Tryout Prep Clinic
Vandal Spirit Squad Tryout Information
Tryouts and auditions for the cheer and dance teams at the University of Idaho usually takes place in April. 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 they can to make other arrangements. The coach has been known to extend video tryouts through the end of June depending on space and availability on teams. 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 as often as they can before tryouts and auditions. These are made available to help prospective students prepare for U of I spring tryouts. Material taught at the clinics will be of the University of Idaho Cheer and Dance style. During the clinic, the head coach will instruct tumbling, stunting, sideline motions, dance technique, and other material that will be used during tryouts. These are not required, but highly recommended to attend.
If you have specific questions regarding the program, please contact the coach
