HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- The Southern Misses Dance team is excited to announce the dates for their tryouts for the upcoming 2016-17 school year! The students that are selected as members of the Southern Misses will carry on the great tradition of performing at Southern Miss Basketball games and various other functions representing Southern Miss Athletics.
The Southern Misses will hold tryouts on Saturday, August 6 from 2-6 p.m. and on Sunday, August 7 from 2-6 p.m. in the Payne Center located on campus. Registration will begin at 1 p.m. on Saturday, August 6 at the entrance of the Payne Center. Those participating in tryouts will also take part in an interview portion taking place on Sunday, August 7. Applicants will have the opportunity to sign up for interview times as part of the tryout on Saturday, August 6.
Please note that all applicants are required to complete and return the Tryout Waiver (attached to this article), proof of a completed physical done by a physician within the last year, copy of all medical insurance cards, and a copy of sickle cell blood work results. A copy of all guidelines for what to bring to tryouts is also attached to this article as a PDF. If you have not had a physical or sickle cell blood work, please plan ahead as these items will take time to complete and applicants may potentially need a parent or guardian to sign-off on the Tryout Waiver.
Additionally, applicants should bring their tryout application, application fee, water bottle and towels and should wear black dance pants, a black leotard with no logos and dance shoes to both days of the tryouts. Applicants are encouraged to turn in all forms prior to the clinic and/or tryouts but may bring these forms with them on the day of the events. Please note that all forms must be turned in by the beginning of the tryouts in order to take part in the tryouts.
