Mark your calendar: Ravens cheerleader tryouts
Once again, the Ravens have scheduled their annual cheerleader tryouts while I'm out of town, which I'm starting to think is not an accident. I'm guessing they're afraid I'll upstage everybody with my amazing agility and pep.
Meanwhile, they don't even make Nestor try out anymore.
Here's the Ravens news release with the details:
Baltimore Ravens Cheerleader Tryouts This Weekend
The Baltimore Ravens will host auditions for their 2011 cheerleading squad on Saturday, March 5 and Sunday, March 6 at the Downtown Athletic Club. Saturday registration will be held between 9:30-10:45 a.m., and material will be taught from 10:45 a.m.–12:00 p.m. Tryouts will begin at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday and run from 11:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
“Entering our 14th cheerleading season, we are excited,” said Ravens director of cheerleading Tina Galdieri. “Cheerleading tryouts are not only a time when new people can step up and join our team, but veterans are also expected to improve their skills to remain on the team. As a coach, it is always inspirational to see people work hard in order to achieve their goals. We look forward to seeing even more talented athletes this year who will strive to become a part of the Ravens’ organization.”
Approximately 150-200 male and female hopefuls will participate in open tryouts with 60 making the final squad. All participants, as well as coach Galdieri (prior to 10:45 a.m.), will be available for interviews on Saturday and prior to 11:30 a.m. on Sunday.
Additionally, tryouts for the Playmakers squad will be held on Sunday, March 6 at the Downtown Athletic Club.
