The Raiderettes are in their seventh decade and, over the course of their history, have evolved from a team of high school majorettes to a top-flight professional cheerleading unit. Since their formation in 1961, the Raiderettes have graced the sidelines during Raiders home games and continue to be heavily involved in community outreach and maintain a presence at civic and corporate activities. The Raiderettes have performed near and far, including at Raiders International Series games, during overseas troop visits, on goodwill tours and Pro Bowls. In addition, the Junior Raiderette program offers an exciting opportunity for children and teens to participate in an on-field performance alongside “Football’s Fabulous Females.”
