Friday evening, candidates will learn most of the material they'll need for evaluations. On Saturday that material will be reviewed and added to. Cheer candidates will also work on tumbling, jump and stunt skills. Dance candidates will work on spin, leap and flexibility skills.

Buzz candidates will wear the costume during their tryout. Candidates should come prepared with a :30-1:00 routine to music of the candidate's choosing which the candidate will also provide (we'll have an aux cord and a speaker). Candidates will be asked to act out various game play or crowd scenarios. Candidates may bring props. We will have RMC signs and pom poms which also may be used.

Any questions should be forwarded to Head Coach Susan Cassidy at SusanCassidy@rmc.edu
