McKendree PomCats

2014 PomCats


The McKendree PomCats are a talented and dedicated group of dancers who support McKendree University through their spirit, skill, and presence at campus events. As members of the Marching Bearcat Band, the PomCats maintain a rigorous schedule throughout the year, performing at football games, parades, events and band functions as required during the fall. Practices and performances continue into the spring, when the team appears at home basketball games, parades, and competitions.

Practices are held 3 times a week on campus, which include learning new choreography, practicing technique, and working on strength, endurance and flexibility.  Because of the large amount of routines performed every year, practices are mandatory and classes/other activities should be scheduled around dance commitments. Fundraising will take place throughout the year to keep costs low, to supplement our University funding.  The team attends a collegiate-level camp in the summer, and part of the Marching Bearcat Band Camp before school begins.  

Schedule a visit with the PomCats by contacting Coach Katy! Visit us on October 25th, 2014 for our homecoming festivities!!!
