Tryouts

INFORMATION FOR 2020 ELITE (full travel) TEAM TRYOUTS:

ORIENTATION NIGHT

Required for parents of all athletes (new and returning). Tryouts will run a little differently this year, so please be in attendance so we can explain the process – Monday, June 1st @ 5:00 PM via Zoom (link will be sent out the day before to all families with registered athletes).

You will get an overview of Idaho Cheer and everything involved. You will also have an opportunity to meet the coaches, ask questions, and get a jump start on paperwork. At this time we will also give out the links to a video to learn your athlete's assigned tryout dance and jump section. This will be learned by the athletes on their own via video tutorial the week prior to tryouts. These elements will be reviewed at tryouts when the athletes warm up, but will not be taught in its entirety. Each individual athlete is responsible to know the tryout dance & jump section prior to tryouts.

Information for Tryouts:  

  • If you cannot make it on the prescribed tryout day, please contact idahocheer5678@gmail.com to arrange a private or video tryout (preferably prior to our tryout dates).  Tryout fees still apply.

  • Tryout fees are non-refundable. Any athletes who quit any time after team placement or fail to appear for tryouts forfeit all fees, and will not receive any team apparel.

  • A parent MUST be present at the beginning of the tryout to fill out paperwork. After paperwork is filed, parents may leave. 

  • The “assessment” aspect of tryouts will be closed to spectators. Athletes will be assessed in order of tryout registration.

  • Tryouts will be based on skills assessment. We will evaluate athletes throughout the learning process and make initial placements based on what we see at tryouts and what we know of athletes’ prior cheer performance. (If you have questions regarding the placement of your child, they can be directed to team coaches). Initial tryout placement is not final. Athletes may be moved to other teams throughout the year at the discretion of the coaches.We ask that all families honor a two week grace period before meeting about team placement concerns. 

  • Our new team & class schedule will begin June 8. Any tuition adjustments will be made at that time as needed.

  • The tryout fee is non-refundable.  When you register early, the early bird rate is $200 total (registered by March 15), and 100% of that fee goes toward your competition fees for the season. Competition fees pay for cheer gear, camp, choreography, competition entry, coaches fees, & music.

TRYOUT RESULTS:  Results of the tryouts and practice times will be sent out via the email provided and posted on social media and the website (www.idahocheer.com) by Sunday, June 8. We will post first and last initials along with their tryout number.

June 8-12, 2020: Mandatory Team Meet & Greets, Parent Meeting (will occur via zoom, please have one parent in attendance) and Sizing will be scheduled for each team over the week after tryouts.  Athletes will be fitted for uniforms (as needed), shoes (as needed) and practice attire at this time. Day/time will be announced with tryout results.

Mandatory Choreography Camp for All Star Elite athletes. Attendance is required, new dates tentatively September 12-13. The exact schedule will be sent out about a month prior.

If you register after March 15th, the rate will increase, and only $200 goes towards your competition fees for the season. Late tryouts require additional costs to cover any missed competition fee and/or uniform payments. Tryout fees are non-refundable.
