Cheerleading is a difficult and time-consuming sport. Our season runs from June - March. We ask that you seriously consider the time commitment involved. Southwest cheerleading must be your child's number one priority as far as activities/sports involvement. Student's placement on a team will be decided upon a number of conditions: Skill, position, and experience. Tumbling is not required to become a member of the Southwest Cheerleading program; however it is a helpful skill. The teams will be judged by an impartial panel of judges. There will be graduating seniors involved with try-outs however they have no say in any aspect of the tryout procedure or scores.
