Varsity Spirit Announces Resources for Virtual Tryouts
5 May, 2020
Varsity Spirit, a division of Varsity Brands, is offering several free virtual resources to cheer and dance coaches who cannot host in-person tryouts for next year’s teams.
These include a virtual tryout guide with routine videos, music, document samples and tips; a communications app to organize a virtual tryout; and experts in the spirit industry to act as judges and assist with student selection. They represent the first virtual, at-home training classes from Varsity Spirit. More information is available here.
With a 1:25 ratio, athletes will receive personal instruction and feedback from top Varsity Spirit instructors and have the opportunity to meet other athletes from across the country, similar to a Varsity Spirit camp.
Varsity University, the developer of cheerleading and dance coaching education programs, is hosting a series of virtual conferences offering continuing education and professional development to dance and cheer coaches, featuring a lineup of top cheer and dance speakers from across the country.
“The world needs spirit now more than ever,” said Bill Seely, president of Varsity Spirit. “We have been working around the clock to find creative solutions for the students and communities we serve and are proud to launch a number of initiatives that will spread a little cheer and help create a sense of normalcy. We will be announcing additional initiatives in the weeks and months ahead.”
