Category 5 is the spirit programming committee that works to improve campus spirit and attendance at athletic events. Meetings begin in the fall, with pep-rallies and road trips being planned for the upcoming seasons. Get ready for the CANES!
Hurricane Force is the official student group of Miami athletics. Hurricane Force’s mission is to increase awareness and spirit surrounding all athletic contests at the University of Miami. Hence, bringing general school spirit on campus to new heights. Hurricane Force supports all ‘Cane teams and are rewarded for their dedication by receiving points and various levels of prizes when they attend home athletic events.
Hurricane Force is open for registered UM students only and FREE to join. UM students must have a valid ‘Cane ID/C-Number to acquire points.
UM students can join Hurricane Force just by attending the pre-determined events and scanning in at the student entrance or signing in at the Hurricane Force check-in table for events that don’t require students to scan in. After scanning/signing in with a valid ‘Cane ID/C-Number for the first time, students will start accumulating points and become a member of the group. Members will receive a confirmation e-mail upon joining Hurricane Force. * Note - You will not receive points for any event you attended prior to joining.
UM students can visit the Hurricane Force check-in table and accumulate points by signing in their name and C-Number. Check-in times will be announced during the pre-determined events and Hurricane Force members need to be in attendance prior to the end of check-in time of each sporting event to receive points. *Note - UM students will not need to sign in for football or basketball games because they have to swipe their ‘Cane ID to get into the event. Each student is entitled to scan only his/her ‘Cane ID and sign only his/her C-Number.
