-Must have minimum 3.0 GPA (term before tryouts, and cumulative) to audition for cheerleading. 

- To tryout you may not have any F, NC, or I grades.

--To remain eligible cheerleaders may not have any F, NC, or I grades while on the team. If you have any of these you will be placed on probation until it is resolved.

-In order to make grades, cheerleaders need to be in class. 

-The 3.0 must be maintained as a cheerleader.  If the cheerleader receives below a 3.0 GPA on a printed report card the cheerleader will be on probation until the next PRINTED report card. (This means she will still attend practice, and games but will not participate.)  If the cheerleader receives below a 3.0 GPA on the next report card, she will be dismissed from the squad. 

- At the tryout clinics you will be running a timed 1 mile. You can bring running shoes and headphones. 

-Cheerleaders will be awarded elective credit. This is important to keep in mind for graduation credits. 

-Final team selection will also take into consideration prior years performance, attitude, discipline and overall contribution to the team.
