How to Make a College Cheerleading Team

How to Make a College Cheerleading Team | CWU cheerleading | Scoop.it
The transition from high school and all-star cheerleading to college cheerleading is difficult. In this article, find out exactly what to do before and during try-outs to make a college cheerleading squad.
Rahma's insight:

This article gives insight and advice to becoming a college cheerleader. I think it is very helpful, yet it gives a lot of basic information that you should really already know if you want to become a college cheerleader. The best advice given in this article is probably finding out the requirements for the team you are trying out for. Each college has different qualifications, for example, if you want to go to a bigger school like UW you need to have prior knowledge of partner stunting and have at least a back tuck. Yet if you are going to a somewhat smaller school like Central, it is recommended you have your back handspring but girls have made it without having a back handspring before. For most colleges it is very hard to make the team if you do not have any tumbling. You school be practicing every day if you want to make a college team because the level is much higher than high school cheerleading.

Central Washington University Athletics - Cheerleading

Rahma's insight:

This site gives you all the information needed to participate in the cheer clinic to prepare for the tryouts. Below the clinic information is also the tryout information. The forms needed are the Cheerleading application, insurance waiver, the Acknowledgment of Risk and Hold Harmless Agreement, a physical, a photo of myself and a grade report to show I have above a 2.0 GPA. These papers are to be filled out and either mailed, brought to the clinic or brought to the try outs. If these papers are turned in before the day of tryouts the tryout fee will be reduced to $20 instead of $30.

Rahma's insight:

This is the cheerleading application to try out for the CWU cheerleading team. I have taken this home and filled out the necessary information, yet I am not sure what to check for if I would want an alternate position on the team. Although cheer is very important to me and I would do anything to be on the team I am not sure that I would want to be a “bench warmer”. Being an alternate is the worst thing in the world but I am not sure I would love being on the team as much. By looking at this application I have also learned that to be on the cheerleading team you have to have a 2.0 GPA to try out and also maintain that GPA to stay on the team. This is not a problem for me now, although my grades are not the best but I am confident that I can get well above a 2.0 during college. I also found out that I have to bring a grade report to prove that I have received above a 2.0 GPA and proof that I have been accepted to CWU.
