Hello Spiritline Candidates,
Thank you for your interest in trying out for our Spiritline. The Hillcrest Spiritline has placed multiple times in the State Cheer and Pom competition and our DVUSD regional competition. We are the only certified Sparkle Effect team in the state of Arizona. The Sparkle Effect is a national organization that works to integrate students who have high special needs onto cheer teams.
Spiritline at Hillcrest is a cut sport and tryouts are required. All of the girls who make the team cheer for Basketball games and are considered part of Spiritline. In addition, the girls who make Spirtline are required to participate in at least one of our competition teams (Cheer, Pom, or Both). Girls who exhibit good cheer and dance skills are selected for two competition teams. The competition team a Spiritline member is selected for is determined by the coach based on feedback from the tryout judges.
Our competition teams are Cheer and Pom. Competition cheer consists of routines that include tumbling and stunting. Our competition Pom team is a dance team.
Tryouts are held in early October each school year. Girls tryout in groups of two or three in front of an independent judging panel. Judges do not work at Hillcrest middle school and are selected to judge only if they have a background in cheer or dance.
The information below is the tryout material for the 2019/2020 school year.
During tryouts girls will be asked to do the following:
