    For Echols cheer tryouts, girls will have a 3-day clinic where they learn a dance, 2 cheers, and work on jumps and tumbling. They will perform a toe touch and an optional jump, either a hurdler or a herkie. There is no tumbling requirement, but girls can perform a tumbling skill for bonus points. If you have a standing back handspring you should be fine. Other skills girls commonly do are round off back handspring or round off back handspring back tuck.
    Thank you so much for your interest in Echols Cheer! Go Wildcats!
