Commented Jorie Brown, Head Coach, Argos Cheerleaders, “Last year’s cheer season left our team with everlasting memories and unforgettable experiences. Performing alongside Canadian artists like Jarvis Church and Karl Wolf, dancing in front of thousands of diehard Argos fans during the regular season, and then more than 50,000 fans at the 100th Grey Cup game was truly exhilarating. We’re looking for young women who are professional, driven, personable and strong performers and embrace a healthy and well balanced lifestyle to come out and have a chance to experience the thrill of being a member of the Argos Cheerleaders!”
The Argos Cheerleaders are Toronto’s most established and exciting cheer team. They energize the hometown crowd at Rogers Centre, participate in meaningful charity work throughout the GTA and act as a role model for many young girls.
