The Coordinators take into account current school cheerleader/dancer status, years of cheerleading experience for both coaching and participation, registration process, and past coaching experiences communicated through parent feedback, coaches’ input and surveys, to name a few.
 
The coordinators may ask groups to assist with tryouts and/or camps. Assisting with tryouts is not a guarantee as to team assignments.
 
Team assignments will be given until the beginning of July once all tryouts are completed. The goal of the coordinators is to provide every cheerleader with the best experience. The Teen Coaches greatly impact this experience.
