Cheer Virtual Tryout Packages

Standard Tryout Package

This streamlined package gives you maximum efficiency with each candidate being scored in five 10-point categories of: Jump, Cheer, Dance, Optional Skill, and Overall Impression.  All cheer and dance material must be selected from your preferred brand’s list of options. No need to create your own cheer or dance!  The “Optional Skill” category will be decided by Coach and can contain, but is not limited to, an additional jump, cheer or dance, or a tumbling skill.

Listed pricing includes:

  • Prepared Score Sheet
  • Tryout Cheer/Dance Material
    • (If you would prefer to use your own material other than what the camp brand provides, please see Build-Your-Own option below.)
  • Tutorial on how to collect tryout videos from candidates and convert videos to shareable links

  • Phone correspondence with designated Head Judge to confirm tryout details and receipt of completed scoring

Build Your Own Tryout Package

This package gives you, the coach, greater flexibility in designing a score sheet that reflects the priorities and goals of your team. Candidates can be judged in up to ten 10-point categories of the coach’s choice. Categories can be weighted by assigning multiple 10-point slots to the same element. For example, for Cheer to be 30% of score, coaches will assign three of the 10-point categories to Cheer.  Please note that any deviation from the Standard Package listed above will be considered a BYO Tryout.
