TIME FOR CHEERLEADING TRYOUTS - GIRLS AND GUYS!!


Why Cheerleading?
One of the goals of our team is to break barriers. I cannot brag enough on the members of last year's cheerleading squad---they have already done this! The Hurricanes Cheerleading Squad is not the stereotypical cheer team. It is a team made up of members who support, encourage, bring out the best in each person and treat each other like family. We want to restore the true spirit of cheerleading. It is a co-ed sport that requires various levels of athleticism and enthusiasm found in both males and females. Whether you've been on a cheer team or not, you have done some form of cheering at a game or watching from home.

Not sure if you want to try out?
Come to our open house (bring attached medical waiver) on Tuesday, March 28th from 3:00-4:30PM at First Assembly Gym (1105 Haywood Road, Greenville)

(If you are a male and undecided, please see the link below on "Male Cheerleading".)

Fun Fact: Cheerleading was an all-male sport when it first began in 1877. The first woman was allowed on the team in 1923 but women were not recognized in the sport until the 1940's)

What will we be doing during tryouts?  We will be learning cheers, jumps, stunting, tumbling, and a dance (for those trying out for competition.) We will be evaluating students' spirit, teachable qualities, positive attitude, ability to copy motions and teamwork capabilities.

What to wear? T-shirt and shorts or stretchy pants. Cheer bloomers or compression shorts MUST be worn underneath shorts for girls. We will be learning stunting and tumbling, so this is to ensure you are well covered.
