Tryouts for the 2021-22 Cheerleading Teams will be held on Wednesday May 26th and Thursday, May 27th from 2:15 – 5:00PM in the River Ridge Gym.


This is the only way we know how many athletes are trying out in order to create the tryout schedule. This also ensures that your paperwork has been checked and is correct BEFORE tryouts. If your athlete comes to tryouts without us checking the paperwork and any of it is incorrect or missing, they will be sent home.

*Or you can pick up a packet in the high school front office. Middle School front office for incoming 9th graders.

Athletes are required to bring their own water for tryouts. Water fountains may not be available.

Coaches and judges will be wearing face masks during tryouts and hand sanitizer will be readily available for your athletes.

Each athlete will receive a tryout number once paperwork is finalized. This number will be used to announce the teams.

Athletes trying out will have the opportunity to stretch, warm up any tumbling and jumps, and practice the cheer, chant and dance a few times as a group before their tryout.

Please wear a white shirt, black or dark shorts, sneakers and hair in a low pony with a bow, if you have one, for your tryout.

We will be recording each tryout in case there is needed discussion about the tryout. We also may ask groups to perform the cheer, chant or dance more than once. We understand nerves and anxiety over tryouts, so we want to give every opportunity for the athlete to perform their best on this one-day event.

Please follow our Twitter account for up-to-date information as we get closer to tryouts.
