• Tryouts are closed to the public, including family and friends
• Spirit Leaders trying out must be in 7th, 8th or 9th grade for the 2021-2022 school year.

Tryout Process
• $10 tryout fee, paid to the bookkeeper prior to tryouts
• Athletes will learn a dance, cheer, and triple jump combo at tryouts
• Athletes will break into groups of 3-5 and demonstrate the dance, cheer, triple jump combo, standing tumbling pass, and a running tumbling pass. Judge(s)/Coaches will be looking for well-rounded athletes with strong skill sets in tumbling, dance, and cheer technique
• The Spirit Squad Team results will be emailed out later that weekend
• Coaches will not discuss tryouts or final team placements. If you would like to see your score sheets or have questions/concerns, please set up a time to meet with NDPA Administration

APPLY FOR POET VP!
Would you like to have a positive impact at NDPA? Consider being Vice President for our 2022-2023 POET Board. The duties of VP are: "The Vice President shall be a member of the POET board, and in the absence of the President, shall perform the duties of the President. The Vice President shall be an aide to the President and perform such duties as are assigned by the President or the POET Board. After serving one (1) term as Vice President, the Vice President shall automatically assume the office of the President the following year." In regards to "duties as assigned," currently the VP has been overseeing the Book Fairs, LEO nights, Barnes & Noble Day, the elementary marquee, and participating in the POET/Admin meetings. It is also beneficial for the VP to attend the POET sponsored events (Fall Fiesta/Fun Run, FUNdraising Fiesta Auction, Field Day, etc.)

From Jennie Burbidge, current POET President: "I have loved working with POET and I can confidently say that the person who is VP will have a great opportunity working with the President and Board this upcoming year. It has been a great way to get involved in the school and know how we can make positive changes and contributions for our teachers and kids! POET truly is a great force for good at NDPA and it has been a pleasure to work with the dedicated individuals of the POET Board! Please let me know if you are interested by replying to jennieburb.ndpa@gmail.com "
