If You Make The Team: An email will be sent to the email addresses given on Sunday, April 19, 2020 @ 3:00pm regarding further actions required. (future important dates, obligations, payments, etc.) If you do not receive an email by 3:10, you did not make the team. Please feel free to email Coach Terron and we can discuss the areas to improve on from the scoresheet for next year’s tryout. Please DO NOT get discouraged if you do not make the squad this year and please try again next year. Many who don’t make it their first tryout year, make it the second tryout year by identifying weaknesses and working to improve cheer skills. All current cheerleaders must try out again every year and no cheerleader is safe from year to year as ALL spots are open.

 

*all stunting will be evaluated once our COVID-19 stay at home orders have been lifted and we are approved for practices.*

 

*Competition squad will be determined after UCA Cheer Camp July 28-31. Camp is a requirement for all athletes who make the Cathedral Cheer Squads.*
