Helpful hints for making the team:

  • For all skills demonstrated, show the highest level of difficulty that can be well executed.  For example, a well-executed toe touch jump is better than a poorly done pike jump.
  • Use good motion technique.
  • Voice, expression, inflection, and volume count.
  • Make sure the video is clean.  If there are mistakes, DO IT OVER!
  • Appearance isn’t scored, but please be neat.
  • Applicants from the same school should use individual material.
