Why tryout for ASU Cheer?
ASU Cheer is a fun but competitive cheerleading program. We compete at the Collegiate Division IA Level 6 Show Cheer. The team has a good time, but they focus on continuously improving themselves and the team as the season progresses. It is a great place to meet friends with the same interests and make friendships that last for a lifetime. During competition season the team competes between 4-6 times per season, with at least 1 competition in the Phoenix area.
Besides competition, the team also supports ASU by performing at a variety of events such as Homecoming and Devilpalooza. Additionally, we support our local community through outreach events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Light the Night with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Toys for Tots.
Participants are expected to uphold a high standard of participation, respect, and consideration for not only the cheer team, but for Arizona State University as well.
Summer: We expect you to condition throughout the summer and stretch so you are prepared for the season.
Fall/Spring: The times you will need to be available for cheer practice are: Tuesdays and Thursdays 8:30-10:30pm. You MUST schedule your classes around these times! Performances, competitions, appearances, fundraisers are usually scheduled on the weekends with at least two weeks notice.
