Dear Cheer Candidates and Parents,
Due to the unforseen circumstances of Covid-19 and the possibility of not returning to school until May 4th or later, we need to make some alterations to the cheer tryouts for this school year. After much discussion, it has been decided by the administration that we will hold “virtual tryouts”.
Each candidate will be asked to make a video recording of their dance, cheer, and chant on a device and then email that to email@example.com. All videos need to be submitted by April 9th. At that time, Kyle Kuehler, our instructional technologist, will combine all videos of the candidates and send a copy to each of our 5 judges, all from Texas Tech University. They will be viewing these videos on their own and independent of one another. They will rank the junior high and high school candidates separately and return that information to Borden County Administration for tabulation. Due to students and teachers not being in school, there will be no teacher or student input for this year’s tryouts. This year’s squad will be selected solely on their tryout and evaluation of that tryout by independent judges.
We recommend that the candidate be 10 feet away from whomever is filming them. The tryout will also need to be recorded outside so that voice level can be displayed. We really would like for all candidates to look the same in the video they submit. We know this is all very strange and extremely different to do it this way, but with the current circumstances, we have no other choice. It is imperative that we get our squad secured so that uniforms can be ordered and plans can be made for camp and camp clothes. We feel like this is the only safe and objective way for the squad to be selected this year. We appreciate your help and understanding in this matter. If you have any questions, please contact Kelly Gordon.
