Each year there is an audition that is held in the spring for the USF Sundolls. 18-24 young women are selected for the upcoming years squad. The selected members are expected to perform at all football games and basketball games throughout the year along with participation in many other opportunities around campus and Tampa Bay. It is suggested that squad members take a light load in the Fall. Commitment is expected through the entire season, which ends in April. This includes no break for Thanksgiving or Spring Break and only have a short Christmas break. If you have any issues with this, please do not tryout.
For girls that may need a year of training or do not have the time commitment necessary for the field team, we have the option to participate in the appearance team. You must come to tryouts! We will have initial interviews Friday night and final interviews on Sunday. You must be asked to come to the final interview on Sunday. The majority of commitment is in the fall with a minimal amount in the Spring.
All team members are required to attend practice during the week. The team is also required to attend weekly workouts with the Athletic Department two days a week. Practices will begin one week before school starts in August. Practices will be on Sunday, Monday Wednesday. (6-9) Once football routines are learned and basketball is organized, Sundays will be deleted from the practice schedule. Because of the conflict with games and appearances, you are not allowed to take night classes.
