Tryout attire:

Females: Wear sports bra & spandex shorts. We are looking for a neat, collegiate, clean cut appearance. Wear hair & make up as you would on game day. Hair should be half up & half down with a ribbon. Make up should be worn and look natural, with color on your lips. NO JEWELRY except pearl earrings. Our school colors are red, grey, black, and white; so please dress accordingly. Refrain from wearing any other University, high school or all-star attire. Any tattoos you may have should not be visible.

 Males: Wear a t-shirt and shorts. A neat, collegiate, clean cut appearance is expected. No piercings/jewelry allowed. Any tattoos you may have should not be visible.

**Please be aware that your physical appearance & fitness is part of your score. Team members are weighed in at first meeting and are expected to maintain optimal fitness throughout the year. There is no height/weight restriction, however our girls weight no more than 130 lbs are no taller than 5’3; and guys vary in size. This is a typical size range, but it does fluctuate from year to year. This criteria is set as a safety guideline for our guys. As long as you are adaptable to stunt with several partners you will be considered.

Tryout Process: All portions of the tryout process are closed to all except judges/coaches & staff. Candidates are encouraged to bring a water bottle/sports drink and snack (if necessary).
