2021-2022 Team Evaluation Registration Information

Come experience the excitement of Odyssey All-Star Cheer!  Our CHAMPION family and our dedicated staff are paving the road for excellence and building leadership through unity, commitment and team work.  Our mission is to train our athletes with integrity, discipline, respect and encouragement while boosting confidence and providing opportunities for lifelong friendships and memories.

At Odyssey Cheer Company we are committed to providing your athletes with the best coaching and skill building available so that they may have a healthy and successful future in cheerleading.  We value and honor all athletes equally no matter their age or skill level and foster a love of cheerleading through safe and consistent progression.

Our team evaluations are as relaxed as possible – individual athletes will sign up for a private evaluation time to demonstrate dance, jumps, tumbling, flying ability (if applicable).  Each evaluation will conclude with a short interview to go over athlete goals for the upcoming season.

Odyssey Cheer Company will always do what is best for a team to grow and have success throughout the season.  Athletes will be considered for teams based on age, level availability and level requirements.  Please note that athlete maturity, dance ability and jumping skills are also taken into consideration during team evaluations.  Skills MUST be consistent and demonstrate STRONG technique in order drive the future success of a team.  In the event that an athlete possesses exceptional strength in another area besides tumbling (ex: basing or flying), the athlete may be considered for a higher level team.  We are looking for well-rounded athletes with strong work ethic - simply having the necessary tumbling skills does not guarantee that a candidate will automatically make that level team.  The following skills may be asked to be shown at tryouts:
