The co-ed “Wizards Dancers” will replace the previously all-female “Wizards Girls,” who entertained Washington Wizards fans during halftime and timeouts at every home game.

Auditions for the new squad will be held on Aug. 11. A new entertainment team called “Wizards Power Pack” will perform stunts and tumbling routines, while the Wiz Kids dance team, Secret Service Dunkers and mascot G-Wiz will all return for the 2018-19 season.

For the Washington Capitals, the to-be-named co-ed spirit squad will replace the Red Rockers, while mascot Slapshot will return.

The Wizards are the latest NBA team to introduce a co-ed dance team. In May, amid a series of high-profile complaints and lawsuits involving NFL cheerleaders, the San Antonio Spurs announced that they were disbanding their all-female Silver Dancers spirit squad after 26 years and replacing it with a 35-member “family-friendly” and co-ed hype team. Earlier this month, the Toronto Raptors held tryouts for a co-ed dance team.
