2018-2019 Cheerleading Clinic & Tryouts
The Catawba College Cheerleading squad will hold open tryouts for the 2018-2019 season on Saturday, April 28, 2018 in the Abernethy Physical Education Center. Tryouts will be held at 5:00 pm with check in beginning at 4:45 pm.
Tryouts are open to all current Catawba college students in good academic standing / judicial standing as well as accepted students (freshmen and transfer). Both men and women are encouraged to try out for positions on the squad for the 2018-2019 season. Participants must show proof of insurance and acceptance to Catawba College in order to tryout.
Tryouts will include all components of cheerleading, such as cheering, motions, jumps, stunting, dance and tumbling. All participants must sign a waiver/release form listing insurance provider and policy number. If under 18 years of age a parent or guardian must also sign the waiver/release form.
A prospect clinic will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2018 from 9am-Noon to allow all interested participants to work with the coaching staff and the 2017-2018 squad in preparation for tryouts. The clinic is not required in order to tryout; however, all potential cheerleaders are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.
Tryout and clinic registration forms can be found below, as well as the waiver/release form:
The objective of the Catawba College cheerleaders is to promote school spirit and add to the game day experience for athletes and fans. The 2018-2019 cheerleading squad will start their season the first week of August 2018 (date TBD) with a required camp. They will cheer at all football games as well as all home basketball games. Members will be required to participate in all scheduled activities.
About the Program
The Catawba College Cheerleading squad cheers for football season as well as men and women’s basketball season. We are also involved in some community service activities.
Team members are expected to participate in all scheduled activities: camp, games (and tournaments), practices, work outs, community service activities, performances and any judging opportunities.
Catawba College Cheerleaders will receive a scholarship for cheering. Scholarships will be given to squad members at the beginning of fall and spring semesters, with the understanding that it will be forfeited if the cheerleader doesn’t keep his or her academic standing or fails to comply with team and school rules and regulations.
To be eligible for tryouts, students must be currently enrolled with a 2.3 GPA or higher, and in good standing with the college, or an incoming freshman/transfer student who has been accepted at Catawba College.
