  1. Applicant should arrive at tryout on time, with a completed application. Applications will be available on-site.

  2. Applicants will complete a one-on-one interview with Judges. (The current Squad will not be present in order to maintain privacy.)

  3. Immediately following the interview, applicants may be asked to perform a 30-second improvisational skit with items commonly found in the TAC or Joe Aillet Stadium. The skit helps gauge the applicants’ on-the-fly creativity.

Skits will be judged on creativity, energy and physical exaggeration. Try to make the Judges laugh! This must be family friendly because crowds range in age from one month to 117 years.

Finalists invited to move on to Round 2 will be notified within 24 hours!

PART 2?!

You bet your bottom dollar there is! Finalists will be invited to get in-suit and interact with cheer try-out participants on that Sunday. This portion is open to the public. This will help decide who has the best potential to be an energetic, creative and fun mascot!
