Cheer and Dance Programs to Hold Tryouts March 30-31

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - The Northern Arizona University cheer and dance programs will be holding open tryouts for both squads on March 30-31, 2012 in the Rolle Activity Center on south campus.

The NAU Cheer and Dance Programs are a great way to become actively involved within the University while meeting new people.  Members will be cheering and dancing at all home football, basketball, and volleyball games along with special event appearances. At the discretion of the coaches and the director the Cheer and Dance team will compete in one selected national competition. 

The NAU Dance Team Placed 5th in Division 1 Hip Hop in 2007, 4th in Division 1 Hip Hop in 2008, 14th in Division 1 Jazz in 2010, 12th in Division 1 Jazz in 2011 and 12th in Division 1 Jazz in 2012. We are proud of our success at UDA College Nationals and hope to continue to rise nationally in the years to come.

As members of the NAU Athletic Program, the teams will receive priority enrollment, academic assistance via the athletics study hall, strength and conditioning coaches and uniforms.  Come tryout for the teams and have the experience of a lifetime.

Requirements for tryouts include a commitment of 20-plus hours of week for practice, strength and conditioning, and promotional events. Additional time will be required for NAU Athletic events such as football, women's volleyball, and both the men's and women's basketball.

Before registering for a tryout slot, each participant must be enrolled as a full time NAU student for the upcoming school year and carry 15 credit hours per semester. In addition, a 2.0 cumulative grade point average must be maintained each semester.

Registration is required prior to the tryout date. To register, download the tryout packet link and submit the information to Coach Laughlin no later than 5:00 pm, Monday, March 19, 2012.
