The Cheerleading squad for the American football team Vikings Vienna are holding try outs in April as they search for new recruits.
Taking place 4 April in the Vikings centre in Simmering, the cheerleaders are inviting any enthusiastic and talented dancers to come along and impress the cheer team.
The only requirements are that contenders are over 6-years-old and bring their own sports trainers and suitable sports clothes for the weather - and can show they are full of 'team spirit'.
The Viking football team is one of Europe's biggest and more successful American football teams in Europe, coming out near the top every year in the European Association. This year the team is also taking part in a new European competition, the BIG6 European Football League, which will consist of three teams from Germany, two from Austria and one from Switzerland.
With the 2014 season about to kick off, there will be plenty of opportunities for the cheerleaders to strut their stuff, making it the perfect time for hopeful dancers to try out for the team.
The tryouts are taking place at 17:00 at the centre on Ravelinstrasse 8, Simmering. More information can be found on www.raiffeisenvikings.com.
