The Role of the Cheerleader

"The role of the cheerleader demands that he/she be able to 'lead'.  This leadership is displayed not only on the sideline but also in the classroom and community.  The coach should strive to develop good leadership skills in all the cheerleaders on his/her team.  This personal development takes much time and effort, but the results will be evident.  Cheerleading is a fantastic way for young people to develop skills that will last a lifetime."


2020-21 NISD Middle School Cheerleading Constitution & Guidelines

Coached by: Lainie Lugo

We are excited to announce that NISD will conduct Virtual Tryouts for the 2020 Middle School Cheer season!  

Tryouts will be conducted through video submission from May 4th to May 8th.  The Virtual Tryout Submission link will be posted on THIS PAGE and will accept submissions from May 4th to May 8th.  Late submissions will not be considered.  A panel of two judges (not affiliated with Adams) will score each video submission using the NISD Score Card that was presented at the Informational Meeting.  Tryout results will be posted to this page no later than May 11th.  All other tryout procedures set forth in the NISD Cheer Guidelines still apply.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!  Until May, keep practicing and stay healthy!

The Tryout Video Submission form consists of two sections: 
Part 1 - Candidates Information:  Candidates will need a screenshot/photo of their first SEMESTER report card to upload into the first section of the form in addition to basic information.  Report cards can be accessed in the Home Access Center.  

If you have already submitted this information, meaning you have turned in a completed packet, you will not have to upload your report card again. YOU WILL have to fill out the candidate information though, just minus the upload of your report card. 

Part 2 -Video Submission:  Candidates will upload videos of their complete tryout process.  Up to 5 videos can be added to the form.  A mock tryout video has been posted below as an example.  Please review the NISD Scoring Card to familiarize yourself with the scoring process.
