There will be a mat laid out on the JHS football field for you to use to film your tumbling tryout video. It is not required that you use this space to film your tumbling video, however, we want to provide a safe place for you to showcase your tumbling if needed. You can film at home or wherever you think is fitting, but please make sure you are in a safe area. DO NOT USE A SPRING FLOOR – YOU WILL NOT GET CREDIT FOR YOUR VIDEO IF IT IS ON A SPRING FLOOR. If you plan to use the mat provided please sign up on the Google Document via the link provided below. This will help ensure we are following the social distancing guidelines that have been set forth. This also means that if you choose to come and use the mat that is provided make sure you film your video and then leave. DO NOT COME AND JUST HANG OUT. There will be a coach onsite for safety reasons and to help monitor everything.
***The coach will NOT be able to spot you so make sure you are doing tumbling that you are confident in.***

You do not need to be available all day that day. Just during your designated tryout time. You will tryout and then you will be done.

During the tryout you will be asked to do the following:
Kicks
Jumps
Cheer
Dance
The kicks and jumps will be done one at a time. We will call your number and then have you show the skill.
The cheer and dance will be done at the same time. You may be asked to do these twice.
We will then ask each candidate to say why they are trying out for JHS cheer. This is your chance to show your personality! Don’t be shy and be confident!

If you have any issues connecting or joining your live tryout please let Coach Nicole know ASAP. You will not be penalized for technical issues. We will work with you and help ensure you are able to tryout.
