COMPETITION TRY OUT INFO AND VIDEOS!!

Bliss Competition teams have a 2-3 day commitment, summer requirements and are held to a higher standard on absences, tardies and dedication. Because of this, they improve quicker, routines are cleaner and they can be given more challenging material.

  • Returning members are required to re try out.  If for some reason you cannot attend, please send a video in.  **Its always better to be at try outs so we can see you in person with others and call you back if needed**
  • There is no charge to try out! Its FREE To attend!
  • Videos links to learn try out routines ARE POSTED BELOW
  • STUDENTS NEED TO COME PREPARED KNOWING THE TRY OUT ROUTINES.  Again, these are below.
  • Parent meeting Wednesday May 23rd, 7:00pm. Studio 2 (tumbling room) at Bliss. We will make it as brief as possible because we wont have many chairs (but lots of mats to sit on 😉 This is for anyone considering trying out but also for RETURNING PARENTS. This will be your ONLY chance to submit any August dates that dont work for you as well as hear about any changes for the upcoming season, ask questions etc.
  • Try Out Dates/time frames are below with the video links. Keep in mind we sometimes run later or finish earlier than this – all depending on how many attend and how many call back we need to do.
