AZ Champs Team Tryouts 19.20 Season

Team tryout information for AZ Champs Eclipse (Level 6) & AZ Champs Essence (Level 7) Cheer Teams…

Tryouts will consist of 2 Rounds, the first held in MAY!  Athletes making it through “Round 1” of tryouts will be invited to practice & train this summer in true “CHAMPS” style with upper level stunting, conditioning, tumbling and technique progression.

Then, in August we will have “Round 2” of tryouts for FINAL team placements for AZ Champs Eclipse & AZ Champs Essence teams for the 19-20 Cheer Season!

We encourage all current Pro, Elite and other experienced cheer athletes to participate in our “Round 1” May tryout however if you are unavailable then please tryout in August. You are not required to attend Round 1 to be eligible for Round 2, it is just great training for the summer! Pro & Elite athletes who are currently on a Nationals team, are still eligible to tryout.  Training for the summer will begin on Tuesday, June 4 & continue on Tuesday evenings from 6-7:30 p.m. through July. ($12 fee/practice)

*We will work with individual athletes on any scheduling conflicts.*
