Didn’t make the Cheerleading Team – What to do

10 Apr

How to handle not making the cheer or dance team (How to help your child cope with not making the team)

You did all the right things, you took dance and cheer classes. You attend cheer clinics and spent countless hour,

dontlookbackpracticing day and night perfecting the moves. Tryouts day hits, you look your best, you have your biggest and brightest smile possible and you shout those cheers out loud enough for the world to hear. Your dance was flawless, your jumps – sky high. You wait anxiously outside the window with everyone else who tried out. Slowly the coach walks down the hall to post the list. The list goes up and everyone rushes toward the window to search for the name, you look and look again only to find YOUR NOT ON THE LIST.

Not making the team can lead to a list of emotions and it’s hard for friends and family to know the best way to help you deal with that lost or sad feeling you may have.  First, if your a parent, you need to understand that no matter how you feel about cheerleading or dance team, this tryout was important to your child so you must respond with caring and positive comments. Let them know, not making it is not a reflection on them, each tryout is different and some factors weigh more than others. Congratulate your child for having the courage it took to even tryout. So many kids want to tryout but are too scared to do it and your child had enough courage to get out there and do his/her best.  Let them know you understand not to get something you really want in life can be hard, but its not the end of the world. Remind them of other plans they had for the school year, encourage them to join a sport they love. Remind them that their school team is not the only cheer or dance team out there. Encourage them to join an Allstars or Recreational dance or cheer program – they will meet kids from other cities, schools and in some cases can be more fun and challenging than school cheer. Don’t tell your child not to cry, encourage them to show their sadness in a healthy way.

If your the cheerleader or dancer who didn’t make it, then we want to keep a few things in mind. Most tryouts are not just based on your cheering and dancing abilities. Tryouts judges consider a variety of items when judging a competition, some wonder how you would fit in with the returning team members, sometimes your teacher referrals hold a heavier score then your overall performance, in some cases they are thinking about next season’s routine and they are trying to visualize each person doing upcoming routines, and sometimes (and sorry but this is a very sad reality) they just chose teams based on current team members friends/family or kids they just have a preference too (that sucks when it happens, but it does happen).


A couple of things to consider, if you find yourself in this situation. First, if they don’t give you tryout score sheets, ask for some constructive feedback. Usually they will give you tips for the next time you tryout. Second, consider the fact that it may not have been you at all and just something that wasn’t a good fit for them as of right now. If you ever watch the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader Show, think about the time the coaches pulled a girl in a room and a performer how much they love the her, how beautiful she is, how amazing she is but they just couldn’t see her on the team. There is nothing you can do about that, if they love you but don’t see you as a great fit, that’s just that. It’s like you meet a really awesome guy but you just can see yourself dating him, no matter how awesome he is the connection just isn’t there. That happens with cheer and dance teams too. Third, remember it is not the end of the world, you can still cheer or dance for a team. Consider joining an Allstar Cheer and Dance program. Our Nor Cali Bay Area Cheerleading loves accepting all members regardless of experience. We have met some amazing cheerleaders and dancers who didn’t make their competitive team, but they join us and they are some of our strongest performers. If you really love cheer and dance, go online and see if you can find a cheer or dance team you can join. It’s a great way to do what you had your heart set on and get the experience you may need in order to tryout for your school next year.

Good luck and always SMILE BIG!

Bay Area Competitive Cheerleading – Part Time or Full Time Athlete

3 Jan


Cheerleading and Dance Nationals are fast approaching  for most cheer and dance programs. This time of year can be fun and stressful, it brings on a mixed bag of emotions for many athletes and sometimes coaches.
Every year, coaches will meet a variety of athletes. Some are all about first place, some are all about gaining amazing technique while others are just interested in the fan-fair of being in a dance or cheerleading uniform. This is what can make Nationals a challenge. See, only focusing on 1st place or only focusing on technique but not showmanship, etc or even worst no focus other than being cute – these are all bad for the competing team.

An athlete is either fully committed or a part-time athlete. You can’t be both. After years of coaching sports from football, basketball, soccer, cheerleading, dance, gymnastics, etc. Our coaches have seen it all, but one thing we all agree on is you can’t be a part-time athlete and expect to perform like a fully committed athlete. It’s not an insult, it’s just the truth.

A fully committed athlete is that athlete who is first to practice, last to leave. That athlete that goes home and does their drills (for whatever sport it is) at least 5 days a week. The fully committed athlete is always looking for ways to grow and improve in their sport. That can mean going outside and pushing their mile time. Maybe they watch video’s of the top athlete in their field and work hard to reach that elite level. A fully committed athlete is the one who is practicing without being told, stretching without anyone watching. The person who wants to improve every week and will push themselves to achieve those goals no matter what challenges comes their way. This is what separates the Olympians from the recreational competitors – first place from last. The fully committed athlete focuses on technique, being top in competition, looking the best on the competition floor, they are looking at every aspect from sportsmanship to athleticism – they understand it’s everything – not just one element that matters on the competition floor.

A part-time athlete is the one who focuses on just a few elements, it’s like a partly committed student (it doesn’t work). Maybe they only focus on technique, maybe it’s just about being first but not putting in the daily work to be what they say they want to be. Sports are no different that school work. If your Calculus teacher goes over formals all week in class. tells you to study those formulas at home because next week you are going to have a test. But you only pay attention in class and do no homework, no studying (this is the same as not stretching or running drills your coach gives you) – what do you think the results will be for more than 90% of these kids who don’t do their homework. Typically the results are a grade of C or lower. In the sports world that translates to taking last or close to last.

It’s common sense – The student (or athlete) that studies (or drills) daily (even a little) will typically get the A. The athlete or team of athletes that trains everyday (even when not in the gym) will normally take home 1st. Those who do anything less, you should expect less. That old saying “You get what you put into it” is so very true.

If your an athlete, just ask yourself “Can I take home the top prize if my opponent works everyday to become the best athlete on the floor and I only train twice a week?”

As coaches we meet all sorts of athletes, but those who make their sport part of their daily life will find Nationals to be a proud moment – win or lose. See, an athlete that trains daily knows when they hit the competition floor they are bring the best “them” to the floor. They know when they are done that put the most amazing performance they could place on the floor. Win or lose, they will walk away with pride. It is the athlete that does NOT put 150% into practices, drills and performance that will walk away with sadness and disappointment. Even if they take 2nd place they will still be sad because they know didn’t put their best on the floor.

When gearing up for Nationals, you have to decide are you a Fully Committed Athlete or a Part-Time Athlete. Once your performance is over will you walk off the floor knowing you do the best you that you could bring.
