2021-2022 Tryout Information

Becoming a Waukesha South Cheerleader is where all the fun begins! You will attend camps, games, pep rallies, competitions, and many other exciting events! We are a co-ed program and welcome ALL Waukesha South students who are interested in cheerleading. 

Cheer is a demanding sport. Our season begins in May and does not end until March, with practices and games throughout each week. As a top representative of Waukesha South, you will become a role model to many. You are required to keep good grades, be respectful, have a positive attitude, and be a role model in your school and in your community. Your grades will be considered in your tryout. 


No experience is required to tryout for our team as we have many different team offerings built to suit your skill level!

This season we plan to take at least one of our Varsity teams to UCA Nationals in Florida to compete in the tumbling )non-stunting) division. Fore more info on all of our teams and their requirements, check out the Team Openings tab!


Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Varsity Coach Marissa Hernandez at WaukeshaSouthCheer@gmail.com.
