1. How do Cali Coast Tryouts work?

Participants will try out in a "clinic" like setting. 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. 

 

2. What level am I ready for?

Level 1 team: You are new to cheer, or have skills up to a back walkover, or front walkover.

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

3. I CAN'T MAKE THE TRYOUT DATE, CAN I STILL TRY OUT?

Yes, but you need to schedule your private tryout before the tryout date The private tryout will be a 25 minute private session with a CCE coach. You will still be charged the $30 private lesson 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. You can book private tryout through our "private lessons" page.
