STUNT FAQ

A1. STUNT IS AN ALLGIRL SPORT PLAYED IN 4 QUARTERS. IT INVOLVES STUNTING, BASKETS, PYRAMIDS, JUMPS AND TUMBLING WITH NO CROWD LEADING.

A2. YES! STUNT ATHLETES ARE ALSO ABLE TO CHEER BOTH FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL SEASONS. 

 

Q3. CAN I RECEIVE A SCHOLARSHIP? 

A3. YES! STUNT WILL BE CONSIDERED A VARSITY SPORT ON TIFFIN UNIVERSITY'S CAMPUS AND ATHLETIC SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AWARDED TO TEAM MEMBERS. 

 

Q4. HOW DO I TRYOUT?

Q4. COACH TYSON IS CURRENTLY ACCEPTING VIDEO TRYOUTS WHICH SHOULD INCLUDE ANY EXPERIENCE YOU HAVE WITH STUNTING, TUMBLING, AND JUMPS! SEND VIA DM OR EMAIL STUNT@TIFFIN.EDU

 

Q5. WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS?

A5. WE ARE LOOKING FOR A MINIMUM OF A BACKHAND SPRING, JUMP FLEXIBILITY AND HEIGHT, AND STUNTING EXPERIENCE PREFERRED. IF YOU ARE UNSURE ABOUT YOUR SKILLS JUST ASK!

 

Q6. WHAT SHOULD MY VIDEO TRYOUT INCLUDE?

A6. VIDEOS SHOULD HIGHLIGHT YOUR MOST ELITE TUMBLING, JUMPS, AND STUNTS ON A DEAD MAT. WE LOOK FOR ATHLETES THAT ARE COACHABLE AND WANT TO INCREASE THEIR SKILL LEVEL AND PERFECT THEIR TECHNIQUE. IT IS ALSO GOOD TO SHOW SKILLS THAT YOU ARE WORKING ON, STILL NEED TO BE SPOTTED ON, OR ARE NOT READY FOR A DEAD MAT. THIS GIVES COACH TYSON AN IDEA OF WHAT YOU ARE CURRENTLY DOING AND WHAT POSITION ON THE TEAM WILL BE RIGHT FOR YOU.
