Northwest cheerleader tryouts scheduled April 19-20

    Tryouts for the 2013-2014 Northwest Mississippi Community College cheerleading squad are scheduled for April 19-20, according to Liesel Davenport, cheer sponsor. Tryouts are open to male and female cheerleaders. Co-ed stunt group and all-girl stunt group positions are available.

    The tryouts will take place on Friday, April 19 from 5-9 p.m. and Saturday, April 20 from 9 a.m-5 p.m. at the South Gym in the McLendon Center on the Senatobia campus. Participants must be at both sessions, Davenport said.

    Two Northwest cheer clinics are available before tryouts on two Saturdays, March 23 and April 6 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. “Our cheer clinics offer prospects the opportunity to learn stunt, tumbling and cheer elements that are required at the spring tryout,” Davenport said. She added that cheerleader prospects are expected to know how to stunt before they try out for the squad.  The clinics are $20 each.

    Tryout requirements and applications are available on the Northwest website at www.northwestms.edu/cheerleading. Participants are asked to indicate whether or not they plan to attend a clinic on their application, Davenport said.
