Hey, everyone! We’ve received a lot of questions on Twitter and Facebook so I thought I would go ahead and answer your questions in a Q and A format. I will answer any questions you have for me about auditions, appearances, games or any part of the NFL cheerleader life. I hope to give you all a little more insight into the professional cheerleader world.
Q: How much of your time is dedicated to being a Colts Cheerleader? – Erica
A: We, as cheerleaders, invest quite a bit of time in order to be ready for anything the season may throw at us. We practice for 4 hours twice a week as a squad. Then, there’s working out, appearances and even extra practice time on our own. So, it’s a lot more time than most would think! But, most girls are either a full-time student or have a full-time job, so if you manage your time wisely it can be done.
Q: Is being a Sr. in HS too early to try out for the team? – Abby
A: I actually auditioned and made the team my first year when I was a senior in high school! Yes, it is definitely possible!
Q: If you could only give one piece of advice to the rookies, what would it be? – Angela
A: I would have to say confidence! It is so important for each girl to be confident in everything they do throughout the whole audition process. So, no matter what color top you wear, how you perform, or the style of your hair as long as you are confident, then that’s half the battle!
Q: What kind of top do the girls typically wear to auditions? – Danielle
A: You will want to wear a top that shows your stomach and that you are comfortable in. Many will wear swim suit tops, sports bras or dance tops. (see Natalie’s Notes #2)
Q: I am only 5 feet tall. Would that hurt my chances of making the team? – Amber
A: Absolutely not! we have a full range of height on our squad. There is no height requirement or maximum for our team. So, it doesn’t matter if you are 4’10” or 6’2″, just rock it!
I hope these answers help you girls out! And remember, submit ANY questions to our Facebook or Twitter page and don’t forget to use hash tags #NataliesNotes and #ColtsCheer2013!
