BV Cheer Tryouts


Tryouts will be Thursday, November 13 at 3:20 after school in the BVS Commons area. Tryout Practices are after school Monday and Tuesday in the Art Room.

If you haven't gotten your parent permission slip and your 3 teacher recommendation sheets in to me, please do it as soon as you can. I can't make a final selection without the teacher evals and I can't let you tryout next Thurs without the parent permission slip.

Attached is a PDF that has an example of how I crunch my numbers, which includes teacher recommendations (based on NHS and 5 Pillar Character Ed. attributes), GPA, and your evaluation scores. The PDF also has an example of the judge's form. It's based on competition judging forms from NCA, UCA, and COA. You'll all perform the same cheer and chant together for the judges, and then return individually to perform the same cheer, chant, as well as a few chants of their own.

A lot of people in Dunlap have been commenting to me all Fall about how unfortunate it is that we have so few people go out for cheer and then end up having people quit before the season's over. One person even suggested getting rid of cheer leading and having the drill squad lead cheers at games. Bring back Cheer at BV!

This is your chance to show that Boyer Valley students really do have school spirit, pride, and commitment!

Thanks, see you next week.
