Spirit Team Appearance Requests

Albert PartyThank you for your support of the UF Spirit Squads! The University of Florida Mascots, Cheerleaders, and Dazzlers enjoy making appearances for UF groups, local charities, and schools. These fees directly benefit our Spirit Team members by funding uniforms, travel, cleanings, refurbishments, and other expenses to help the UF Mascots, Cheerleaders, and Dazzlers represent the Gator Nation!

We do not appear at private parties or weddings. Due to our Travel Policy, we do not send spirit groups outside of Alachua County. You can book a birthday party with Albert or Alberta prior to a home Gator softball, or baseball game. You may also create an account to request an autographed poster to be mailed.
