Tryout Information 2017-2018 Season

Want to Cheer with Champions?

Tryouts for Florida Teamcheer start in May.

Team placement at Florida TeamCheer is a process that involves assessment of the individual cheerleader, for all of the skills that make a successful team: stunting, tumbling, dance and motions, standing and running tumbling, jumps. Each cheerleader will be assessed the first week of May (1ST OR 2ND) to place them in work groups for the month. Groups will be based on age and skill and practice will be set for May after practice May 2nd. Practice for May is 2 hours twice a week. During these practice sessions, new and returning cheerleaders will work on tumbling, stunting, jumps, dance and motion skills. This allows coaches to assess coachability, maturity, and progression of skills and potential for skill mastery over the summer and for new cheerleaders to make sure that this is the right sport for them.

Teams are made up of Bases, Back Spots, and Flyers of similar age and skill. Our goal is to have full squad tumbling at the level of the team and appropriate stunting skills. This means that the cheerleader is able to demonstrate that skill every time they are asked. To be competitive, teams need all cheerleaders to have mastery and confidence of all level appropriate skills.

COST- $100 Includes $25 annual registration fee, practice for the month of May and a tryout tshirt. Cheerleaders should come to Tryouts in compression shorts, sports bra, t-shirt cheer shoes or sneakers, hair up, and a water bottle and ready to practice. The gym is not air conditioned so come hydrated.
