Evaluations will be based upon the follow criteria:
- All cheerleaders trying out will be required to learn a cheer, a chant, and a dance.
- All cheerleaders will be required to demonstrate several jumps (toe touch, pike, and front hurdler).
Tumbling is not a necessity, but is a bonus. (If you tumble, you will be asked to demonstrate your best standing skill, and your best running tumbling pass, the minimum skills considered tumbling are standing back handspring, and round-off back handspring.)
Stunting ability: We understand that everyone has certain positions they fee most comfortable, but you may be asked to try something new and/or difference.
