TJC Apache Cheer Helps in the Community


***Tryouts are this weekend!!!! We cannot wait to see everyone and we are ready for this summer!!!***

Friday night : Will be held in Wagstaff Gymnasium from 6:00-9:00pm for open practice

Saturday night : Will be held in Wagstaff Gymnasium from 9:00 am - about 4:00 pm

We will have our interview session after the skills portion of tryouts

After the interviews we will select next years team and have a team meeting. (Please be patient and prepared to stay all day on Saturday if you are selected)

***Team meeting is mandatory if you are present for tryouts only, video tryout athletes will meet with us at our first engagement!***

Recruit weekends are for high school students and graduates who are interested in cheering in college and would like to attend TJC. This is a great way to meet the current team and coaching staff and practice with us in a more relaxed setting before coming in to a tryout. The official clinics will be held on Saturdays but there is an opportunity for those that would like to come and join an open gym with the team the Friday night before. For details on the open gym times and locations please contact the coaching staff at 903.510.3183.

Due to increased AACCA (American Association of Cheerleading Coaches and Administrators) safety, we will not be able to teach new tumbling skills. Apache Cheer and the coaching staff are there to assist and improve skills that you may already have or are currently working on.


When you come to visit campus or come to a Recruit Weekend and need to stay the night, check out the Holiday Inn.  We have negotiated special rates for Recruits and their families.

Book your room for Recruit Weekend for our February clinic or for our April clinic.
