Tryouts Information

Tryouts for the Eastern Florida State College Cheerleading team take place annually, or by term as needed. All prospective cheerleaders must be enrolled in at least six credit hours at EFSC and maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA. We ask that students be able to make a full academic-year commitment if selected. All tryouts are closed, meaning that friends and parents are not permitted to stay and watch.
