Sac Cheer Tryouts


TRAINER. BACK TO YOU. MAYBE WE SHOULD SEND DWAYNE WADE OVER THERE. DIDN’T QUITE MAKE IT THERE LAST NIGHT. ALL RIGHT. A LOCAL CHEERLEADING SQUAD IS PERFORMING FOR A VARIETY OF GOOD CAUSES. NOW THEY WANT YOU TO GET INVOLVED. USUALLY WHEN WE TALK ABOUT CHEERLEADING, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HIGH SCHOOLS OR WE ARE TALKING ABOUT COMPETITIVE CHEERLEADING. THIS IS SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT. WHAT DO YOU DO AND WHAT ARE YOU ABOUT? WE’VE BEEN SACRAMENTO’S CHARITABLE CHEERLEADER SINCE 1999. WE RAISE MONEY FOR LOCAL NONPROFITS. HOW DID THIS COME ABOUT? I STARTED IT AFTER I GOT OUT OF COLLEGE. I HAD CHEERED MY WHOLE LIFE, SO I PUT MY LOVE OF CHARITY AND CHEERLEADING TOGETHER. THIS IS GREAT FOR MAYBE STUDENTS WHO HAVE JUST GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL AND THEY ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO DO. THE AGE GROUP STARTS AT 18. YES. MAYBE IF YOU WEREN’T ABLE TO BE PART OF YOUR HIGH SCHOOL CHEERLEADING TEAM BUT YOU LOVED IT, IF SOMEONE IS COACHABLE, YOU WORK WITH THEM. AS LONG AS THEY HAVE A PASSION FOR OUR MISSION, WHICH IS CHARITY AND THEY ARE HOW DOES THIS WORK? WE SEE THEM PERFORMING OVER HERE. YOU GO OUT TO DIFFERENT ORGANIZATIONS. WHERE DO YOU PERFORM? LAST YEAR WE WERE IN AMERICA’S GOT TALENT COMMERCIALS, A COCA-COLA COMMERCIAL, SUSAN G. KOMEN FOUNDATION, DIFFERENT THINGS FOR THEM, WE EXPO AT DIFFERENT COMPETITIONS AROUND TOWN. PRETTY MUCH ANYONE THAT WANTS US TO PERFORM, WE CAN PERFORM FOR THEM. EVEN PRIVATE PARTIES WE HAVE DONE. THIS IS JUST A SMALL GROUP. THANK YOU FOR WAKING UP EARLY THIS MORNING.

WE HAVE NO CAPS ON THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE WE WILL TAKE ON THE TEAM. WE’VE HAD AS MANY AS 60 PLUS PEOPLE. RIGHT NOW WE HAVE 30 BUT WE ARE DEFINITELY LOOKING FOR MORE TALENT AND ENTHUSIASM FOR OUR TEAM. IF YOU’RE WATCHING THINKING, I DON’T KNOW HOW TO START LIKE THIS. THEY WILL TEACH YOU THAT. I’M PRETTY SURE THEY ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE TO DO THIS AT THE TRYOUTS. WE DO DO SOME STUNTING AT TRYOUTS, BUT TORI JOINED OUR TEAM WITH A PASSION FOR CHARITY BUT HAD NEVER CHEERED BEFORE AND WE TAUGHT HER EVERYTHING SHE KNOWS. THAT’S A HARD JOB, GIRL. IT CAN BE. YOU KNOW WHAT THEY WANTED ME TO DO? BE THE BACK SPOT, WHAT THIS GUY IS DOING. NO THANK YOU. YOU ARE TALL. THAT’S WHY. THAT’S WHY. AND THEY PUT ME AS A FLYER FOR A LITTLE BIT, BECAUSE YOU NEED TO BE A CERTAIN WEIGHT, BUT ONCE I WAS UP THERE, I WAS LIKE, THIS IS REAL TALL. EVERYBODY ELSE IS LIKE 5 FEET. I’M LIKE, THIS IS TOO TALL FOR ME. THIS IS EVEN COOLER, BECAUSE YOU ARE CHEERING AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR COMMUNITY. GET ON OUT THERE. WHAT TIME TONIGHT? 6:00. HOW LONG WILL IT GO?
