2012 Houston Texans Cheerleader Tryouts underway

Posted by Nick Scurfield on April 14, 2012 – 9:21 pm

The 2012 Houston Texans Cheerleader Tryouts kicked off on Saturday at 6 p.m. inside the Methodist Training Center, across Kirby Drive from Reliant Stadium.

More than 950 women registered for the tryouts. The squad had 32 members in 2011 and will consist of 25-35 this year.

Everyone has to try out, including the 2011 Texans Cheerleaders. The tryouts consist of five rounds: two on Saturday, two on Sunday and the final round on Thursday, April 26, at the Houston Texans Draft Party presented by Miller Lite at Reliant Stadium.

The group of tryout hopefuls will be trimmed down to 50 finalists on Sunday.

Check out these photos from the first round.

Watch Texans Cheerleader tryouts live

Posted by Nick Scurfield on April 7, 2011 – 5:13 pm

The 2011 Texans Cheerleader Tryouts presented by Miller Lite are this Saturday from 5-11 p.m. You can watch the first three hours live on HoustonTexans.com.

From 5-6 p.m., Texans TV’s Drew Dougherty and former Texans Cheerleader Nicole (a fan favorite who won’t be trying out this year) will be on the red carpet, interviewing hopefuls as they enter the Methodist Training Center. The girls will learn their first-round routine from cheerleader services manager Alto Gary beginning at 6. They’ll start dancing at 7, which will make up the last hour of our live video stream.

We’ll also have updates throughout tryouts on Facebook and Twitter, including FlipCam video clips that we’ll upload to Facebook. I’ll be posting blog updates right here with photos and commentary, and we’ll have a full photo slideshow up by the end of the night.

It’s always a raucous atmosphere inside the Methodist Training Center on the first day of tryouts. See it for yourself on Saturday night.
