About the Cheerleaders
Previously known as the SwashBucklers, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleaders completed a transformation in 1999, along with the rest of the organization. The name was changed to forge a stronger association with the football team which, since its purchase by Malcolm Glazer in 1995, the introduction of new colors and logos in 1997 and the opening of Raymond James Stadium in 1998, had become one of the NFL’s strongest and most recognized franchises.
Every year, 28-34 extraordinary women are selected to represent the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of hundreds of candidates. These talented women include athletes, educators, business professionals, full-time students, and dedicated mothers. As a Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleader, the ladies are consistently busy rehearsing, performing, and volunteering for community events and appearances. The squad makes approximately 300 community appearances every year for both non-profit organizations and corporate events. The ladies are actively involved in the community relations activities and programs generated by the organization. Additionally, the team is invited to serve as ambassadors for the NFL across the country and overseas on various military tours, bringing smiles to the men and women who valiantly serve the United States.
The talented women of this truly elite squad are dedicated professionals and ambassadors for the team. To be a part of the group is a tremendous accomplishment. As well, the ladies gain rewarding, lifetime experiences. They are like no other group…they are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders.
