Charlie Cardinal Tryout Meeting Tuesday Night

Charlie Cardinal Tryouts

We will begin with an informational meeting in WR 203, Worthen Arena Media Room, on Tuesday, September 13th at 7PM.  Official tryouts will be held on Wednesday, September 14th from 7-10PM.

Charlie Cardinal is an important facet in rounding out the entertainment portion of Ball State athletic events.  We are looking for individuals interested in becoming a member of the mascot group.

Charlie Cardinal is a versatile entertainer with a playful attitude and crowd pleasing abilities.  You must be able to fill the body of the suit for long periods of time with a certain style and grace while still entertaining.  One's show qualities must be strong with the ability to reach many fans.  Charlie Cardinal is a bright, outgoing, pleasant, enthusiastic and well-rounded individual.  You must be able to be a part of a disciplined unit to cover football, men's and women's basketball, women's volleyball home games and other special events on campus.

You must be a full time Ball State University student with a G.P.A. of at least 2.0 or a high school equivalent of 2.0 if just starting first year at Ball State.

You must be physically fit and well-groomed.

We are looking to select 2 to 3 people.  The exact number chosen is the final decision of the judges.  You are required to have material prepared for the audition.  The skills that are to be performed at auditions include, but are not limited to, entertaining, jogging, and learning the Charlie Cardinal Strut while in suit.  The routines should be a minute long.  You must be in attendance for the informational meeting on Tuesday night in order to tryout on Wednesday.
