The University of Memphis Athletic Department supports and directs the Spirit Squads. The goals and objectives of the squads are:
1. To be exemplary representatives of the University of Memphis.
2. To appear at University activities, games, functions, programs and philanthropic events and represent the University at local, state, and national functions as well.
3. To raise the level of public support for the University.
4. To increase fan support at athletic events as cheerleaders, dancers, and mascots.

The U of M Spirit Program consists of a Varsity Coed Squad (6-8 male and 6-8 female members); Varsity All-Girl squad (20-22 female members), Dance team (24 female students) and the Tiger mascot -- Pouncer. All squads perform at all home Footbll games, two away games, men's and women's basketball games, volleyball games, and National competitions.
