Dear Potential Cheerleader,
Thank you for your interest in Normandy Cheerleading! We have a great program that is continually growing here at Normandy High School and would love for you to be a part of it! Our cheerleaders cheer at football and basketball games, attend fundraisers, walk in district approved parades, and host activities for community members to attend.
We have two different squads that you may try out for at Normandy High School. Our Football Cheer Squad which includes either Junior Varsity or Varsity and our Basketball Cheer Squad which includes Freshman, Junior Varsity, and Varsity. The freshman basketball cheer is a new option this year and will consist of freshman only. The addition of the freshman cheer squad only pertains to basketball season and was put into place due to the increase in cheerleaders that have shown interest in cheering for basketball. We will limit this roster to 8-9 cheerleaders, per basketball cheer squad.
In the fall, we will participate in the Great Lakes Conference Cheer Showcase which will be held on October 26, 2020 at Valley Forge High School. It will be MANDATORY for all Football Cheerleaders to participate in. More information on this event to follow throughout the season.
Tryouts: Typically, tryouts are held at Normandy, but with the ‘stay at home’ order still in place due to COVID-19, tryouts will be virtual this year. Every person interested in participating in tryouts will need to submit their information through a Google Form that will be provided and download the app called BAND to their phone or tablet. This is where clinics will take place. At the end of the clinics, each participant will submit a single video with all the material to the selected judges. At that time, the judges will begin watching and judging the videos based on the score sheets provided by the coaches. Once the scores are returned to us, we will email each and every participant whether they made the cheer squad or not. **These virtual tryouts are for football only.** We will host basketball tryouts in August/September when we return to school.
Please review the following information in this packet (2 Documents Listed Below). Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions before tryouts.
