Strong Athletic Ability
*Although we strongly recommend that athletes can meet these requirements, we also look for potential that we can develop. Previous cheerleading and gymnastics experience isn't required, but it obviously doesn't hurt!
**An example of a transition stunt: walk-in/toss liberty, cradle reload to extension or single-base/toss extension, retake to heel stretch. BE CREATIVE!!!
WHO CAN TRYOUT FOR BOSTON COLLEGE CHEERLEADING?
All individuals who meet the requirements are eligible to tryout. Incoming freshmen as well as Graduate students may tryout for Maroon or Gold squads.
GOLD & MAROON SQUADs: Members of the Gold and Maroon Squad attend all home football games, men's and women's basketball games, Big East and NCAA tournaments (if invited)**, and National Competition (if invited & administratively approved to attend)
**TRAVEL SQUADS: The coaching staff/administration reserve the right to select a designated Travel Squad for both the Gold and Maroon Squads at anytime. If selected, these Travel Squads will each consist of twelve cheerleaders who will travel to important Boston College Events which are held outside of campus.
