The University of Kentucky Cheerleading program has organized a clinic to help you prepare for true coed stunting and also get you ready for college cheerleading tryouts. This clinic has been developed to help individuals who plan to make the transition from high school to college cheerleading. At this clinic, you will get help with coed stunt techniques, tumbling, baskets, and interview skills.

You will benefit greatly from this clinic if you are interested in trying out as a college cheerleader anywhere across the nation and especially at UK. The techniques and skills that we will help you develop will give you a big head start over your competitors.

At this clinic, you can expect training by former and current members of the Twenty-Time National Champion University of Kentucky Cheerleaders. The clinic is conducted in a low-pressure, safe, and fun environment on the University of Kentucky’s campus.

Jomo K. Thompson, head coach of the 20-time National Champion squad, along with T. Lynn Williamson, the architect of the cheer program, who has advised and developed the UK Cheer program for the past 38 years, will help with advice and answer any questions or concerns that you might have about the tryout procedure.
