2020 Tryout Information

2020 TMS Cheerleading
Virtual Tryouts

We are excited to announce that NISD will conduct Virtual Tryouts for the 2020 Middle School Cheer season!  

Tryouts will be conducted through video submission from May 4th to May 8th.  The Virtual Tryout Submission link for Tidwell  will be posted on THIS PAGE and will accept submissions from May 4th to May 8th.  Late submissions will not be considered.  A panel of two judges (not affiliated with Tidwell) will score each video submission using the NISD Score Card that was presented at the Informational Meeting.  Tryout results will be posted to this page no later than May 11th.  All other tryout procedures set forth in the NISD Cheer Guidelines still apply.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!  Until May, keep practicing and stay healthy!


The Tryout Video Submission form consists of two sections:
Part 1 - Candidates Information Candidates will need a screenshot/photo of their first SEMESTER report card to upload into the first section of the form in addition to basic information.  Report cards can be accessed in Home Access Center.  

Part 2 -Video Submission:  Candidates will upload videos of their complete tryout process.  Up to 5 videos can be added to the form in case you choose to film each part separately.  A mock tryout video has been posted below as an example.  Please review the NISD Scoring Card to familiarize yourself with the scoring process.  

Introduce yourself – name, school and grade
Demonstrate a spirited entrance or SPIRIT between Cheer, Dance, and Jumps
Demonstrate CHEER (make sure you are loud)
Demonstrate DANCE (high energy)
Demonstrate 3 JUMPS of your choice



Due to UIL suspending all summer workouts and practices indefinitely, please be advised that we will NOT have our previously-planned summer camp this year.  Instead, we will have a Tidwell home camp once all health guidelines can be followed.  This camp will be provided a reduced cost to Cheer families.  The date(s) will be set once any impact to the 2020-2021 school year has been determined. 

We ask that candidates who plan to tryout consider that the 2020 Cheer season may look vastly different than seasons past, but with our Tidwell Titan GRIT, we will make the best of it!

If you have questions regarding Cheer or Cheer tryouts, please contact Coach Westman or Coach Robbins at karley.westman@nisdtx.org or hillary.robbins@nisdtx.org
