Tryout Information

Attention Twirlers! Are you interested in twirling while continuing your education? Join the University of Arizona Twirling Team and be part of an award winning marching band. Our program is the finest and most respected in the country. The twirling team is always featured and the band showcases our team. The twirling team performs at all of the football games and is a major attraction at all of the basketball games (men's and women's) where you can show off your talent. We are often contenders for bowl games and travel with the team to various locations. For those twirlers who like the heat, and love to twirl outside year round, this is your opportunity! Course credit is given to all twirlers for fall and spring semesters and twirling scholarships are available.

If you are interested in becoming a Wildcat twirler, please submit a sample of your twirling (in costume) via DVD, along with a photo and letter of interest.

Tryouts will be held April 8th, 2017 at the University of Arizona. Tryouts will consist of 4 pep routines; a 2 and 3 baton series and a solo 2-minute routine. Please incorporate personal style as well as required technical skills (one-spin illusion, 3 spins vertical and horizontal, 2 & 3 baton combinations, and a roll section). We may also teach you a new routine that morning. All tryout videos are password protected on YouTube.

If you are a high school junior, start planning now! If you are a senior, please mail your DVD, photo and letter of interest to:
