1. How do Cali Coast Tryouts work?

Participants will try out in a "clinic" like setting.  If you pre-register you can select a tryout time.  We will have mixed levels to accommodate everyone's schedules. There will be group jumping, tumbling, and a short motions sequence.  For higher levels, we may ask a flyer to stunt on the coaches, but for the most part, stunting will not be part of your tryout.  Participants may be broken into groups depending on tumbling skills. There will be a judge assigned certain tryout numbers who will be scoring the cheerleaders.  The judging sheet is posted here for you to veiw it.  24 Hours after tryouts you will recieve an email that gives you the team placement.  Practice begins that week.   Please read the packet and familiarize yourself with the dates and payments section.

2. What level am I ready for?

Level 1 team: If you are new to cheer, or have skills up to a back walkover, or front walkover, you will be placed on the level 1 team. 

Level 2 team:You must have a solid standing and running back handspring to be on this team.

Level 3 team: We will have one level 3 team this season.  It will either be a junior team (ages 8-14) or a Senior team (ages 11-18) depending on the ages of the cheerleaders who try out in this level).  You must have a solid tuck (round off tuck, roundoff handspring tuck, front tuck, aerial)  and a toe touch standing double handspring connected.

Level 4 team: Level 4 skills include, Standing tucks, toe touch handspring tucks, layouts, and combo passes. Cheerleaders must be able to through all three and have advanced jumps and stunting skills to be on this level.

3. I can't make the tryout date, can I still try out?

Yes, but you need to schedule your private tryout before June 3rd.  The private tryout will be a 15 minute private session with a cce coach. You will still be charged the $20 tryout fee. The coach will have you tumble, jump, and do some motions.  If you have never cheered before it is okay, they will teach you. Email coachbetty@calicoastelite.com to have a private tryout.
