The Warrior Girls, under the direction of Shelby Alexander, have rehearsals twice a week. Rehearsals usually consist of a cardiovascular workout and a weight training regimen before the actual dancing begins. On game nights, the Warrior Girls meet two hours prior to tipoff, where they put the finishing touches on their routines for the evening. They are then served a catered meal in their dressing room and have a hair and makeup artist assist them with pregame preparations.
Dancing runs through the veins of many of the Warrior Girls. Many of them have been dancing since they were five years old. Their dance experience ranges from jazz, tap, ballet and lyrical, to funk, hip-hop, Hawaiian hula, modern and African dance. In addition to their dancing careers, many of the women on the squad are either attending school, working or both.
The Warrior Girls also have team photo cards that are available to all of their fans. As the start of selected games, the Warrior Girls are on hand to meet their fans and sign autographs.
Throughout the course of the season, the Warrior Girls perform at many community events and charity fundraisers, as well as paid appearances.
