Cheer squad sets tryouts

Tahoe Gymnastics will conduct tryouts for the Tahoe Stars competitive cheerleading squads at 4:30 p.m. today. Competitive cheerleading combines three sports into one – hip hop dance, gymnastics tumbling and cheerleading stunting.

Participants should arrive early with a parent or guardian to fill out paperwork. Bring a snack and plan to stay for team practice until 7:30 p.m. Anyone between the ages of 5 to 18 is encouraged to try out. Youths 9 to 18 years of age will be considered for the junior/senior squad and children 5 to 7 years will be considered for a mini-squad, which will be formed soon. Dance, cheer and/or gymnastics experience is recommended.

To find out the requirement for the Tahoe Stars tryouts call Angelia, cheer director, or Erin, head cheer coach, at Tahoe Gymnastics (530) 544-7314.
