Team Evaluation Information

2022-2023 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.

Athletes trying out are encouraged to attend team workout sessions (March 28 through April 21) before trying out.  Contact the front desk dates for schedule and pricing information.  Athletes will sign up for a private evaluation time to demonstrate jumps, tumbling, flying ability (if applicable) and a short dance combo April 27-29, 2022.  The tryout material will be taught to the athletes during the week of April 11th and reviewed the week of April 18th in open workout groups. It will also be sent out via email on April 11th.  Our team evaluations are as relaxed as possible, and each evaluation will conclude with a short interview to go over athlete goals for the upcoming season.

Try-out Attire: T-shirt or sports bra, spanks or shorts and lightweight tennis shoes or cheer shoes with hair pulled into a ponytail with a bow. Athletes are assigned tryout numbers during evaluation. Evaluations will be held April 27-29, 2022. If you cannot make it on this day, you can tryout during the preceding week by appointment.

 

Evaluation Procedures:

 1) Schedule an evaluation time after 4/10/2022 with the front desk by calling 281-741-0531 OR request an evaluation time in your parent portal under the CAMPS/EVENTS TAB.  Parent Portal Link: https://app.iclasspro.com/parentportal/odysseycheerco

 2) Read through the 2022-2023 Cheer Contract Packet and program offerings/payment information sheets (DOWNLOAD HERE).  All-star cheerleading is a SELECT sport and requires a large time and financial commitment.  Please make sure you understand what you are committing to.

 3) Turn in the 2022-2023 All-Star Registration Form, Parent & Athlete Rules Form and the Credit Card Authorization Form found in this evaluation packet. If this paperwork is not turned in your athlete will not be able to try out.

 4) New athletes - turn in a photo and birth certificate.  Returning athletes - turn in a current photo.

 5) If you are not a current member, a $55 non-refundable registration fee per athlete will apply.

 6) Submit practice wear and practice bow payment on or before your evaluation time.  $200 plus tax for competitive teams & $100 plus tax for Prep, Show team and Novice.

 7) Learn Evaluation Dance:   Advanced Dance   Beginner Dance

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.  If 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.
