Our goal is to make the 2020/2021 tryout process as simple and low-stress as possible for our athletes and families alike. Our tryout process is scheduled by level group allowing athletes to demonstrate their skills during a 2 day process. For the 2020/2021 season, the tryout process will be as follows:
Attend our Tryout Clinics: This season we will be offering 2 weeks of live virtual tryout clinics. The clinics will be lead by our coaches. We will teach content that will provide athletes with the material necessary to successfully submit a tryout routine that demonstrates theirs skills.
Levels 1 and 2 - Tryout Clinics will be Monday, May 4th and May 11th from 5:30 to 6:30 and Friday, May 8th and 15th from 5:30 to 6:30.
Levels 3 and up - Tryout Clinics will be Wednesday, May 6th and 13th from 5:30 to 6:30 and Friday, May 8th and 15th from 5:30 - 6:30
Submit or Schedule your Tryout: This season we will be holding tryouts individual routines. Tryouts will be May 16th and 17th. We are providing 2 options for submissions:
Submit Live Virtually: After attending the 2 weeks of virtual clinics, athletes will have the content necessary to perform a tryout routine. Routines will be performed virtually with live coaches reviewing and providing feedback. These sessions will be scheduled.
Schedule Private In Person: After attending the 2 weeks of virtual clinics, athletes will have the content necessary to perform a tryout routine. Routines will be performed in person at the gym with immediate review and feedback. These sessions will be scheduled.
PLEASE NOTE: Based on recent comments from our Mayor and other government officials, we anticipate that we will be opening the gym during the tryout process. Based on city recommendations and consideration of the safety of our athletes, we will adjust accordingly. IF we do reopen during this process, we will offer tryout clinics in BOTH formats - in person at the gym and live virtual class sessions.
Pro Spirit believes in athlete growth and development as well as team success, so we have teams for athletes of all ages and experience levels, therefore ALL athletes will be accepted as a part of the Pro Spirit 2020/2021 program. Program announcements will be made following tryouts on 5/18/2020.
This year, COVID-19 has created a unique challenge to our tryout process. We recognize that athletes have been out of conditioning and performing for a period of time, therefore we will utilize 2 to 3 weeks after tryouts as an athlete re-acclimation period. We want to make sure that all athletes have a period of time to adjust to training again and allow for the best opportunity for all athletes to be placed on the best team for their skill level. Therefore team announcements will be made in June.
Please note, ONLY team placements within a program level will be delayed, you still have the opportunity to select your desired program: All Star, Elevate, Hype, Little Gemz, Lucky Starz.
Our 2020/2021 tryout process is based on current local and state regulations that as of 4/22/2020 is mandating our closure. We are responsibly adhering to COVID-19 orders. Recently our Governor has made indications that businesses will be re-opening shortly. We anxiously are reviewing regulations and will open as soon as permitted. We may alter schedules and sessions based on business continuity.
We know that the 2020/2021 cheer season will be an exciting, fun and rewarding year. We also acknowledge that there might be additional questions during this time. We will be releasing a webinar on Thursday, April 30th and also host a live questions and answers session on Sunday, May 3rd. Please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org any time with any questions. We will happily schedule time to discuss any concerns or questions you may have.
