Watch Videos online and learn material.
Record yourself doing a short introduction stating your name, hometown, class for 22-23 year and why you want to be a member of the FSU Cheer Team.
Record the following skills in order with no edits (do not stop recording, do not record skills individually, you are being judged on endurance as well as skill).
If you are using a cheer gym, please use a foam floor and not a spring floor (we ask that at the beginning of your video you show the floor you are using – pick up floor so we can see what is under mat)
Video must be uploaded and set as unlisted on a video-hosting site (i.e. YouTube or can use a google link).
Clearly label the online video with first and last name. Please set as “unlisted” and email link & a head shot to Coach Staci Sutton at [email protected].
Videos will not be accepted any other way. If you do not receive a response from your email link, it was NOT received. Please give Coaching Staff 24 hours to reach out, confirming submission. The FSU physical packets will not be required for virtual tryouts but you will need to ensure that you complete the attached 2022-2023 Virtual Tryouts Waiver and fill out the online questionnaire.
Virtual tryout decisions will be posted online through our social media outlets. An email will be sent to athletes selected for in person tryouts on April 20th.
