Tryouts for the 2014-2015 school year are from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, August 2, at the Cougar Gym.
Coach Emilee Benge anticipates an exciting year for the cheerleaders, especially with the debut of the new women's basketball team.
"I am expecting great things from this year," she said. "We have had a huge amount of interest from girls and guys all over the region who want to come be part of our squad. With this new interest, it is pushing the current cheerleaders to work harder and improve their own skills. I think the fans at the basketball games this year will be pleased with the level of talent they see."
The squad is open to all full-time IU Kokomo students. Those trying out should come with a cheer and chant to demonstrate, and should be prepared to stunt, and showcase jumps and tumbling.
