Cheerleader Cheering
If you thought that your in-shape body and some sharp moves will take you through a cheerleading tryout, think again! You might think of yourself as the most good-looking and flexible cheerleader around, but at the tryouts, you will be competing amongst the best. So what is it about you that will make you stand apart from the rest? Why would the judges notice you amongst all the other performers?
The first thing that most judges look for when cheerleaders perform is enthusiasm. So, the moment you walk through the door and face them, through your body language, convey to them that you are very outgoing, friendly, and extremely confident of yourself. During the trial, when you are performing the chants, do not just carry them on mechanically. Instead, let your personality shine through the act. Also, show the judges that you are a very versatile performer. Perform all kinds of moves and take various positions. Showcase the judges that you can be put in any position in the cheerleading squad. If you keep these tips in mind, your probability of being a success at the tryouts will increase manifold. Of course, a lot depends on the selection of the cheers as well. So scroll down for some of the most interesting cheers and chants, and take your pick.
Give me a B! Give me an E! Give me an S! Give me a T!
What does that spell? Best! Best! Best!
Put us to the test!
We'll beat the rest!

V-is for victory

Slice that V

Rock that C-T-O-R-Y

Stand up,
it's time to shout
Come on fans,
Yell it out
Say it loud
Say it proud
Go your (School Name)
Go! Go! Go!

Get down, get funky, get loose

"Everybody up in the stands,
make some noise and clap your hands!
Get up off your seat,
stomp your feet to the beat."

Cheer with the bears (clap, clap)

Cheer with the bears (clap, clap)
And get up off your seat (Slap Butt)
Once you get that feeling and your fingers start to (Jump back slapping your thigh)
POP (snap while saying 'pop')
Cheer with the bears (clap, clap)

Let's go! (clap, clap, clap)
Let's fight! (clap, clap, clap)
Let's win (clap, clap, clap)
Let's go, let's fight, let's win tonight

While preparing moves and motions with these cheers, include lots of variety such as claps, stomping, slapping on the thighs, etc. In the end, if you do not get through the tryout, do not feel disheartened. Instead, start preparing for the next one. And if you do get through, carry on with the same positive attitude, impress your coach with your hard work and skills, so that you continue this winning streak in your next year's tryouts as well. All the best!
