Hello Shawnee Mission East Cheer 2020-2021 Applicants,
Please read through the following information about tryouts very carefully!
Here are the links for the tryout material!
Please watch and learn the material on your own time and prepare yourself for the following:
July 16 - OPTIONAL in-person clinic (time assigned by grade - keep reading) on the upper turf field at SME. This is for anyone trying out that would like to come practice in person or get any clarification. From 9-10am will be the juniors and seniors, and from 10-11am will be freshmen and sophomores. Please maintain social distance and if you get within 6 feet of another person, you will be required to wear a mask.
July 17 - TRYOUT DAY!! We will be having in-person tryouts. You will fill out the form at the bottom of this information in order to secure a tryout time. We will start at 8:00am and times will be assigned every 7 minutes - please check your email for your time. Please come for your tryout, and then leave. You will try out in a group of three, showing us the cheer, dance, your jumps, and your tumbling if you can. Again, please maintain social distance and if you get within 6 feet of another person, you will be required to wear a mask.
July 20 - We are offering a tryout over Zoom on July 20 for anyone who does not feel comfortable coming to an in-person tryout. For this tryout, you will be assigned a time to login to zoom, you will present all of the tryout material in one shot, and log off.
July 21 - All three coaches will be making personal phone calls to every single person who tried out to deliver news. Please answer your phones on this day! If you do make the team, we will tell you which squad and whether or not you are going to be part of the competition squad.
