Houston Texans Cheerleaders

The Houston Texans Cheerleaders are the official cheerleading squad of the Houston Texans of the National Football League. Although they are marketed as cheerleaders, they are actually a dance team. The group has been with the team since the team's inception in 2002.[1] The squad's tryouts were held at the Methodist Training Center from 2002 to 2019.[2][3] Since 2021, the squad hold auditions at the local gym called Texans Fit.[4] The group currently has 35 members.[5] Yearly, the squad releases a swimsuit calendar, having done so since 2008-2016. Currently they release as "sideline calendar" which features pictures of the cheerleaders on their game day activities.
