2018 Season: Spirit Squads - Tryouts

Vandal Spirit Squad Tryout Information

Tryouts and auditions for the Vandal Spirit Squad will take place May 1-3, 2020. Applications are due Wednesday, April 29, 2020.

The coach 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 coach as soon as possible to make other arrangements. When selecting the team for the next academic year, we are looking for those who are high performers with strong skill sets of sideline cheer, tumbling, dance technique, and stunting.

Spring prep clinics are offered to help prospective students prepare for tryouts and auditions. 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 that might be used during tryouts. These are not required, but highly recommended to attend. 
Spring prep clinics are Saturday, March 28, 2020 & April 4, 2020 in the MAC of the Student Recreation Center. Please submit your clinic registration form and risk waiver  to by the Thursday before the clinic date. You will not be able to participate without these.

Each clinic is $10 for current UI students and $25 for all others- payment to be made via marketplace. Current students must bring their Vandal ID with them to check in.
