Our tryouts are conducted in a relaxed, fun atmosphere! We evaluate in groups & encourage participants to re-do their skills until they are satisfied with their tryout. After all candidates have been evaluated after the third tryout session, we will begin to assemble teams.
The selection of teams is a very tedious and often complicated process. Many key elements are considered in our decisions including, tumble, stunt and jump technique as well as stunt positions necessary to fill a team. We must choose a well-rounded variety of individuals for each team that take into account the team successes but also the proper progression for each individual athlete. Since our program is new, age and skill levels may be combined to help ensure the success and proper progression of all athletes.
Execution is a key category on the new score sheet. It is our goal to have MORE THAN THE MAJORITY of athletes on one team participate in ALL LEVEL APPROPRIATE SKILLS. There may be exceptions made.
**Team placements will be announced on www.evocheer.com**
**New this year we will adhere to a strict no contact rule 24 hours after team announcements are made**

What is the difference between Tiny Pre-Team and Tiny Competition?
Tiny Pre-Team is Evolution Cheer’s exhibition program for our youngest athletes. This introductory team allows children that are new to the sport the chance to learn the fundamentals of cheerleading technique in a fun, non-competitive environment. Our staff works closely with these athletes to build confidence in tumbling, stunting, jumping and routine choreography. They will work on their skills throughout the season and perform as an exhibition team at 3-4 competitions throughout the year. They will be assisted throughout the routine by our experienced, nurturing staff.
Tiny Competition provides the first opportunity for our 5 and 6 year old athletes to compete in an All Star Cheer Level 1 Division. Athletes will work on their tumbling, stunting and jumping, attend special choreography sessions with our professional choreographer and perform that routine during multiple competitions throughout the season. Routine performances are judged by a panel of judges, just like our older athletes and will be scored for awards whereas Tiny Pre-team is not. Tiny competition requires more travel than Tiny Pre-Team and a more rigorous practice schedule.
Please speak to an owner to help determine the best option for your child.
