Simpson Dance

The Storm Spirit Squads perform at all home football and basketball games.  They participate in many campus activities throughout the year including Simpson’s homecoming pep rally “Yell Like Hell,” a watermelon feed for the football team and youth spirit clinics.  This year more than ever, the Cheerleaders and Dancers have been the face of Simpson and participate in many community service activities throughout the academic year, such as Meals for the Heartland and Race for the Cure.  At Simpson, the spirit squads are an extension of the athletic department—it’s exciting for team members to be involved in something they love at the collegiate level.
