The Edinboro University Fighting Scots cheerleading squad will be holding open tryouts at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 11, in Crawford Gym for the upcoming football season.

You will be taught a cheer and a chant and asked to perform them, along with a series of three jumps, in front of a panel of judges. If you are able to tumble it will increase your final score, however it is not a requirement.

You will also be placed into multiple groups to show off your stunting abilities. Fliers start stretching!

The cheerleaders are excited to welcome new members to their squad and are looking forward to seeing a lot of new faces.
