There will be an informational meeting on February 25th from 5:00 to 6:00 in the Medlin cafeteria to discuss Cheer tryouts, eligibility, and season expectations.  Parents and candidates are welcome to attend.  Attendance at this meeting is not mandatory, but highly recommended, as all candidates and parents are responsible for the material shared during this meeting.

Packets will be distributed at the informational meeting on February 25th or may be picked up in room A212 after the meeting.  Completed tryout packets must be turned in to Coach Wood in A212 NO LATER THAN March 6th at 4:10 pm so that eligibility may be determined.  Late packets will NOT be accepted.  Candidates will be notified of their eligibility to tryout by March 16th.

There will be a tryout clinic March 18th, 19th, and 20th in the MMS PE gym.  This is intended to help candidates polish their motions and experience a mock tryout process.  Tryout material will NOT be taught at this clinic.  Attendance at the clinic is not mandatory, but highly encouraged.
