Welcome to the Bemidji State University Cheer Team informational site! We perform on the ice at the Sanford Center, as well as in the stands during all home games and are excited to announce that we are hoping to expand to include a BSU Football Cheer team for the fall of 2014. We cheer because we love the sport, love skating, and have pride in our school and its traditions.
If you are interested in trying out for the BSU hockey or football cheer teams or would like any additional information, please download the informational packets and submit appropriate information or respond to the corresponding email addresses with any questions.

FOOTBALL CHEER HISTORY/TRYOUT INFO
The exact date is unknown, but cheerleaders started appearing on the field in the 1940’s and were joined in the 1960’s by some of the men from Bemidji State’s Gymnastics Team.
As a cheer team member, you are a very visible representative of not only the football team, but the school, and the state of Minnesota. As such, you are an ambassador for Bemidji State, and you will be expected to conduct yourself accordingly on and off the field. You will be expected to be at scheduled practices, all home games, special appearances and community events, and on-campus events as well. Just like the student athletes in the other sports programs, the cheer team members must maintain high academic standards and carry a full credit load in order to participate. Because of these high standards, we are looking for hard-working, dedicated, and committed individuals who are willing to work hard in an effort to engage the fans at every football game.
HOCKEY CHEER HISTORY/TRYOUT INFO
Hockey cheer started at Bemidji State in 1967 with the completion of the BSU Fieldhouse (later renamed the John S. Glas Fieldhouse). The program ran through the 1996-97 hockey season. The team was reinstated last year with great success, and we are looking forward to next year!
We are looking for hard-working, dedicated, and committed young women who are willing to work hard in an effort to support our hockey team and engage the fans. Team tryouts are in the spring (April or May). Team size ranges from 6-16 members. Our team members come from diverse backgrounds in everything from figure skating and dance to gymnastics and hockey.
If you are interested in the hockey cheer team, but still have some questions, submit them to email@example.com along with information from the hockey cheer interest form below. Someone will be in contact with you to answer any questions you may have.
ABOUT THE COACHES
My name is Glory Loebs and I am one of the coaches of the Bemidji State hockey cheer team. I cheered for BSU during the 1996-1997 season. A season that ended in a NCAA Division II national championship! Cheering at BSU was awesome experience, and one that I will never forget. Prior to cheering at BSU, I cheered for four years for the Bemidji High School Lumberjacks' hockey team. Being from Bemidji, I grew up watching Beaver hockey, so when the opportunity presented itself for me to take on coaching the cheer team, I couldn’t say no!
I currently live in Bemidji with my husband Chris and our 4 children: Ashton, Abygail, Adam, and Anthony.
I can't wait for the next season to start! Go Beavers!
My name is Monica Hasbargen and I am the Bemidji State hockey cheer team's On Ice Skills coach. Prior to coaching I had figure skated for 11 years through the International Falls Figure Skating Club. During my senior year of high school the club's board gave me the opportunity to become a full time coach. After 7 years of mentoring, I gladly accepted.
After graduating from Falls High School and two years of Rainy River Community College's post-secondary enrollment option in 2010, I transferred to Bemidji State University. I started coaching figure skating for the Bemidji Figure Skating Club and have been there for 3 years, while substitute coaching for Bagley's and Int'l Falls' figure skating clubs. My student's ages range from 3 years old through 23 years old, of all very different ability levels.
I started coaching with Glory to help resurrect the legacy of hockey cheer at Bemidji State, to continue my education in coaching, and to meet all of the fascinating people who are involved with Bemidji State's athletics. My goal for this team is to develop the skating skills of this team (both individual and synchronized skills), and to make sure stunts are done correctly and safely on ice.
I am a student at Bemidji State with a major in elementary education, middle school mathematics endorsement, psychology minor, and a coaching certificate. I will be student teaching in the fall of 2013. During my years at Bemidji State I met my wonderful fiance', Tyler. He studies at Oak Hills Christian College with a major in youth ministries.
Let the 2013-2014 season begin! Go Beavers!
We will strive to provide spirit, enthusiasm, and entertainment on the ice and in the stands. We will be ambassadors of our school, our town, and the state of Minnesota. We aspire to grow as individuals and as a team through community involvement, scholastic achievement and the innovation of our sport. We will represent ourselves as role models and leaders in our community. We will create new traditions, while hanging on to the old ones. We will restore the legacy that is Bemidji State Hockey Cheerleading. GO BEAVERS!
