TRYOUT FAQ
 
There have been some questions raised since our pre-tryout meeting last Friday. We want to make sure that everyone has accurate information before tryouts begin on Friday. Please remember that if your cheerleader attends try-outs and makes a squad on Friday night, choosing to not participate for the 2019 season, may affect future years of CYC membership.
  1. What is the cost for the 2019 season?
  2. The cost for the 2019 season is: $550 for Mighty Mites / $650 for Pee Wees, Juniors & Seniors. This cost is for everything through Tri-Counties Championship (Jamz) in November. Tri-County championship fees are included.
  3. If my cheerleader makes a squad, when is my first payment due, and how much is it?
  4. Your first deposit will be due in the week following tryouts (date to be determined). It is $100 per cheerleader. For siblings: $150 for 2 cheerleaders, $200 for 3 cheerleaders, etc. (Cheerleaders must live in the same home to qualify as siblings).
  5. When are practices and games?
  6. Practices generally begin in July. Football season begins mid-August and runs through November. Cheerleaders may practice up to 6 hours per week. Games are always on Saturday and include travel on some weekends.
  7. How many cheerleaders are on each squad?
  8. Each squad can keep up to 24 cheerleaders. However, based on scores, tryout clinic behavior and attitude, squads may have fewer than 24 cheerleaders.
  9. How can parents help during the season?
  10. Each family will be asked to help with: At least 1 snow cone sales session during a home game (2 hours); One CYC fundraising event (Cinco de Mayo @ Skilled Nursing Facility, parade float, 8th grade night, etc.); Snacks for home or away cheerleaders during the season.
  11. Can my cheerleader participate in other sports during the Fall season?
  12. Yes, cheerleaders may participate in other sports for their school during the season. There is an additional cheer contract to sign. Participating in another sport with a conflicting schedule may result in reduced role on the CYC squad.
  13. What does my cheerleader need for tryouts?
  14. Cheerleaders will be judged on their appearance (appropriate attire, facials, posture); Arms and angles during cheer and dance (sharpness, hands/arms/legs in correct positions during the routine); Voice projection (how loud and sharp their voice is during the cheer), Spirit (Enthusiasm and motivation), and overall performance of routine.
  15. Cheerleaders are advised to wear shorts with a tank top or tee and a high ponytail on tryout day.
If you have other questions, please ask a board member or advisor!
