Welcome to The Cockpit

This is your hub for everything related to experiencing the excitement of Gamecock Athletics as a student here at the University of South Carolina.

What is The Cockpit?

Through their dedication, support and energy, South Carolina students have shown that they’re the best student fans in all of college athletics. The Cockpit, the official student section of all of Gamecock Athletics, allows all University of South Carolina students to unite together under one identity to bring their passion to a new level while supporting the Gamecocks.

Rules of The Cockpit

  1. On Your Feet: Our crowds feed of the energy of The Cockpit. Make sure you’re up and making noise all game long.
  2. Arrive Early: We need The Cockpit there from the moment the venue opens to after the alma mater!
  3. Be Loud: Whether it’s before the game, in the beginning of the game or late in the game, we want to hear you!
  4. Use Props: Whether it’s a rally towel, noise maker, big head, or some other prop, make sure you use it.
