Cheerleading at Bakersfield College plays a major role in athletics and spirit at Bakersfield College, so strap on your tennis shoes and grab the nearest set of pompons, because tryouts for the 2013-2014 Bakersfield College Cheer Team are May 4 from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Tryouts are open to graduating high school seniors and Bakersfield College students. Cheer or dance experience is helpful, but not required. Bring with you your most recent transcript, a prepared sideline cheer, and 6 eight-counts of a dance routine choreographed to your own music. You will be taught one pom routine. Cheer packets will be available onsite to read and sign. Please dress accordingly – shorts, t-shirts, tennis shoes. Red, white and black colors, with no advertising.
