Our International Open All-Girl Level 6 Elite team has enjoyed great success over the last five seasons, with regular top three finishes at European championships and three appearances at Worlds including 6th and 4th place finishes. The Ladies of F-35 lightning will focus on European competition this season by competing at the European Open and the ICU European championships.

Aviator Aces
Our International Co-ed Level 5 Elite team have had another amazing season, hitting difficult routines throughout the year. They will be competing at the International All Star Federation (IASF) Cheerleading Worlds in Florida in April 2015. The team will consist of Elite athletes from both the AV Program and around the country.

F-4 Phantoms
The F-4 Phantoms are our newest team. Last year was their inaugural year and competed at Cheersport in Atlanta at level 4.2. This year the team will be going to Indianapolis for the Majors and be competing at Jamfest Super-nationals, one of the biggest competitions in the world and training with either GymTyme, Ultimate Athletics or Ice Lady Lightning (tbc). The teams’ level will be set based on the skills of the team. Phantoms is a great opportunity for athletes from levels 2 through to 5 and 6.

What to bring:
Please bring your tryout documents (see above) to registration on the day of tryouts. There are no local shops to go out for food during the day so bring a packed lunch and plenty of water. The building gets very warm when the sun is out so please bring a towel/sweat bands if required. Like wise it gets cool if the weather is cold outside so bring jumpers/jog bottoms. Make sure you bring any ankle/wrist supports/strapping or heat/freeze gel, etc. that you will need as we do not provide these.

I can't make the Live Tryout, can I still tryout?
You can submit a video try-out, however this should be used only as a last resort. At the live try-out the coaches will be able to work with you, help you with your skills, and will learn a lot more positive things about you and your attitude which will make them more confident to put you on a team. We are always aim to make live try-outs as fun and a learning experience so there is every reason to attend.

Video Submission Guidelines:
The deadline for video submissions is 4pm on Sunday 27th July. Make sure that it is clear which person is trying out on the video. At the beginning of your video, introduce yourself and indicate which position you are trying out for. Please contact info@aviatorallstars.com for detailed information/requirements so you can arrange your video accordingly. Submit your video by email along with your tryout documents and we will forward you our account details to transfer the tryout fee (£10). Please note, you will not be considered for the team until this has been received.

All athletes will be notified of their try-out results via email or phone on or before Thursday the 31st of July..

Please do not be intimidated:
We will be looking for potential and how well you progress and learn at the tryout. We will also be taking the 24-35 athletes who we think will fit best into the team family and contribute to becoming the best 'team' at competitions throughout our 2014-15 season.

Skills requirements
All sequences required at tryouts will be taught at the start of tryouts and at the Aviators Open Gym on Sunday 13th July 2014, at the Elite Skills Camp on the 26th July 2014. The dance and jump sequence is above and available on our YouTube channel.

We are looking for cheerleaders who are prepared to work at all disciplines of cheerleading (including dance, motions, jumps, tumbling, and stunting), but are also looking for people who excel at certain skills such as tumbling and stunting.

Everyone who tries out will be required to perform the dance and jump sequence.
