Frequently Asked Questions


I can't make tryouts! Can I still join?

Absolutely. We understand that people have other commitments that might clash with tryouts, while we encourage athletes to come to our main tryouts in July, if for any reason you can't make it, let us know by email: and we can make alternative arrangements. We believe that tryouts are not only a way for us to see you as an athlete and understand your skill level and work ethic, but also for you to experience how the team trains and decide if its the right place for you. 

Can I compete and coach on other cheerleading teams?

Of course! As long as you are able to attend training and there are no issues with crossing over at competition, then we are happy for you to do it.

Training more regularly is a great way to improve your skills faster! If you're the kind of athlete that wants to train every day, we want to encourage you to do that!

What does it mean to be a part of an Adult team?

There is a difference between how adults learn and how kids learn, being on an adult team means that you can be in a learning environment that's best suited to your learning experience.
