The Fall Season is quickly approaching and Tryouts are just around the corner!
This year Xaverian is excited to add a Varsity level team in addition to JV. The Cheerleading Coaches will be hosting one tryout for both teams.
Date: August 22, 2018
Time: 8:45am - 12pm
Location: Xaverian Cafeteria (enter on 71st side entrance)
→ please dress appropriately in athletic gear including sneakers and bring a water bottle
→ bring a copy of your medical
→ the team rosters will be posted at 1:30pm, all team members must stay for the uniform fitting at approximately 2pm.
The tryout will be straightforward and consist of a cheer, jump and short dance. To prepare for the tryout, everyone should be stretching daily! YouTube is a GREAT source to prep as well! Here are some examples for motions:
Remember that the goal of a cheerleader is to support their school, this means participating in school functions, football games, basketball games and our own cheer competitions! To prepare for these events both cheer teams will practice approximately 3 times per week. Being a Clipper Cheerleader requires a time commitment, as our season runs from late August to Mid March with hardly any breaks. Attendance is required in order to remain on either team. More details on expectations and requirements will be discussed at the parents meeting on 8/27.
Please note that Coaches and Judges may place the perspective cheerleader on the JV or Varsity team. However, no spaces on either team are guaranteed and grade level will not determine placement. With the addition of a Varsity Team, expectations will increase. This may mean, tumbling, jumps, strength and dedication. Please understand that these ARE things that everyone can work over the summer**
Since we are still on summer break, the tryout may coincide with some vacations and family plans, therefore we are allowing video submissions to be emailed as an alternative way to tryout for the 2018-2019 Clipper Cheer Season. Please email me, Coach Erin, directly as soon as possible if you are unable to attend tryouts because of a planned vacation. Video submissions must be submitted by August 17th. (email@example.com)
