Note: You must be flexible in stunts. Mains need to side, sides need to main. Some bases will need to fly preps, shoulder stands, etc. Some backs will need to base and vice versa.
Do not use body lotion on the day of the tryouts, as it makes stunting dangerous.
Both male and female cheerleaders are encouraged to tryout!
We look forward to meeting you!
