Please note that 4:00 is the start time, so please have your athletes there 10-15 minutes early to check in! Parents, you will be dropping your athletes off. You will not be able to come into the building or watch tryouts, they will be closed tryouts! Please have your athlete come in a plain white t-shirt/tank top and dark (black or navy blue) shorts or leggings. Their hair should be up in a ponytail so that it is out of their faces. The only reason to not have their hair up in a ponytail is if their hair does not fit in a ponytail, in this case, it should be a half up half down. If your athlete owns a bow please have them wear it if not just hair in a ponytail. Athletic shoes or cheer shoes should be worn and absolutely no jewelry! Also, please make sure your athletes are wearing a mask! If your student is interested in trying out, please fill out and submit this Interest Form
