Due to Covid-19 and social distancing measures that are currently in place, tryouts for the TRC Cheer Team will be conducted online. This tryout will consist of video submission, with the video being uploaded to youtube or emailed directly to Coach Sparkman. More specific information for your tryout video will be sent directly to you once your application has been emailed to Coach Sparkman.
The deadline for all applications is April 15th at 12 pm, Central Time.
Due to social distancing, we encourage you to submit video footage that you already have and/or that you can do from home. We do not expect nor do we encourage you to leave your home to capture these skills on video. Additionally, if you do not have some of the skills already on video or are unable to do so at home, you will have the opportunity to explain that when you send your video link. This will not negatively affect your evaluation.
The following skills we be evaluated in your video submission to be considered for the 2020-2021 TRC Cheer team:
- Personal Introduction (Name, Age, Year in School, Hometown/High School, any additional information you feel like sharing)
- Standing Tumbling
- Running Tumbling
- Gameday stunts (All-Girl: Target and Lib, Co-Ed: Shoulder Stand and Toss to Hands)
- Chant (instructional video will be sent when your application is received)
- Band Dance (instructional video will be sent when your application is received)
The following items need to be turned in to tryout:
- Completed Tryout Application (pages 4-7) Cheer Tryout Packet
- Two letters of recommendation from previous coaches or teachers who can vouch for your work ethic and character
- Completed Waiver to Release and Agreement to Indemnify Form Cheer Tryout Waiver Form
- Copy of Current Physical
- Copy of current medical insurance card
It is still encouraged that candidates mail/email their tryout forms. Failure to have the completed packet and forms the day of tryouts will result in the candidate not being eligible to tryout.
