TWIRLER AUDITION INFORMATION

Join us for a game-day experience through the eyes of a feature twirler. Observe 40+ years of traditions while getting answers to questions. After visiting campus and being accepted to the university, send video submissions with the required paperwork for the possibility of a live callback. In the early spring, live auditions will occur on campus where our traditions will be passed down to the next generation. Auditions only occur during years where we have a spot open for the coming season.
