Got What It Takes? Pistons Look For Cheerleaders

Local businesses may be feeling the heat from the lack of NBA games, and talks are heading in an ugly direction.

But wait, there’s a bright spot on the NBA horizon. How do you spell it? C-H-E-E-R.

The Detroit Pistons are holding auditions for a new cheer team to perform during home games at The Palace of Auburn Hills. So cross your fingers that there are home games — soon — at the Palace.

Auditions begin at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, October 23, at theCheerleader Training Center, 14922 Technology Drive,ShelbyTownship, MI, 48315.

Cheer Team members are required to perform during every Pistons home game and represent the organization throughout the year at various team and charity functions. A flexible schedule is a must for selected team members.

 To audition, male and female candidates must be 18 or older and are required to show proof of identification.  Aspiring cheerleaders should be elite stunters that are stage ready, physically fit and have a strong work ethic.  Co-ed nationals experience is a plus. Participants are encouraged to wear athletic apparel to the auditions and be ready to perform.
