On Friday, hundreds of incoming first year students swarmed Elon’s campus for spring orientation. Among campus tours, learning about majors and having their photo taken for student ID cards, some students made the choice to take the first step in becoming student athletes.
As the day’s activities came to an end and most students returned to their hotels for the night, tryouts began. Students underwent three hours of intense tryout activities. The tryouts tested student’s skills in cheering, dancing, stunting and tumbling.
As an Elon cheerleader, athletes need to be at the top of their game at each and every outing, looking
professional while ensuring safety for everyone is top priority.
On Saturday afternoon, students will return to perform their official tryouts. This final test will be the deciding factor as to whether or not they receive an acceptance letter after the April tryouts.
