What to expect at Tryouts

During tryouts, athletes are placed on teams according to age and all-around skill. Sometimes an athlete will “age out” this is when they are too old to be on a youth team must be moved to a junior or senior team.

What’s the difference between a Senior Level 2 and Youth Level 2Actually, it is the same level, just older athletes. In fact, being the oldest in a division usually is an advantage. For example, a Senior team comprised of mostly athletes ages 14-18 will have a competitive advantage over a Youth team with most cheerleaders ages 9-12. While age isn’t the sole factor of success, being in a developmentally appropriate age level does make a huge difference. Competing is more fun when you’re on a team with friends who have common interests and the same maturity level.
