Get your pompoms ready, the San Diego Charger Girls are searching for new dancers to fill 28 spots on the team.
On April 4, over 400 dancers from all across the country – as well as some from overseas – are expected to audition for the squad. Judges are looking for bright, young dancers age 18 and up who can please a crowd all while keeping their legs straight and pointing their toes during the halftime performance.
This is an exciting time of the year for hopefuls since the Charger Girls are known as one of the most talented and respected cheer and dance teams in professional sports.
Hopefuls should note there is a $20 registration fee due no later than April 1. After that date, registration increases to $25. Applicants are encouraged to include a 5x7 headshot or body shot with their application.
So, what does one wear to this audition? Judges ask dancers to sport a two-piece and flesh colored tights with jazz, dance or athletic shoes.
Dancers should arrive no later than 9 a.m. for registration at University of San Diego’s Jenny Craig Pavilion. Auditions begin at 10 a.m.
Those who make it to the final round will also go through an interview process and a final dance audition during the week following this first audition.
Applications for the team can be found on the Chargers website.
