·         Many males first experience with cheerleading is once they enter our gym for tryouts and/or practice

Miami cheerleaders come from a variety of backgrounds, including cheerleading, either in high school or at all-star gyms, gymnastics, football, wrestling, etc. All squad members are expected to be great crowd leaders, tumblers, stunters, and be able to project the image of a collegiate athlete, while representing the University of Miami.  Because of these responsibilities, we are looking for skilled and talented athletes, as well as well-rounded students, who embrace the ability to be coached. 

ALL CANDIDATES must be a full-time student at the University of Miami or have been accepted and plan to attend the University of Miami for the Fall 2013 semester as a full time student. *Each candidate will be required to submit their C#.
