Tryouts for the 2014-15 SSU Cheerleading Squad will be held Friday, August 22, 2014 from 6 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, August 23, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Frank and Janis Waller Gymnasium located in the Rhodes Athletic Center. Candidates must bring a recent photograph and dress appropriately in shorts, form fitting shirt and cheerleading shoes. You must attend both sessions to be eligible for the squad.
A cheer and a chant will be taught to all candidates during the tryout process. Successful candidates will have sharp motions, strong jumps and excellent voice projection. There are no specific requirements for tumbling or stunting skills. However, the addition of these skills is a definite asset and will be a factor in the selection of the squad.
In addition, I will look for candidates with the ability to work with and as a team, positive attitudes, and energetic personalities.
