About Denver Broncos Cheerleaders
In 2022, the members of the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders divided more than 1,500 hours of civic involvement among 100 Colorado organizations. Many associations, including Children's Hospital Colorado, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, and Food Bank of the Rockies, were supported and visited by members of last year's team.
For the 2023 season, the squad will continue to promote a few long-standing causes important to the team. Our Junior Cheer program promotes self-esteem, discipline, and Broncos pride in girls ages 6 to 12. Since 2008, the Dare to Cheer program, in partnership with the Global Down Syndrome Foundation, invites young men and women with disabilities to share in the joy of Broncos football and dancing. The Cheer for the Troops campaign continues to be a benchmark initiative in support of our US military, both locally and abroad. Since 2003, members of the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders have toured military bases in Egypt, Cuba, Iraq, Afghanistan, Italy, Guam, Hawaii, Kwajalein, Japan and Australia performing their 90-minute show to boost the troops' morale and thank them for their service to our country.
Entering their 31st season, the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders are one of the premier teams in the National Football League. The Broncos brought cheerleaders back in 1993 after a 17-year absence and are proud of the work the team does both on the field and, more importantly, in the community. The Broncos Cheerleaders are selected through auditions held each spring. In 2023, more than 200 women tried out for the 28 available positions. Auditions focus primarily on dance ability; however, appearance, personal accomplishments, football knowledge, and community involvement also are contributing factors.
Known for their distinctive western uniforms, the Cheerleaders wear long leather chaps and jackets in the fall months, skiwear for cold games, and a more traditional leather skirt and vest in the summer months. The three uniform changes give the group flexibility with the rapidly changing Colorado weather.
