Cheerleading tryout info

If you missed the informational cheerleading tryout meeting, be sure to stop in the office and pick up an application for tryouts. You will need this form to be able to attend the first day of clinics.


Senior cheerleading captain, Courtney Ellis, said she believes anyone who thinks they might enjoy the sport should attend.

“You should at least go to the clinics,” Ellis said. “If you find out you don’t like it while you’re there then you don’t have to tryout.”

Ellis added that you don’t necessarily have to be ultra peppy to be a cheerleader.

“Some people may think cheering isn’t their thing but it’s so much more than people realize,” Ellis said. “Most people believe you have to be super spirited all the time but that’s not the case. I’m not the most peppy person but my specialty is stunting. There’s a little bit of everything for anyone wanting to participate.”
