    Tryouts will be an abridged process this year due to changes in the district and timing. There will be 2.5 days of intensive “camp” and then tryouts the afternoon of the third day. During this time, your student will learn new cheers, chants and a dance.  Then they will be asked in groups to create a new cheer. They will also learn the proper techniques for jumps and stunting.  The last afternoon will be the final tryout. Students will try-out in groups of two or three.  In their assigned group, they will perform for a panel of judges who will score the students with a rubric. If a student has tumbling, they will perform it individually, and this will be judged in addition to their overall score.


    Please read over the Cheer Handbook and Parent Letter found here to see if this is a commitment you are willing to make. Students MUST have a current physical and information form prior to participation in tryouts. Additionally students that plan on trying out should have 2 current teacher recommendations (found here) completed before tryouts.


    If you have any additional questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to Coach Kymberly Showers at kjshowers@gaston.k12.nc.us.
