About Texas College Spirit Team

About Our Program and Frequently Asked Questions:

We are looking for well-rounded athletes to represent Texas College at athletic events, at on-campus and off-campus appearances, and competitively. We are a hybrid squad and have all-girl as well as coed groups, so having experience as a male base or a female top girl is important in order to be a part of our program. Please review our frequently asked questions below.

Weekly Schedule:

  • Practice 3-4 days a week for 2-2.5 hours (currently we practice MTRF) *Competition practices are different*
  • Male Workouts: Three days a week (MWF)
  • Female Workouts: Two days a week (TTh)
  • TC Study Hours – You will be required to complete five hours in Study Hall.

Program Requirements:

  • TRYOUTS: In order to try out for our program, you must receive complete an interview request form. We hope to host two  clinics each semester.
  • AMBASSADORS: First & foremost, you must be able to represent Texas College 24/7 365 days a year! As a Texas College Cheerleader and Mascot, you are well-known, and you must be able to handle that responsibility! This will be judged throughout the clinic process and tryout process as we get to know you. We will also look at your social media, ask for references from past coaches and have an interview portion of tryouts.
  • GAMEDAY: We cheer football, basketball, and volleyball season throughout the year so you MUST be able to represent us well on gameday! This means voice, smile, proper motion placement and sharpness.
  • TUMBLING: You must be willing to learn how to tumble or already have tumbling skills.

Other Benefits:

  • A chance to represent the BEST college and cheerleading program in the world!

We are excited you have chosen Texas College as your institution for higher education. Tryouts for the 2022-2023 season will be done in three parts – video submission, zoom interviews and an in-person tryout in August. Video submissions will determine if you are selected for an interview. The following will provide information for many questions you may have about trying out for our program. Please read thoroughly prior to calling or emailing with questions.

Success throughout the tryout process will be based on your professionalism, positive attitude and appearance, as well as the yearly commitment to our program. These areas must be maintained at tryout level throughout the year to remain on the squad.
