Tryout Routine FAQ:

 

Q: What if I have a skill that cannot be shown in this routine? (“Out Of Level” tumbling skill)
A. Great! You may video the skill and upload it on your Tryout Registration Form. We also would like to see your out of level STUNTING skills. (Example- If you are doing a level 3 routine, but you have competed level 4 stunting skills, please send us a video!) 

 

Q. Will I be placed on a team that is the level of my tryout routine?
A. We do not promise levels before, during, or after our Tryout Process. Our Tryout Process is longer than most because it is important for athletes to demonstrate their abilities to do cheer & tumbling skills in a group setting. Athletes have ended up on teams higher, lower, or the same as their tryout routine. The All Star Cheer scoresheet is not based entirely on tumbling and because of this, our tryout is not either.

 

Q: What if I mess up my routine in front of the judges?
A: Athletes are permitted to try their routine (or parts) again if they have not performed to the best of their abilities! 🙂

 

Q: There is a lot of down time in the routine. Can I add my own choreography?
A: Yes. HAVE FUN!  We encourage all athletes to show their personalities in the routines. Cheer is a performance sport and we can’t wait to watch you all!
