MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. — The Bobcat Competition Cheer Team will be hosting tryouts for the 2017-18 season on Saturday, May 13 in the Centennial Center. Tryouts will begin at 10 a.m. but athletes are encouraged to arrive early to provide ample time for the check-in process.
Athletes interested in trying out for the team will be required to have a cleared physical from the past six months as well as proof of acceptance to Georgia College upon arrival. Prospects will be judged on several different categories including stunts, tumbling and pyramids.
