Cheer Tryout Information

Cheer hosts tryout sessions each spring and fall to assess the skills, abilities, and potential of interested and qualified candidates. Tryouts are intended to showcase a candidate's technical abilities, skills and showmanship, as well as determine the structure and needs of the team. A short interview with the candidate may be conducted at any time during the tryout.
