2020 PATRIOTS CHEERLEADERS AUDITIONS

Audition to become a cheerleader for the 6X Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots.

  • Make public appearances throughout New England in support of our communities' charitable organizations and local businesses
  • Perform for 65,000 fans during nationally televised games
  • Participate in photo shoots and experience travel opportunities

PATRIOTS CHEERLEADERS DANCE TEAM

The Patriots Cheerleaders dance team is required to attend a minimum of 2 rehearsals per week. They perform on the sidelines at Patriots home games, participate in public appearances and participate in photo shoots. Each candidate must be at least 18 years of age and be a high school graduate or have a GED by the date of preliminary auditions to participate. There is no age limit or height requirement.

To expedite the process, it is highly suggested that you complete an online application or you may apply day of auditions. When applied online, you'll receive an automated response confirming receipt. For full details, see preliminary audition requirements below.

PROMOTIONAL CHEERLEADERS

As part of our responsibility to the community and our team partners, public and game day appearances are an important squad role and we have assembled an elite squad for promotional appearances and event participation. Promotional Cheerleaders are non-performing squad members specifically chosen for their specialization in, and availability for, public and game-day appearances, and like the dance team, they participate in photo shoots as well. 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 Cheerleaders will be asked to attend some meetings with advanced notice. They are not required to participate in the dance round of auditions.

    - Color or black and white, Size 5 x 7 or larger
