Tryout Application Closed

The tryouts for the team of 21/22 will take place on the 27th of September! The team will consists of students studying at Lund University and everyone is welcome to apply for the tryouts. No previous experience is needed – so what are we looking for?

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.

Form Deadline

20th of September, 23:59

Tryout

27th of September

Location

ISLK Hallen, 19:00-21:00

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.

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 Monday, 19:00-21:00 (starting 4th of October). Choreography practices are added every two weeks as well (on Sundays, only mandatory for the dancers). During game-weeks, expect additional mandatory practices.

The selected team will represent Lunds Akademiska Cheerleadingförening for two terms and will have to pay a small fee each term. Please mention in the tryout form if you are an international student and for how long you are staying in Sweden.

The Tryout

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 primarily dance and 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 27th 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. NOTE: this will be done in groups of 4 with complete strangers. If you do not want to participate in the stunting tryout because of COVID-19, we expect you to send in a video of your stunting skills and the choreography.

Stunter Only: You will be called to a tryout the 27th 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. NOTE: this will be done in groups of 4 with complete strangers. If you do not want to participate in the stunting tryout because of COVID-19, we expect you to send in a video of your 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.
