Cheer Memo

To date there have been many questions and concerns with the upcoming tryouts for Berkeley High’s 2019-2020 Cheer class.  This memo is intended to address those concerns with the entire cheer community, prospective cheerleaders, and their families.

Cheer Tryouts:  A Cheer Clinic will be held Tuesday, May 28, 2019 – Thursday, May 30, 2019, in the new gym at Berkeley High beginning at 4:20pm each day.  Cheer Tryouts will be held on Friday, May 31, 2019.  Athletes must have a completed physical and cheer packet to participate.  Transportation will be available from the middle school.

8th Grade Tryouts:  Students that will be attending the 8th grade prom on May 31st, will have the opportunity to have their tryout videoed by the coaching staff.  These sessions will be held at Berkeley Middle and will begin at 8:00am in the multipurpose room.  Please arrive no later than 7:45.

Video tryouts will be viewed by the judges a single time for scoring.  This will mimic scoring a live tryout.  Videos will only be re-viewed in the event of a tie (discussed below).

Cheer Teams:  Cheer Teams will be selected based on individual score cards from the judging panel.  Varsity Cheer will be made up of the top scoring cards across all grade levels.  JV and BTeam Cheer will be chosen similarly with grade levels in mind.

In the Event of a Tie:  In the event that the panel judges score a tie that would affect team selection, the Berkeley High cheer staff will be the deciding judges.  This is the only event where an athlete may be asked to perform a second time or that a video may be reviewed (one time only).   The Berkeley High coaches will not participate in the original cheer panel.

Results:  Results will be posted once all scores are tallied and teams are chosen.  All results are final.

Thank you all for your support of Berkeley Cheer.  If you have additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me by phone (843-899-8800) or email (butcherk@bcsdschools.net).
