Team Member Information
The University of Akron has a few spirit groups, such as the nationally-ranked Akron Zips Cheerleaders, the Dance Team, the University of Akron Bands and the mascot Zippy. Each of these groups are key to the success if the Akron Zips athletics.
The Akron Zips cheerleaders and dance team strive to generate as much enthusiasm as possible from the Akron Zips fans. When the Zips Spirit Squads aren’t on the field riling up the crowds, they serve as University of Akron ambassadors at events such as fundraisers and charity events.
Zippy, the Akron Zips mascot, is right there alongside the Zips Cheerleaders at each UA game. Zippy is a kangaroo and was officially declared UA’s mascot on May 1, 1953. The first costume included a paper-mache head along with a brown furry uniform that zipped up the back.
The University of Akron Zips’ spirit squads are a delight to see and constantly strive to put on the best performance. The Zip’s Cheerleaders and Dance Team attend all home games and bowl games, so check out the University of Akron Zips athletic schedule to watch them in action.
