Tryout Information

Updated May 26, 2020:

Hello Shawnee Mission East Cheer 2020-2021 Applicants,

**Tryouts have been scheduled!  They will take place at SME.  Tryout clinics (where all of the tryout material is taught) are July 6-8, and Tryouts are July 9.  Each day will be 9-11am, outside on the upper turf field at SME.  Please email with questions!

As you know, there are no solidified dates for Cheer Tryouts - keep checking the website for info, hopefully coming soon! We coaches have decided to be proactive in the tryout process, and familiarize ourselves with all of you. We are asking that applicants send in a video to introduce yourselves. In the video we would like for you to present: your name, grade, a toe touch and a right hurdler (at present time). If an example is needed, please reference this video ( ). Optional content to be included: current or recent (within the last 6 months) video of tumbling or stunting. Videos will be accepted through May 31st. 

Please email videos to:

Please note, that these videos do not participate in a scoring element of the tryout. The video’s sole purpose is to get to know you; as an applicant. 

If you are at a disadvantage due to technology, please let us know and we can accommodate accordingly. 

All tryout paperwork will be accepted through photograph or as a scanned document, through this email:
