the dance round of the auditions.  

Application Requirements:

  • 3 photos
    - Color or black and white
    - Size 5 x 7 or larger
    - One full length and one headshot should be included
