Champ

Do you have what it takes to fill the shoes? Champ tryouts are a fun-filled experience and a great way to show off your school spirit. Champ, Louisiana Tech University mascot, is one of the most recognized and beloved members of the Tech family. The chosen candidate will be trained to be one of the nation’s top college mascots and icons for Louisiana Tech Alumni, Friends, Family, Faculty, Athletes, and Students.

Tryouts:  TBD

Where:  Lambright Intramural Sports Center

How long:  Depends on the number of applicants

What to bring:  Workout/running clothes to wear while in-suit, towel, change of clothes, water, and a positive attitude

Requirements

  • Must be a full time student and have Bulldog Pride 24/7
  • Must have and maintain a minimum 2.3 cumulative GPA
  • Must be between 5’ 6” and 6’ 0” (due to suit restrictions)
  • Must be in good physical condition, with good health
  • Must be good with kids and able to perform at a moment’s notice

What will I do at the tryout?

  1. Applicant should arrive on time, with a completed application.
  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 will be invited to move on to Round 2.

PART 2?!

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