Tryout information: Being a Chipola cheerleader is a commitment for one full academic year. Each candidate is judged on technical skill (motion, stunts, tumbling) with an emphasis on crowd leadership during tryouts. All cheerleaders will be expected to participate in all fundraising activities, as well as strength and conditioning training. Chipola's cheerleading team cheers at home and away men's and women's basketball games and performs at college and community events.
