  • A candidate/cheerleader with current injuries must provide a doctor’s release in order to tryout/practice/perform.
  • A candidate must not have been assigned two or more days of ISS or OSS during the current school year.
  • 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.

Tryout Clinic
There will be a tryout clinic March 23rd, 24th, and 25th in the WMS PE gym.  This is intended to help candidates polish their motions and experience a mock tryout process.  Tryout material will be reviewed at this clinic.  Attendance at the clinic is not mandatory, but highly encouraged.
