Try outs are approaching!!

Try outs are approaching, and we are preparing to become an official UM Sport Association.
This means the structure of our team is changing. At the try outs you have the opportunity to try out for the first, and second UM Cheerleading teams. The first team will be performing at most competitions, while the second team will perform locally in Maastricht. We’re looking for bright, new, talented and spirited people to join us in the new skills and challenges we take on as a team next year.
Boys and girls will be trying out together – but tryouts will be organized so that girls and boys are scored separately.

Girls will be testedย on their skills in terms of:

  • Choreographies (how quickly you learn them and cleanly you perform them)
  • Flexibility (splits, back flexibility)
  • Jumps (we will teach you how to do cheer jumps at the try out)
  • Stunting skills (body tension and strength is important here)
  • Gymnastics/tumbling skills (any flips, cartwheels, round offs, etc.)
  • Motivation in general

Boys will be tested on their skills in terms of:

  • Strength (you need to lift a girl….)
  • Ability to pick up technique for lifting girls
  • Motivation in general
