    both individually and in a group setting for evaluation. ALL tryout participants will be asked to demonstrate any tumbling (standing & running) that can be

    performed without a spotter. While tumbling is NOT required, it is strongly suggested and can be the determining factor for team selection.

    choose to compete. We do NOT guarantee level placement; however, we do attempt to place each child who chooses to

    tryout.
