Cheerleading Tryout Information for Season 2020-2021
Empire All Stars Virtual Tryout Video
Step 1: Introduce Yourself
(Name, Age, Date of Birth, prior cheer experience, prior stunting position)
Ex: “Hello, My Name is ____, My birthday is _____ and I am ___ years old. I have done town cheerleading for ___ years and I am a base.”
Step 2: Film Your Dance
Dance can be found on YouTube by searching “Empire All Stars Tryout Video 2020” or click the link provided: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dZhWnmp9tg&t=161s There is a tutorial that breaks down each 8-count step by step. If you struggle with the speed of the tutorial, adjust the settings by slowing down the speed of the video. (“Settings,” “Playback speed,” “0.5”)
If it isn’t perfect—don’t sweat it! Just do your best!
Step 3: Film Your Jumps!
We require you to perform a toe touch, a pike, and a double jump of your choice. If you have no prior experience, a simple google search of the jumps mentioned will give you an idea of what we’re looking for.
Step 4: Add Additional Skills
If you are a flyer, please show us your flyer positions (heel stretch/bow & arrow, arabesque/scale/scorpion.)
If you are in a (safe) position to do so, feel free to show us any tumbling skills that you have. If you would like to attach clips of stunts or tumbling that you have performed in the past, we would love to see it! We will be viewing your tumbling/stunts at a later date, so this section of evaluations is optional.
Step 5: Fill Out Your Tryout Forms
Please fill out both forms provided and attach them to your email
Step 6: Email submission to [email protected]
If your video is too long or you are having issues sending the file, please email us to coordinate a different way for us to receive it (via phone, google drive, etc.)
*We will let you know that we have received your video, however, we will not be announcing team placements until mid-July.
If you would like to join us for summer practices, we host “drop-in” practices, Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30 PM. Each class you attend is $15 and will focus on individual flexibility, jump, tumbling, and strength improvement. Please let us know if you are interested.
Thank you for submission and we look forward to seeing you in the gym very soon!
