    Hello, Canes!! 

    If you (or your child) are interested in trying out for PHU Football Cheer for the upcoming 20-21 season, please read the information.
    Paperwork MUST be turned into the front office at PHU by July 17th and approved before anyone can tryout. More information and links to the paperwork will be below. PLEASE do not forget to watch the 3 videos and print out the certifications. 
    Tryout Dates:
    August 3-5, & 7th - 3:30 - 6pm
    No tryouts will be on August 6th. Take this day to practice at home. 
    Final Tryout in front of the judges will be on the 7th.
    Palm Harbor University High - the field next to the tennis courts(behind the Gym). 

    Items to bring each day:
    Water jug (not a small bottle please; I will not be able to fill it up and you are not able to share another person's water)
    Shorts; not spandex
    Shirt must be long enough to tuck into your shorts
    Cheer shoes
    Bow in hair

    The Participation Form is similar to what we have to turn in every year. Please remember that EACH year, new participation forms are due. Your physical may be good, depending on the date. If it will expire during the football season, you will have to get a new physical. You do not have to have someone notarize the packet anymore.

    2) Complete all parts of the packet. 
    4) Watch the 3 videos on Concussion, Heat Illness, and Sudden Cardiac Arrest:

    Everyone needs to submit the COVID Risk Waiver with their paperwork.
    Please refer to the PCSB Athletics page for more information. Athletics and Extracurricular Activities / Pinellas County Athletics
    Due to the current pandemic, this may change. We are currently only in Phase 1 of getting back into Sports. 
    As always, please reach out to me with any questions. The best email to use is this one for cheerleading questions, as I do not check my work email as often over the Summer.  
    If you know of anyone who is interested in trying out for PHU Cheer but I do not have them on this email list, please forward them the information. Also, if a former PHU cheerleader is missing from this list, please forward them this email. I did my best to find everyone's emails. 

    I look forward to a great tryout and an exciting Cheer Season!
