Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders are the official cheerleading squad of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League. The squad performs a variety of dance routines at Raymond James Stadium, the home of the Bucs, with the team's mascot Captain Fear. The squad debuted alongside the Buccaneers during their inaugural season. The squad was originally known as the SwashBucklers until 1998.


As of Tampa Bay's 2016 season, there are 27 members of the squad. Each year, the squad releases a swimsuit calendar. The group also has a "Junior Cheerleader" program. Before the Bucs' game against the Chicago Bears in Wembley Stadium in London, the squad taught a rugby union squad to play American football.


Though uniforms frequently change each season, the current uniform consists of gray and red tops, blackish-grey flat boots and short skirts. The squad has also worn alternate designs, such as a halter top with an armband, as well as football jerseys or "bucs" tops with shorts. The squad at times have also worn alternate jerseys.

During the squad's early years, the uniforms were colored orange, white and red after the team's original colors.
