On behalf of the Stephen F. Austin State University Spirit Program, it gives me great pleasure to welcome all new recruits. SFA provides spirit team members the opportunity to learn and prosper in their chosen team under the guidance of some of the most knowledgeable and successful coaches in the country. While the SFA Spirit Programs primary goal is to win a national championship, we also strive for success in the classroom and the Nacogdoches community.
As spirit teams, our primary focus is to support the SFA Athletic Department through performance/crowd involvement at athletic events. These performances should take priority to competing until all events are over and we have our season - NCA/NDA Collegiate Nationals.
We promise to do our best to provide you with the programs and services that will assist you in earning your degree and developing your mind and body to compete on the college level while doing so in an atmosphere of sportsmanship and compliance.
Spirit teams demands a serious commitment and it also requires long hours of dedication and perseverance. Such commitment is recognized and appreciated by the entire SFA community. We hope you will join the hundreds of spirit team members who, through the years, have enjoyed and enhanced the traditions of the SFA Spirit Program.
I wish you success and encourage you to take a deeper look at the SFA Spirit Program as your next home away from home.

Axe 'Em Jacks!
