Tryouts are Tuesday, August 9th - Friday, August 12th. The girls will find out on Friday whether or not they made either j.v. or varsity. There will be 15 girls picked for each squad. Everyone has to have a tryout and a place on the squad last year does not guarantee a place on this years squad. They will be required to learn cheers, a dance, and will be showing other cheer skills (stunts, jumps, tumbling, etc.)
Hope this helps! Please feel free to email me for any further questions.

You have to be the coach's kid or one of their friends to make the team. The girls that were selected for this yrs team, half of them shouldn't even be on the team. I mean really if you forget half of your routine or fall on yor face while tumbling during tryouts, you shouldn't make the team. It's a joke....

You have to do what is asked of you at tryouts. Considering it was a closed tryout, I love how everyone, who was not present, is an expert on who was chosen for the teams. I would love for some of you to have the responsibility of having to choose. Every single girl who was chosen was chosen based on a need for the team. I know I personally look for those who if they do fall, get back and try it again. Everyone makes mistakes sometimes; it's a great lesson to learn early that you just pick yourself up and try again... yet suddenly this is a bad thing? A reason a child should not make a cheerleading squad?
Kids are going to be hurt when they do not make the squad, or any sport for that matter. However; it is the job of the coaches to pick the best team (skills, need, attitude, and chemistry). I really do hate that children are hurt after "cut" day, but it is part of life. There were 4 judges present at this tryout, all of whom are very familiar with cheerleading. Please do not judge children. It is not their fault that they made the squad. As adults it is inappropriate to make children feel bad or guilty for accomplishing something.

Wow...somebody needs an attutude adjustment. You didn't mention the fact that the girl that fell tumbling got back up and nailed the back handspring perfectly the second time around. It's a joke that you are being such a jerk to girls that work so hard, while you probably sit around and do nothing.

Seems like I might actually know what I'm doing, afterall. My varsity girls have been county runners up to a very good Park team for two years. We won our first competition this year. My jv girls have won all three competitions they've entered the past two years.We are preparing to compete again next month and are doing fantastic.
So, I guess I haven't "Run them into the ground", afterall.

Very proud of my teams!
