The Rose-Hulman Cheer Team is looking for enthusiastic cheerleaders and spirit lifters for the 2013-2014 season. The cheer team will perform at all home football and basketball games. Experience preferred, but not necessary.
The tentative practices are Tuesday and Sunday evenings. (Please be aware these days and times may change.) Additional practices will be necessary to prepare for special performances. Previous Rose-Hulman cheerleaders with 2+ years team experience will not be required to try out again, however will be required to help with tryouts.
Additional Tryout Information
All candidates trying out for the 2012-2013 cheer team will be expected to learn and perform the Rose-Hulman fight song and two chants (which will be taught during tryouts).
Stunting is mandatory and all candidates must demonstrate a minimum of a double based extension.
All candidates will be required to perform three jumps at tryouts. If you have any questions about jump technique, please check out http://cheerwiz.com/cheerjum.htm for pictures and demonstrations. Candidates may select any three jumps or combinations of jumps. Candidates may choose to perform the same jump three times. Please choose your strongest jump(s). Bonus credit will be given for jumps done in combination with other jumps or tumbling skills.
Tumbling is not mandatory for selection to the RHIT cheer team, however it is a strong bonus. Tumbling skills, if used, must be performed on game surfaces. We will have mats available at tryouts for warm up purposes ONLY. There are several tumbling gyms in the Terre Haute area that offer classes for college level students. It is strongly encourage to participate in outside classes if you wish to learn tumbling skills.
Rules and Regulations
As representatives of Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, the team must conduct themselves in a professional and positive manner at all times. Game and practice attendance is mandatory (unless prior approval is requested and given by the coach for an academic reason). Fraternity and sorority schedules must be coordinated around cheerleading schedules. Team members may participate in other fall sports, but athletes intending to commit themselves to more than one sport must provide both practice and game schedule for the second sport and have the schedules approved prior to tryouts. Cheerleaders and spirit lifters may not miss games in order to participate in other sports.
Cheerleading is a NCAA sport. You may earn a varsity letter as a cheerleader and lifter at Rose-Hulman if you complete one, full year. You may earn a letter jacket following your second, full year of participation. Athletic academic policies also apply. Athletic physicals are required (please see the RHIT Athletic Training page for more information, physical dates and appropriate forms).
The Rose-Hulman Cheer Team will provide uniforms, shoes and pom-poms for the cheerleaders. Cheerleaders are responsible for paying for their own warm ups (about $80) and undergarments.
