2020-2021 TEAM TRYOUTS
COME AND JOIN THE FAMILY
TCA Team Tryouts
SEE TRYOUT PACKET FOR MORE INFORMATION.
(Please email us if you have not yet received your packet)
All ages, levels, and abilities are welcome! If you are unable to make tryouts, please contact us to schedule a tryout.
Team placements are a low-stress, practice-like environment. Athletes will work with other athletes of similar age and/or skill level. They will be able to demonstrate their abilities in stunting, tumbling, jumps, and performance. We encourage all ages and levels to tryout. We aim to have a team for everyone and it is unlikely that an athlete will not be placed on a team. In the event that does happen, we offer cheer prep and tumbling classes. Please see tryout packet for more information.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What can I expect at tryouts?
A: At tryouts, we will evaluate the athletes in groups. They will be evaluated based on their flexibility, tumbling skills, stunting skills, and jumps. We try to make it fun and exciting so it is not stressful for the athletes
Q:Will tryouts be different due to Covid19?
A: Due to Covid19, we will have students sign up for a tryout spot on our website. We will have 5 kids per half hour. Please have your student bring a mask. Masks will be worn coming and going from the gym. During the tryout, we will have students spaced out more than 10 feet apart so they can take off their masks.
Q: How are teams made at tryouts?
