Winter Season tryouts begin tomorrow and we couldn't be more excited! We are expecting a small squad this year, around the same size as last year's team. I am looking to fill 12 spots, so I am hopeful that will happen.
We are trying a few things different this year. First, we are having the tryout dance available to everyone ahead of time, in hopes they will learn the dance prior to coming to tryouts - this way they get more practice and we can better judge the actual performance rather than just how much has been picked up on in 2 days. We are also focusing more on stunting during the week -- with the scoring rubric changing we want to focus on the areas we can score the most points - stunting being the biggest one. We have a 2 pretty strong stunt groups heading into Winter, so we'll be looking to fill that 3rd stunt group spot.
We are also having our first "Lock-In" on Friday night at the high school. It should be a lot of fun - lots of bonding, some practice, games, activities and food. A great way to start out the season and start fresh with everyone. Our first game is only 1 week later - which is crazy! Usually we have 2 weeks!
I hope to have a good turnout tomorrow! Fingers crossed!
