2020 WMS Cheerleading Tryouts

 

We are excited to announce that NISD will conduct Virtual Tryouts for the 2020 Middle School Cheer season!  

Tryouts will be conducted through video submission from May 4th to May 8th.  The Virtual Tryout Submission link for Wilson will be posted on THIS PAGE and will accept submissions from May 4th to May 8th.  Late submissions will not be considered.  A panel of two judges (not affiliated with Wilson) will score each video submission using the NISD Score Card that was presented at the Informational Meeting.  Tryout results will be posted to this page no later than May 11th.  All other tryout procedures set forth in the NISD Cheer Guidelines still apply.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!  Until May, keep practicing and stay healthy!
