How to Prepare for a Tryout | Cheerleading


How to prepare for cheerleading tryouts. Cheerleading tryouts can be stressful, but
coaches and judges just want to see you at your best. Taking the time to prepare mentally and physically
will help you have the best tryout that you can. First, you’ll want to get in shape, start
a workout plan, and set goals for the skills you want to do at tryouts. Research the team and ask past members about
any questions that you might have. They could be really helpful in finding out
what to expect for this upcoming year. In the days leading up to the actual tryout,
there will probably be a couple of days of clinics where you’re going to learn the cheer,
side lines and chants, and the dance. You’re definitely going to want to go to this. After you’ve learned all that material, you
want to go home every night and practice, practice, practice. Do your motions in front of the mirror, and
if you can bring a blank CD so you can get a copy of the music so you can practice the
dance at home, too. On the day of tryouts, you want to dress to
impress. Make sure that your clothes are appropriate
and if you can, try to wear your school colors. If you make a mistake during the tryout, don’t
worry about it. Just keep smiling and keep pushing through. Think about your cheerleading tryout as a
job interview. You’ll be representing your school and your
community. So make sure you’re always acting professional. Show your leadership ability employs by keeping
your head up and making eye contact with the judges. And always come prepared to tryouts with all
of your documents ready to go.
