Tryout Process: All tryout material will be taught to you during the clinic on Saturday, including the following: Sideline chants, cheer, fight song and a dance. You will also be assessed on jumps and tumbling (not required but highly recommended). Informal judging will begin on Saturday during the clinic. Cuts will be made at the end of the day Saturday if necessary. Tryouts are closed to the public.

On Sunday, all tryout participants will perform all learned material for a panel of judges and coach in small groups. Judges will score tumbling at this time as well. Everyone must remain present the entire time during the tryout process. There is the potential you will be called back to perform for the judges again if necessary.

Tryout Attire: Black athletic or spandex style shorts, black sports bra, white athletic shoes. Hair should be worn half up/down with a red bow. No jewelry. Tattoos must be covered. Clothing worn must be free of school names or logos. Please come with a gameday-ready appearance -- you will be judged on appearance and overall image.  

The first team appearance will be April 25, 2015 at the Claussen-Leahy Run & Walk. This event is mandatory. More information will be provided to the selected team members.
