Cheerleading tryouts are similar to any tryouts for anything else. I mean really you go to a meeting prior to tryouts where the coaches usually explain everything that you need to know for tryouts. Like, what you have to wear, what to bring, when and where it is, and all that info.

Tryouts itself is really where you learn a number of cheers (usually 2-4) and then a dance. You also learn proper techniques for arm motions, tumbling, and of course, jumps. Spiriting is also something they will review with you. It lasts for a few days.

When it comes to the actually Tryout day, you group with a few girls and perform in front of the coaches (or judges) and get scored. Then its a waiting game to find out if you made the team.

Hope that helps :]
