Cheerleaders

History

The Full Cheerleader Story Cheerleader Alumni Website
WRC Fashion Trends Pro Bowl Cheerleaders
First Ladies of Football

From the Redskinettes to the First Ladies of Football, the Redskins Cheerleaders are the longest running cheerleading team in the NFL. Founded in 1962, and originally named the Redskinettes, this team has brought worldwide recognition to the Washington, D.C. area, the Redskins football team, and the NFL.

Partnered with the largest and most prominent Alumni Association among cheerleading teams--in 2008 over 1,000 strong--the women who have cheered and continued to support the Redskins have also helped raise millions since the team's inception and support more charities and community events every year.

In the most powerful city in the world, the most popular professional sports team is only a part of FedExField. The Washington Redskins Cheerleaders are growing across the country and around the world. They are lighting up the airwaves and the media with new routines, uniforms, attitudes and have raised the bar of excellence for every other NFL cheerleading squad.

Adorned in burgundy and gold, flanking the field on every side and executing routines that would make even the fastest football player gasp for air, these ladies strive for one thing--to make a difference.

The Legacy

The Washington Redskins Cheerleaders are one of the oldest active cheerleading organizations in the NFL. On September 30, 1962, 30 talented and beautiful women made their debut as the Redskinettes. As they marched down the field to join the band, they stepped into history and the tradition began. In their 45-year history, these ladies have become the most talented, innovative and personable in the NFL.

In the early 1980s, the Redskins Cheerleaders toured China to promote American-made products; toured Turkey, Italy, Sicily, Spain and France as part of the USO; filmed TV commercials for Sassoon and Barbara Ellen; were featured on the David Letterman's Top 10 list, won the ESPN celebrity pool tournament and also won the Battle of the Cheerleaders. They have been featured in National magazines such as Newsweek, FHM, Ebony, Black Hair Magazine, Salon One, Cosmopolitan, Maxim and Sports Illustrated; performed with Country Grammy award winner Gretchen Wilson, Latin sensation Ricky Martin, Larry King, Jerry Lee Lewis, James Brown, M.C. Hammer, Joan Jet, Wale, K.C. and the Sunshine Band, the Pointer Sisters and Nancy Reagan. They have filmed two E! Channel specials, are the stars of Comcast SportsNet show "Beauties on the Beach", are the Champions from the battle of the NFL Cheerleaders at the 2007 Super Bowl and were featured on the NFL Networks Cheerleader Challenge. Men's Journal called the 2007 squad the Best in the NFL and Michael Strahan wrote in his book that the Redskins Cheerleaders are the Hottest in the NFL.


The First Ladies of Football have been supported by Armed Forces Entertainment to complete 55 and counting International Tours to entertain and bring a piece of home to military men, women and children. Beautiful, modest, intelligent and passionate about their commitment to charity and community, these ladies have established themselves as the premier squad in the NFL.
