Applications for the 2011-12 Arkansas Tech Spirit Squads are due by 5 p.m. today to the Spirit Squad Office in Young or the Office of Student Services in Doc Bryan.

A 500 word essay explaining the students’ interest in being a cheerleader or Golden Girl is required. Tryouts will be held Saturday, April 2.

Those wishing to audition for the Arkansas Tech Spirit Squads must attend clinics prior to tryouts.  The cheer and dance clinics will take place from 5-9 p.m. on Thursday, March 31, and on Friday, April 1, at Tucker Coliseum.  During the clinics, participants will learn the required tryout material.

Those trying out for either squad will be required to pay a $15 clinic fee, and students must be considered full-time students with a cumulative 2.0 GPA.  Entering freshmen must meet entrance requirements of the university.
