2018-2019 Tryout/Clinics Information

Tryouts/Evaluations: All Star ELITE & PREP Cheer & Dance


We are so excited you are interested in competitive cheer and dance! We will be holding a tryout session on April 28 for both All Star PREP & ELITE cheer and dance. We do our best to make this process as low-stress as possible. Athletes (5&up) will be given opportunities to demonstrate skills and show off a short, easy routine in small groups. If you plan to tryout and are able, you must attend the appropriate clinic, so your athlete has enough time to learn the routine. At tryouts, the coaches will spend only a small amount of time actually teaching the routine. Please see below for more information on the clinics. We understand if you are unable to attend the clinics, so there is a option where you can sign up for just the tryouts on April 28. The enrollment deadline is April 26 (Thursday). EVERYBODY will make a team!

  • Cheer & Dance Tryouts - April 28 (Saturday), 1:00-4:00 p.m
If you are only able to do tryouts, enrollment for just tryouts is available through our parent portal. If you don't already have an parent portal account, please create one by clicking on the "Create Account" button and following the instructions. ( Note: this account will be used throughout the season to sign up for additional class if desired, payment, etc.) If you have further questions, please e-mail memphiselite_desoto@yahoo.com to discuss. If you & your athlete are unable to attend clinics and tryouts date, don't worry! Get in touch with us to discuss other options at memphiselite_desoto@yahoo.com.

To prepare for the 2018-2019 tryouts, clinics will be held during the week leading up to tryouts. This will help ensure the tryout process is as low-stress as possible. Attendance is highly recommended at the clinics; clinics give the coaches more time to spend with the athletes and make the best evaulations. Also, clinics will give the athlete plenty of time to learn the short, easy routine that they will show off in small groups at tryouts. The routine will include certain skills that is expected from each level of cheer / dance such as stunts and tumble passes. The enrollment for cheer clinic is open until April 21, and the dance clinic is open until April 23. Enroll by April 11 for either clinic to get a FREE t-shirt!!
