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.
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.
Please read tryout information and requirements below before applying through the form.
We do not require anyone to have any experience in cheerleading or gymnastics in advance. 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:
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.
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 Monday 19:30-21:30 and Sunday 20:00-22:00 (starting 26th of September). During game-weeks, expect additional mandatory practices.
The selected team will represent Lunds Akademiska Cheerleadingförening for two terms and will have to pay a fee each term. Please mention in the tryout form if you are an international student and for how long you are staying in Sweden.
This year we will have dancing and stunting tryouts on site. You apply to the tryout through the form on this page. In the form, you can choose to apply as a “Dancer & Stunter” OR “Stunter Only”:
Dancer & Stunter: As a “Dancer & Stunter”, you will have a designated spot in all dances. Below on this page, there is a short choreography. We will expect you to know the choreography when you come to the tryouts as you will show the dance to us on the spot.
In our team we expect everyone to be a part of stunting, thus one cannot be a “dancer only”. Therefore you will also go through a stunting tryout the 19th of september. The tryouts will be at ISLK-hallen in groups. Come prepared in training clothes and make sure to warm up in advance. During the stunting tryout time you will learn how to do a double-base and if possible additional stunting skills.
Stunter Only: You will be called to a tryout the 19th of september. The tryouts will be at ISLK-hallen in groups. Come prepared in training clothes and make sure to warm up in advance. During the tryout time you will learn how to do a double-base and if possible additional stunting skills.
Gymnastics: If you have any skills in gymnastics that you want us to know of, please state this in the form. You do not need to attach video footage of your skills nor show them “live” during the stunting tryout.
We will be sending out a schedule for the tryouts by e-mail after the form has closed. We will only include the first letter of your last name (together with your first name) in the schedule. If you have any problem with this, please let us know in the form.
