Following weeks of prep classes, and a pre-audition workshop, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host open call tryouts for the 2014-15 Buccaneers’ cheerleading squad on Sunday, April 27. This season, the Buccaneers Cheerleaders will select between 28 and 34 members for the team, which entertains fans at all Buccaneers home games and makes frequent appearances at community events and corporate functions. The cheerleaders may also have the opportunity to travel around the country, and beyond, as ambassadors of the Buccaneers.

Sunday’s open call auditions will be held at The Corral at the University of South Florida Sun Dome. Doors will open for registration at 9:00 a.m., with auditions beginning at 10:00 a.m. There is a $15 registration fee to audition, with all registration taking place on the day of auditions. Applicants must be 18 years of age and must have a high school diploma or GED by July 1, 2014.

The final 60 candidates will be announced at the conclusion of Sunday’s open call audition. Final auditions, including interviews, workshops, and rehearsals, will take place April 28 – May 1 at One Buccaneer Place. The 2014-15 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders will be announced during the Buccaneers Draft Party, on May 8 at Raymond James Stadium, when the cheerleading squad will perform for the first time.
