The San Diego Chargers have released a look at next season’s Charger Girls.
The 28-member dance squad was finalized this week after nearly 300 women made a play for a spot.
The team says dancers from across the nation auditioned last Sunday, but talent pool was whittled down to 71 finalists after the first round.
Those women then had to undergo panel interviews and a final dance routine.
Finally, after five days of auditions, the final squad was chosen Thursday night.
“I was really impressed with the deep pool of talent that auditioned for this year’s team,” Charger Girls Director Lisa Simmons said. “We had to make some tough decisions to select the final 28 girls. That strong competition has ensured we’ll have one of our finest squads ever.”
In the 2014-2015 squad, the dancers range in age from 18 to 31 with a variety of backgrounds, including 16 students, a dental assistant, project administrator, legal assistant and elementary school teacher.
Half are returning members, and the other 14 will be making their debut this season.
Twelve call San Diego home, and the most remote dancer comes from Sheffield, England.
A full list of squad members can be found on the Chargers website.
Being a Charger girl is a part-time job, but their duties stretch beyond performing at football halftime shows and along the sidelines.
They make appearances at various charity and Charger events throughout the season.
