The Eastern Washington University athletics department will hold tryouts for Swoop at 2 p.m. on June 6 in the EWU Dance Studio, located adjacent to the Body Shop in the Sports and Recreation Center.
All full-time EWU students who are returning for the 2008-09 school year are eligible. Those interested should bring athletic appropriate dress, including tennis shoes, shorts, t-shirt, etc. Individuals will be judged on dancing ability, humorous interaction with fans, enthusiasm/energy, appropriate body type (to fit the costume) and mascot charisma.
A panel of judges will select 2-3 students to perform the role of Swoop. These individuals must be available during the fall, winter and spring quarters of the 2008-09 school year. They will be required to work games, mostly on nights and weekends, in addition to special event appearances.
A scholarship will be available for selected mascots.
The tryouts will last up to three hours.
