Tryout Information

Vandal Spirit Squad Tryout Information

Tryouts and auditions for the Vandal Spirit Squad will take place April 13-14, 2019. The coaching staff does understand if a student is unable to attend live tryouts due to far travel. If this is the case, the student should contact the head coach as soon as possible to make other arrangements. The head coach looks for those who are high performers with strong skill sets of sideline cheer, tumbling, dance technique, and stunting.

The coaching staff does its best to provide clinics before tryouts and auditions. These are made available to help prospective students prepare for spring tryouts. Material taught at the clinics will be of the Vandal Spirit Squad style. During the clinic, the head coach will instruct tumbling, stunting, sideline motions, dance technique, and other material to be used during tryouts. These are not required, but highly recommended to attend. 

Spring tryout clinic is Saturday, April 6, 2019 in the large gym of the Public Education Building.  Please submit your clinic registration form, a copy of your medical insurance cards, and risk waiver to by Thursday, April 4, 2019.  You will not be able to participate without these.
