GMC BASKETBALL CHEER 2020-2021

We are excited about your interest in trying out to be a GMC cheerleader. Please understand, being a cheerleader is a big commitment. You will have a lot of fun, but there is also a lot of work involved.

 

Before You Sign Up:

Is cheer for me………

  • There will be two to three practices per week for all squad members, in addition to the games.
  • You will be expected to be at all practices and all games, unless you have a very valid excuse. When even one cheerleader is out, it affects the whole practice and whatever routine is being planned for the game or pep rally.
  • Signing up to try out means you are committed to the sport and your teammates for the entire season if you make the team. Quitting the team during the season may result in not being able to try out for the next year’s season. (Your coach will go over what types of absences are excused and unexcused should you make the team).

  • You will be required to do the cheer, dance, and 3 jumps.
  • You will be judged on your skills, coordination, voice, smile, rhythm, and enthusiasm. A copy of the score sheet is attached. Judges will also be watching for attitude and ability to work with others.

Help Session (not mandatory):
