All registrants are placed/drafted on a squad/team. NO ONE is cut and we have a MUST play rule. Cheer does not tryout, they are automatically placed on a squad within their district. Only districts with more than one football team in an area require tryouts and will then hold a draft. Cheer who have brothers playing football, will follow their brother. Players do not follow Cheer.
