Subject: Intrested in Becoming a Cheerleader
hi how are you my name is xxxxxxxx and I'm interested in becoming a (name of school) cheerleader. Funny thing is I've never cheered nor am i flexible. however i think i am a fast learner. i was wonder if in order to try-out would have to know how to do stunts or do you guys train and coach us on how to do so? please get back to me...thank you and have a nice day.

Hi - Thank you for your interest; however at the collegiate level, you would need to be able to tumble, stunt, jump, dance and cheer. These girls usually have at least 5-10 years of experience. I do not want to discourage you, but because you asked, I will tell you that experience is a requirement. Thank you and I wish you all the best! Please come to the (My school's name inserted here) games and be a Sharks fan (the finatics)!!!

I understand what you are say but I'm not sure if I know how to stumble because I've never done it before. I know how to dance and cheer but for the stumbling and stunts I've never do but I'm willing to learn.
