Virtual Tryout Resources

You could use Youtube, Skype, BAND or another method to allow students to audition live. For a simple way to submit videos and a step by step on how to host your virtual tryout, click here.

Virtual Judges
In times of rapid change, our commitment to you and your athletes remains the same. With our mission in mind, we – Varsity Spirit, want to do everything we can to help you kick your season off to a spirited and successful start. Therefore, we are offering FREE virtual judges this year to help you select your team, for those who are currently registered for a Varsity Spirit Summer Camp. Our Varsity Spirit corporate employees and top judges will be able to judge your tryouts at no cost to you. If you need outside judges, please fill out this form and we can help provide virtual judges for you!

Tryout BAND Group
BAND, the official team communication app of Varsity Spirit, is the best way to organize your virtual tryout. Simply create a BAND and invite everyone who is interested in trying out. Within the BAND, you are able to post all of your tryout paperwork, host a virtual meeting, and share all the materials needed for your athletes to practice in the safety of their own homes. For step by step details on creating your BAND group and for information regarding the safety measures BAND takes for school groups, click here.
