2024 Fall Tryouts


Updated on 06/10/2024

CHEERLEADING:  Google Classroom Code prx455a

Cheerleaders are athletes who perform cheers, stunts, tumbling, and dances at games and can be seen practicing diligently throughout the year, including the Summer months. Cheerleading is both a Fall and Winter sport with tryouts for each season. St. Anthony’s cheer program has three teams: Freshman, Junior Varsity, and Varsity.  Each team cheers at home (and some away) football games, home basketball games, and championship games. Attendance at all games is mandatory! In addition, all three teams attend competitions against other Catholic school cheer teams!

 

Open to all grade levels and attendance at tryouts is mandatory!  Freshman team is only freshman students; JV can be freshman, sophomores, and juniors; Varsity can be made up of all grade levels. 

At tryouts…

  • Wear a white t-shirt, (no tank tops), black shorts, socks and sneakers/cheer sneakers. 
  • Hair MUST be pulled back in a high ponytail.  
  • Nails must be cut short.  
  • NO JEWELRY!  
  • NO GUM CHEWING!

 

MONDAY, AUGUST 19 IN STUDENT CENTER  -  2:00PM - 6:00PM ALL GRADES

ALL prospective cheerleaders will learn a cheer and a dance, practice stunting, jumps, and tumbling

 

TUESDAY, AUGUST 20 IN STUDENT CENTER -  2:00PM - 4:00PM ALL GRADES

4:30PM - 6:30PM - Varsity Tryouts (if not trying out for varsity, you may go home at 4pm for the day)

 

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21 IN STUDENT CENTER - 2:00PM - 6:00PM JV/Freshman Tryouts 

 

At the time of tryouts, each group of 4-5 athletes will show what they learned (dance, cheer, jumps, stunts & tumbling). Cheerleaders will be scored by the judges/coaches on their skills, and based on score as well as cheer position needed, they will be chosen for teams. Prior cheer and stunting experience are highly recommended (but not required to make it onto the freshman team).

Athletes will be informed via email Tuesday night 8/20 if they made the varsity team and Wednesday night 8/21 if they made the JV or freshman teams. Emails will also be sent to athletes that do not make a team for the Fall season. All Varsity athletes must attend a UCA camp on Saturday 8/24 and Sunday 8/25. Freshman/JV athletes that make a team are required to attend a cheer clinic/practice on Thursday 8/22 and Friday 8/23. Location and times TBD.

 

In preparation for the tryout and potentially making the team, running, stretching, and conditioning should be the norm throughout the Summer months. Friar Sports Cheerleading Camp held July 29 - Aug 1 is a great opportunity to learn St. Anthony’s cheers and prepare for the tryout in advance!  It also gives incoming Freshman an opportunity to meet other Freshman and build lasting friendships before the school year begins.
