Sports Cheerleaders

The Oakland Raiderettes

The professional cheerleading squad that performs for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League or the NFL in their home matches and the cheerleading squad gives the audience an intense energy to feed on, which they harvest to create one of the best atmospheres for the home team and spur them on in their quest for glory. This cheerleading squad for the Raiders was formed way back in 1961 and the name that they adopted then is the one that they still use. Only when the Raiders relocated to Los Angeles did the cheerleading squad become the Los Angeles Raiderettes but after the team shifted its baser back to Oakland in 1995, the squad took up its old moniker once again. During their time in Oakland as well as in Los Angeles, the Raiderettes have been hailed as the ''Fabulous Females'' of football.

The current coaching staff of the Oakland Raiderettes includes Jeanette Thompson as the director, who has been appointed just before the start of the 2011 season and takes over from Shawna Zimmerman, who in her turn had replaced Vandana Patel back in 2010. The longest serving director for the Raiderettes so far has been Karen Kovac who served the squad as choreographer as well as director between the 2003 and 2009 seasons.

Many former cheerleaders, who started their careers with the Oakland Raiderettes, have gone on to become a star in their own rights after quitting cheerleading. Some of them are Erica Arana, who became a famous model as well as actress after her cheerleading career was over, Jeanette Thompson, the current director, was a former Raiderette herself and she became a Behind the Shield reporter after she retired. Paige Green, another actress was also a former member of the Raiderette squad.
