The distinguishing feature and reason for the existence of DeLaSalle’s student activity offerings is to assist students in their religious, spiritual, and moral formation as well as provide for the student a better understanding of how all activities at DeLaSalle support its mission. All co-curricular offerings strive to promote a Christian environment while enriching not only our students but also the greater community.

we have selected. The final decisions are made by the coaching staff and judges.

Skills

You will be asked to execute the skills listed below for tryouts. If you haven’t mastered all skills, do not be discouraged. We are not looking for perfection at this time, but we do want you to concentrate and perfect the skills that play to your strengths. In addition to the skills listed you will be observed throughout the tryout practices on your attitude, ability to learn and make changes, enthusiasm, projection and overall performance. We will be looking for current and potential skills to become a DLS cheerleader.

Tryout material and Requirements

Stunting: We will be watching your stunting throughout tryouts and looking for your potential and willingness to learn.

Working on more than one position will benefit you. We will hold a separate JV Competition tryout on October 15th, however, you are able to make the JV team at Varsity tryouts in August. If possible, we highly suggest you try out at the Varsity tryout.
