Jills tryouts coming up in a few short weeks with a contest!

This is an exciting time of year in NFL Cheerleading circles with tryouts getting into full swing. A few squads have already started while most, including the Buffalo Jills, are coming up in the next month or so. 

All audition dates, with the exception of March 20th, are closed to the public

First up is a voluntary prep class at Gold's Gym in Williamsville from 3-5pm on March 6th. The prep class will afford prospective Jills an advance opportunity to learn the NFL cheerleader look, what to wear, expectations at auditions, dance style and more! Learn directly from Jills management and team captains! Get more details on registration and prices at

After that, the real fun begins with the mandatory Open Workshop at the Conference Center of Niagara Falls on March 14th starting at 10am. It's advised you show up early for check-in and bring along a healthy snack. Ending time will be determined by the number of attendees but expect to be finished between 1-2pm based on past years' workshops. In this workshop, dancers will learn the new routine that you will be expected to perform on March 20th and dancers and ambassadors alike will get a chance to learn about the requirements and expectations of being a Jill along with the benefits that the squad provides through its sponsors. There will be a short question-and-answer period as well so if you have questions, that will be the time to ask them.

March 18th will be another voluntary workshop from 8-10pm at Gold's Gym in Williamsville. This is a great opportunity to rehearse with the Jills Captains and learn helpful interview, attire and makeup techniques.

1st cuts, the only audition date open to the public, will take place Saturday, March 20th at 10am at the Conference Center of Niagara Falls.  There is a $5 admission fee for the general public to attend and the $45 registration fee is due at this date before you'll be allowed to audition. For the public, we ask that you be respectful as the young ladies are up on stage and while dancers are performing, no flash photography.
