The Purdue University cheerleading squad will be hosting two college prep clinics in 2011! The first clinic will be held on Saturday, February 5 and the second will be held on Sunday, April 10. There will be a coed clinic from 11:00-2:00 and an all-girl clinic from 3:00-6:00 on both days at the Intercollegiate Athletic Facility (next to Mackey Arena). Registration and check-in for the coed clinic will be from 10:00-11:00 for the coed clinic and from 2:00-3:00 for the all-girl clinic.
There are two purposes for these clinics:
1. For any high school senior or current college student interested in trying out for the 2011-2012 squad, you MUST attend one of these dates to earn a bid to tryout for next year's squads.
2. For any high school aged cheerleader who would like to tryout for Purdue when they do become a senior, anybody who wants to know what a college cheerleading tryout is like and to learn from the Purdue cheerleading squad and coaching staff.
Tryouts for next year's teams will be on Saturday, April 16 and Sunday, April 17. Details about tryouts will be given out to those who earn a bid at the end of each clinic.
Once again, new for next year is that each athlete has to earn a bid to tryout from one of these clinics. Girls who would like to tryout for both the coed and all-girl or small squad must attend either just the coed clinic or both. It is highly suggested that you attend both.
Girls who are interested in only trying out for the all-girl or small coed squad must only attend the all-girl clinic.
To sign up, please fill out this form and mail it in, or go to www.conf.purdue.edu/cheer to sign up online. If you register online, please do not forget to bring your medical waiver form that's a part of the online form!
Anybody who has conflicts on both of these dates and are unable to attend, but would still like to tryout for the 2011-2012 Purdue Cheerleading squad, please contact head coach Steve Solberg at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately to work something out.
Any other questions about the clinic can also be directed to Coach Solberg.
