Thinking about becoming part of a nationally-ranked, award-winning high school cheer squad?

 

Are you enthusiastic and love supporting Roseville High School, its sports and clubs?

 

Are you willing to work hard and strive to do your best, both in the classroom and on the cheer mat?

 

The Roseville High School cheer squad is holding tryouts for the upcoming season!

 

To try out for the squad, first attend a parent and participant meeting on Thursday, April 20 in the RHS Library. At that meeting, you will find out important information about the upcoming cheer season, including dates and costs.

 

A FREE Tryout Clinic will be held the following week at school. At the Clinic, participants will learn cheer skills, a dance sequence, and a sideline cheer. You will have the opportunity to work with the coaches and graduating seniors to increase your skills and understanding. In addition, this Clinic will give the coaches an opportunity to see your teamwork and positive attitude on display.

 

On Wednesday, April 26, you will put your new cheer skills to use at the closed-door tryouts. The judges will grade you on a number of factors, including how well you have learned the skills taught during Clinic week.

 

On Friday, April 28 at 3pm, the results of the tryouts will be posted on the Home page of this website. All participants who made the squad will be listed by number.


The Calendar contains detailed information about each day of Tryouts.

 

Additional Info

Camp

All members of the 2017-2018 Cheer squad are required to attend the UCA Cheer Camp with the rest of the squad in June. Additional information can be found on the Cheer Camp page and the Calendar


Costs

Cheer is an expensive sport. The coaches go to great lengths to keep the costs as low as possible, which means the squad will do multiple fundraisers throughout the year. All squad members are expected to participate in all fundraisers. 


Some of the costs throughout the year include: uniform, camp gear, cheer camp, poster supplies, and fundraisers (like the River Cats performance).


Cheerleaders in uniform do not pay to enter games, although their parents and family will need to pay admission at the gate and possibly parking fees. Football games cost $3-$7 per person. Premium parking at games can cost up to $5 per car.

Important dates are always listed on the Calendar. The Calendar on this website is your go-to source of all information about the team

More than a Sport

Thoughts from Coach Gretchen...


Cheerleading is more than a sport... it's a lifestyle. Being a cheerleader helps shape the person you will become and teaches you skills you will use for the rest of your life.


Cheerleading teaches you communication, cooperation, teamwork, trust, compromise, performance skills, dedication, commitment, pride and empathy. All skills you need to become a successful and productive member of society. 


Cheerleading means family. You become so close with your cheer sisters and coaches. You realize everyone counts on you. There is no second string in cheerleading. No back ups. Each athlete has a role. When one is missing you cannot perform the skills you had planned or the dances you have choreographed. 


Cheerleading requires a lot of responsibility. Your words, actions, and social media posts are a direct reflection of your team. Your reputation will be judged by what you and your teammates do and say. You will set the tone and are directly responsible for the level of school spirit. You have the ability to lead the crowd and affect the outcome of games and rallies.

Cheerleading will define your high school experience. You will make friends and create memories that will last the rest of your life.
