Informational Meeting (optional)
This informational meeting will consist of filling out personal info sheets, a presentation on frequently asked questions (cost, time commitment, etc), and a portion in which you can ask the captains any questions you may have about the team/tryouts.
Wednesday, April 24th 2019 5:30pm - 6:30pm SpHC 191 - Hall of Fame Room (map below)
Tryout Practices (first practice is mandatory)
This first practice is mandatory because on this night, the cheers and school song that will be performed at tryouts will be taught to students trying out.
The second practice is optional but highly recommended. This practice is when the captains will pair you with a tryout partner. The captains will be available to answer any and all questions you have about the cheers, school song, or tryouts in general.
The first portion of tryouts will take place at Heritage Arena in West Duluth. This part of the tryout is where you will show us your abilities on figure skates. Things we are looking for: ability to skate forward/backward, stop forward/backward, perform school song on ice, complete up to three tricks (no jumps).
Saturday, April 27th 2019 6am - 7:30am Heritage Arena (directions below) 120 S 30th Ave W. Duluth, MN 55806
The second portion of tryouts is the land portion. In the same location as the tryout practices, you will be expected to perform school song and cheers in front of captains and judges with your tryout partner. Judges will be looking for: tight arm movements, ability to stay on the beat, correct body movements, and a positive appearance.

First Team Meeting/Contract Signing
After tryouts, the judges will deliberate and determine the new members of the 2019-2020 Hockey Cheer Team. All students who tried out will receive an email stating if they made the team or not. All members will be given a location and time the same day of tryouts in which they will bring their club fees and sign their contract.
