The coed cheer team will host its first cheer prep clinic on Sunday, Oct. 28.

The clinic offers preparation for cheerleading. Students will receive feedback on academic and athletic progress.

The clinic gives students the opportunity to see what the cheer team does.

Anyone who comes to the clinic can participate in stunts and skills, like building pyramids, with the current team.

Future college cheer prep clinic days will be on the following Saturdays: Dec. 8, Jan. 19 and March 23.

All clinics will be held from 12 p.m.–2 p.m. in the Center for Human Performance gym.

Current ASU students are allowed to participate in the event.

Anyone interested in participating must fill out a registration form.

For the clinic, females must wear a black sports bra, black spandex, straightened hair half up-half down with a white bow and cheer shoes. Males & mascots must wear black shorts, black t-shirts and athletic shoes or cheer shoes.

The members said they recommend that students come with a positive attitude and be ready to work during try outs.

Tryouts for the Fall 2019 team begin April 6 from 3:00–7:00 p.m. and April 7 from 10:00 a.m. –3:00 p.m, and both days are mandatory.

The purpose of the coed cheer team is to support the athletic teams at Angelo State University and represent ASU at College Nationals.

"It is an honor to watch the members of the team grow as cheerleaders and students," Kaylee Feece, coach, said.

The members have to balance their social life, academics and being on the cheer team, but they said the time commitment is worth it.

"I love being a part of a team that supports our school," Cade Pence, junior, said.

Junior Delaney Dominguez said being able to get a routine down is rewarding because it shows that practice paid off.

The goal for the team this year is to win another national championship.

The team participates in events like orientation, sports games and Rambunctious Week.

The cheer team is split into the blue team and gold team to allow for more space when needed at an event.

They have practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7 a.m. – 8 a.m., Wednesdays from 6 p.m.–8 p.m. and Fridays from 6 a.m.–8 a.m.
