Welcome to Raider CheerleadingThis fall, Scarsdale High School will field two Cheerleading teams:
- Varsity is for the top players, regardless of grade-level.
- JV is for players to develop their skills and capabilities. (Note: The JV team is dependent upon having enough girls to field this team.)
TryoutsIn order to tryout, players must have their completed gold card from the school nurse. Information on how to get a gold card can be found atTryouts will take place in the SHS Gym A for all levels as indicated on the cheerleading calendar.Players are expected to be present at all tryout sessions. Missing sessions will be incorporated into the coach's evaluation of players for the Varsity team.Tryouts consist of assessments of individual cheerleading skills. The coaching staff also tests the athletes for general athleticism. Players are also evaluated on their cooperation with other players and their ability to take direction from the coaching staff.
Cheerleading is a commitment of about 2.5 hours per day, 5 days a week and occasional Saturday games and competitions. It is our expectation that athletes will be present for all team tryouts, scrimmages, practices, games, and tournaments.
