When is next tryouts?

The tryouts for the team of 20/21 has already taken place. We will let you know on our social media when the next tryouts will occur, but most likely during the beginning of the autumn term 2021.

We really hope to see you at tryouts next year! 

Positions to tryout for:

Stunters

They display builds and throws during performances and are divided into flyers, bases, front- and back spots. No worries if you haven’t done it before, just be prepared to learn!

Dancers

High energy performers who love putting on a show. They have a designated spot in all dances in the routine. All dancers are also expected to stunt in the routine.

gymnasts

They perform acrobatic routines. There will be some opportunities to train gymnastics during practices, but we mostly rely on availability of previous experience in the team.

Requirements

We do not require anyone to have any experience in cheerleading or gymnastics in advance. We will build a team from scratch and start from the basics. Previous experience is of course meritorious and if you have any, please mention that in the sign-up form!

Lund Cheer is a part of Akademiska Föreningen (AF), hence all athletes must be a member of AF. You are a member of AF if you have paid for a membership in Studentlund. Other requirements to be part of the team:

  • All team members should agree to the purpose of the association according to §2 in the statutes (see About us”).
  • All team members must agree to the alcohol- and drug policy according to §3 mom 4 in the statutes, which says that members must never be under the influence of alcohol or drugs during practices and that there is a zero tolerance for pushing people to drink alcohol (“alkoholhets”) outside of practices.
  • All team members are expected to have a casualty insurance (olycksrisk / skadeförsäkring). If not, members are solely responsible for any injuries that may occur. The coaches will always bring a first aid kit to practices.

In Lunds Akademiska Cheerleadingförening, everyone is welcome as they are; bullying, macho culture, and boring attitudes are strictly prohibited, as are violations based on sexuality, gender, body, socioeconomic background, age, ethnicity, etc.

Our time commitment

We want students who apply to be aware of that cheerleading is a sport that requires full attendance from everyone in the team. There are exceptions, of course, but generally we expect team members to prioritize the practices by having good study planning and dedication. As soon as people cannot make it to practice, the rest of the team will suffer from it and will not be able to perform the desired stunts anymore.

Schedule: Practice every Tuesday, 18:00-20:00. Choreography practices may be added every now and then. During game-weeks, expect additional mandatory practices.

First event: the 28th of November 2020. When you apply for tryouts, we would like to know already now if you can participate or not. If you cannot participate, this may affect your chances of making the team. See page ”Events” for more information.

The selected team will represent Lunds Akademiska Cheerleadingförening for two terms.

Thank you for your interest in Lund Cheer!
