USD Spirit Team Cheer Audition!
• Number of cuts is based on the number of people auditioning.
• The judging and scoring process will be explained on the day of auditions.
• Individual interviews will be conducted before the final cuts for both dance and cheer.
• Once the interviews have concluded, we will hold the final round of auditions. We will deliberate for approximately an hour, then announce the 2015-2016 USD Cheer Team.
• Once the teams have been announced, we will have a team meeting and introduction. Please bring a checkbook, as we will be collecting uniform and team participation money at that time.
- Requirements for each team will be posted soon, so please refer to the appropriate documents when they become available. Each dancer and cheerleader is required to attend a team dance or cheer camp, that we will be attending in late July as a team. Details and more information will be provided in the coming weeks.
***Important: Please thoroughly read and review our team contract. Once you sign it, it is binding and you are held accountable for it. Please be sure to have your parent or guardian read and sign it as well. This includes everyone, even if you are 18 and older.***
