    Tryouts -
    We have a varsity and a jv team. They both only do competitions and never cheer at games.
    Tryouts last for 3 days. Day 1: learn dance and a couple cheers (and go over motions and jumps incase you have never cheered before.)
    Day 2: everyone goes over the material then varsity tryouts start and jv watches.
    day 3: quick review and then jv tryouts.
    The coaches judge the tryouts and choose who makes the team. If someone does not make the varsity team, they come back the next day for jv trouts. If someone doesnt make the jv team they can always be called in during the season as an alternate.

    Practices -
    We practice from late May- after nationals in Febuary. We practice monday, wed., thursday, some fridays, and sunday mornings. We have off during August for vacation and during christmas time for about a week.
    We go to UCA camp the beginning of august or end of july.
    We only do competitions so we dont have to worry about games or anything.
    We have a designated tumbling practice once a week, but we tumble at each practice.
    We condition as a team every practice.

    We paymore than $200 for practice clothes, shoes, ect. the begining of each year but its not mandatory to buy all of the stuff again the next year.
    For competitions are har has to be high up on our heads and curled.
    We usually have curling parties the night before competitions and we eat and curl eachothers hair.
    We do a clinic twice a year for elementry school kids. We teach them some basic stunts, motions, and jumps.
