Cheer and Dance candidates will learn the material they'll need for evaluations during the morning hours before a short lunch break.  Afterwards, material will be reviewed and candidates will have a chance to perfect their skills before being evaluated.  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 1:30 routine or skit to music of the candidate's choosing which the candidate will also provide (we'll have an aux cord and a speaker). Candidates may bring props. We will have R-MC signs and pom poms which also may be used.

Any questions should be forwarded to Head Coach Susan Cassidy at [email protected]
