High School Cheer Tryout Clinic

Prepare for tryouts this year with KC Cheer’s three-step program designed to teach fundamental skills and build confidence completing the tryout process. 

Step One - February 19 3:00-5:00PM

Price - $35

The ability to quickly pick up and perform cheers/dances is highly valuable in potential athletes. Practice these skills in step one where you will learn and perfect motions, jumps, sideline cheers, chants and a dance.

Step Two - February 27 4:30-5:30PM

Price - Included

Trying out for a high school squad can be daunting. Get comfortable with formal tryout process in step two: the mock tryout. You will perform the skills learned in step one and receive judge evaluations as well as constructive criticism. 

Step Three - Multiple sessions

Price - $5

Come work on material specific to your school’s program with the help of our certified coaching staff. This is a good opportunity to solidify the cheers, chants, dances, etc. you will be performing at your tryout. Multiple sessions of step three will be offered to correlate with your program’s clinic/tryout dates.
