Optional Pre Tryout Clinics:

    • Pre Tryout Clinic: 2-3:30pm
  • Pre Tryout Clinic #2: Saturday April 6th, 2024 
    • Pre Tryout Clinic: 9:30am - 11:00am

These optional Pre Tryout Clinics are for girls to get comfortable with basic skills including cheers, chants, dances, motions, stunts, tumbling, jumps etc. These clinics are not required and are largely for girls to ask any basic material questions, talk with some of the senior cheerleaders from the last season and overall gain some tips and get comfortable. There will be no tryout material taught at these clinics. Absolutely no school paraphernalia to be worn at pre tryout clinics or tryouts.
Tryout Week:
  • Material Day #1: Monday April 22nd, 2024 6:30pm - 8:30pm
  • Material Day #2: Wednesday April 24th, 2024 6:30pm - 8:30pm 
  • Optional Review Day: Friday April 26th, 2024 at 6:30pm 
  • Tryout Day: Sunday April 28th, 2024 starting at 2pm until all tryouts are completed 

Tryout Week will be composed of two material days that are MANDATORY. Girls are to wear plain white shirts and black bottoms to tryouts. We have scheduled these after spring practices but understand that girls may be late or are not able to attend the full time. If girls have circumstances or prior obligations that do not allow them to attend, please email no later than 3:00pm on Monday April 22nd, 2024. Tryout material will be distributed by video to all girls, including those with special exemptions from mandatory material days who inform coaches ahead of time. The Optional Review Day is for girls to ask questions and review as a group and participate in a “mock tryout” wherein we will give them a quick glimpse as a group to understand the flow of the tryout day. The Tryout Day is Mandatory except for those who communicate extenuating circumstances in advance. Tryouts will promptly begin at 2:30pm (girls should arrive no later than 2pm at MBA on the Indoor Turf). Girls are welcome to arrive early to warm up and expect tryouts to last 4 hours and girls are required to leave campus immediately after their individual tryout. Girls with exceptions to submit a video for their tryout are required to email this video to coaches by 12pm on Sunday April 28th, 2024. We will communicate individually with girls requiring what we need to see in their video submissions. 

Tryout Information

Girls who desire to try out should recognize that being an MBA cheerleader is a privilege. MBA Cheerleaders conduct themselves with class at all times and are mindful of how their actions reflect on their respective schools, MBA, their teammates, and their coaches. MBA Cheerleaders are athletes, and athletic performance is a large part of MBA cheerleading. MBA Cheerleaders remain in good academic standing throughout the season.
