23-24Tryout Interest Meeting.

Our tryouts for the upcoming 2023-2024 season will be held March 20th - 24th from 5-7pm in the CHHS Main Gym! Before you can try out, here are a few things you’ll need to complete:

*These will not be sent until AFTER tryouts (in the event you are not selected for a team this season, we will deactivate your account and will not send emails on your behalf)

All items on the above list are due by Friday March 17th!! Do not wait until the last minute to complete! We do not want to have to turn anyone away from Tryouts for missing items.

Tryout FAQs:

Mon-Thursday we will have clinic days where our graduationg seniors will teach tryout material (cheers, dances, jumps). On Friday, you will perform in groups of 4 in front of the judges for a final tryout score.

Tryout Results will be posted on the website by 12:00pm on Saturday March 25th. 

Yes! Summer practices are excused for travel. Absences will start counting August 1st. 

We know that everyone’s top team is Varsity. However, if you only select varsity as a 9-11th grader, and do not score high enough for that team, you run the risk of not cheering at all. We highly encourage you to put all teams you are eligible for. (Reminder: 12th grade students are only eligible for Varsity.)

For spirit cheer? No – but it's always a great bonus! For competition cheer – tumbling is definitely a HUGE part of our scoresheet and you will be required to have a minimum of a standing and running backhandspring by August 1st, and be in a tumbling class at least 1x per week beginning NOW

You can try out to cheer on as many as you want! Be sure to look at the schedules and make sure you are ready to commit – it gets busy! 

Tryouts are a grueling process, and people WILL get cut. If you tryout, it is assumed that you are committing to the entirety of the season at that point. If you decide in July you don’t want to cheer, you have taken the spot of someone who really wanted it. So please be 100% sure you are committed BEFORE tryouts start. (If you are considering playing softball or volleyball, please talk with Coach B at the start of tryouts.)

Start a workout program NOW! Cheerleading is more physically demanding than people realize. Start perfecting motions, do some research on what proper motions look like, and practice in a mirror or on video to see if you are doing it correctly. Tumbling classes are always a bonus, and get with friends to practice together! We will teach you all the material that you need during tryout week 

If you think of any other questions, please feel free to send Coach B an email at katie.birkhead@gcpsk12.org!
