Don't Let That Get You Down!
Here's the truth. There are hundreds of athletes in the same situation as you. They didn't make their high school cheer or dance team. Now we know that doesn't make you feel that much better but you have to understand that there are many factors judges consider when putting together a team. Some of which you have no control over and may very well mean no matter what you did at tryouts, the chances of making the team were slim for you.
The important thing to do right now is not be upset. You did your best and for whatever reason it just wasn't the team for you this year. But your aspirations to be a cheerleader does not have to end at tryouts. Here in the San Jose Fremont Bay Area, and like most cities across the US, open their Allstars programs to athletes just like you.
Allstars dance and cheerleading programs are a great way to still follow your dream of being a cheerleader and dancer in high school. Typically athletes who did not make their school teams then join an Allstars team nearly always make the school team at their next tryouts.
The benefits of allstars is amazing. It is a great way to make new friends, be a part of a competitive cheerleading or dance team, improve your athletic skills all while having a great time.
Remember, no matter how good or bad you think you did at tryouts, you can't stress over why you didn't make the team. Now is the time to move forward towards your goal of dancing or cheerleading and join a local Bay Area All Stars program (or one in your local area).
