Mascot and Cheer Appearance Requests

Thank you for your support of the Villanova mascot and cheer program! Our mascots and cheerleaders are full-time students who love to interact with crowds and our community. All appearances must be requested and submitted via the online form a minimum of three weeks in advance of the event date.

Due to athletic events, university events, academics, time restrictions and travel distance, appearances at outside events are only available on a limited basis.

Time Restrictions
Will D. Cat will need a 10-15 minute break per hour. Food and bottled water must be available for both the mascot and the handler.

Changing Room Requirements
Will D. Cat will need a secure place to change. This changing room must be communicated in advance of the event.

Parking Accommodations
Reasonable parking for Will D. Cat and/or cheer must be provided.

Photos and Branding Policy
Villanova University assumes no liability in connection with mascot and cheer appearances. As a condition of the appearance at your event, you agree to hold harmless and indemnify Villanova University and the Mascot from any claims that may arise out of the appearance. By requesting the mascot and/or cheer at your event you grant permission for the mascot team to take and use pictures and videos from the event.

There is a general fee and a transportation fee. To calculate the transportation fee, please use Villanova University as the starting point and your event location as the destination (round trip).

Payment may be made by cash or check. Please make checks payable to "Villanova University." Please mail all cash and checks to:
Janine Shao - Marketing
Villanova University Athletics
800 Lancaster Avenue
Villanova, PA 19085

Payment must be received at least one week prior to the date of the event. There will be a $50 late fee added if payment is made after that time. If payment is not received before the event, the appearance may be cancelled. If your event is cancelled and we are notified in writing within 3 days of the event, your fee will be refunded.
