Cheerleading at Lincoln High School is a great organization to belong to on campus and one that all students can be a part of if they meet eligibility requirements. Tryouts for the team are held in the spring, prior to the new school year. All cheerleaders must have a current sports packet on file with LHS.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I'm a new student at Lincoln, and missed tryouts in the Spring. Can I tryout in the Fall?
No, you must tryout during the formal application/tryout process in the Spring. Details regarding tryouts will be posted in the spring.
I have no cheer experience. Can I still tryout?
Yes, you can still tryout if you have no cheer experience. There have been members of the team who never cheered, prior to earning a spot on the LHS Cheer Squad. When you try out, you will be judged according to what you can do, in comparison to other potential candidates, and a spot will be offered to you if the points awarded justify it.
I do not have a 2.0 grade average. Can I still tryout?
No, all cheerleaders must maintain a 2.0 GPA at the time of tryout. No exceptions will be made to this rule.
Do I have to be present at tryouts? I may not be there the week they are planned -- can I send a video?
No. Attendance is mandatory for all required days of tryouts.
Is tumbling a requirement?
No. Tumbling is always a great skill to have when on the team, but not required to cheer at LHS at this time.
ATHLETE PARTICIPATION FORMS
Student Athlete Participation Forms
We are very excited to announce that the Lincoln High School’s Athletic Department has partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service. FinalForms allows you to complete and sign athletic participation forms for your students. The most exciting news is that FinalForms saves data from season-to-season and year-to-year, meaning that you will never need to enter the same information twice! FinalForms also pre-populates information wherever possible, for each of your students, saving you time.
You may review your data at any time to verify it is current. You will be required to sign your forms once per year and after any update.
Click on the Parent Playbook (click here: https://bit.ly/FFParentPlaybook) to get started in FinalForms. If you require any support during the process, scroll to the page bottom and click “Use Support”.
We are asking that ALL parents of athletes use FinalForms.
