Tryouts for the 2014-2015 Northwest Mississippi Community College cheerleading squad are scheduled for May 9-10, according to Liesl Mote, 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, May 9 from 5-9 p.m. and Saturday, May 10 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, Mote said.
A Northwest cheer clinic is available before tryouts on Saturday, April 12 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,” Mote said. She added that cheerleader prospects are expected to know how to stunt before they try out for the squad. The clinics are $25 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, Mote said.
