  1. The cheer squads will be open to all 6th and 7th grade students, at the time of tryouts, who wish to tryout.
  2. All candidates must be students of Northwest ISD at the time of tryouts.
  3. A candidate must not have been academically ineligible for any two or more grading periods during the current school year.
  4. A candidate must not have been absent (without making up those hours) for more than 10% of the school days in the school year.
  5. A candidate/cheerleader with current injuries must provide a doctor’s release in order to tryout/practice/perform.
  6. Candidates are expected to attend the tryout workshop(s) in order to learn the tryout material. Attendance is expected but not mandatory. Failure to participate in the workshops could hamper the candidate’s ability to learn the material used for judging at the tryouts, and therefore, could impact their ability to be selected to a squad.
  7. All cheerleaders must have a current physical on file prior to participation.
