KC Cheer holds tryouts for the allstar program at the end of April/beginning of May each year, but we accept new athletes year round. If you miss the April clinics, you can always contact us to schedule a private tryout at any time of year and we will find a place for you depending on the needs of our teams.
FOR ATHLETES: Skill Self-Evaluation sheet
Sign ups for the cheer prep program take place in June, and then again in September. We will post that information as it becomes available.
Tryout Clinic Registration
Cheerleaders must be registered online in order to participate in tryout clinics. Registration fee is $40.00 and cheerleaders should register for any one of the three (3) posted clinic days. New athletes and Current KC Cheer athletes not attending any post season competition with KC Cheer (Worlds or The Summit) must attend one of the tryout clinics. Current KC Cheer athletes who are attending a post season event do NOT have to attend one of the tryout clinics. However, you MUST register for the tryout. You will not be charged the clinic fee, but this will indicate your intention to return for the 2018-2019 season. Coaches are using post season events in place of your evaluation to properly place athletes in their practice groups for May.* Cheerleaders will not be able to participate in tryout clinics if they have not registered online.
Parent Informational Meetings
Parents are required to attend one of the available parent informational meetings to learn about the basics of our program, fill out appropriate paperwork and ask questions of our owners and office management. All parents are required to attend this meeting, even if their cheerleader is going to a post season event. Extra forms will be available online in our forms section, but it is required that parents attend at least one meeting. Meetings will be held on April 14, 2018 at 1:00 p.m., and April 17, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. All meetings will be held in the arena.
Update: We will be having one more additional tryout informational meeting on Tuesday, May 8 at 5:30 p.m.
After registering online, athletes will attend at least one of the following clinics:
- April 21, 2018: 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
- April 24, 2018: 5:00-7:00 p.m.
- May 8, 2018: 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Cheerleaders will be evaluated during tryout clinics and placed into practice groups based on skill and age level for the month of May. Staff will continue to evaluate cheerleaders during May in order to build the final teams for the season. Team placements will be announced on May 27.
If you have any questions prior to the informational meetings please email Kristi Whitney.
