tryout information 2021-2022

Under the circumstances of our new and temporary lifestyles, we have revised our traditional tryout process to recruit the new team. We want to be ready to go back to normal in the fall, with welcoming the class of 2025, cheering on our football team, and providing the quality entertainment this team is known for! Please know that help will be available for you every step of tryout process.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Coach Laura Akin.

Here is the application.

what is song pom?

Song Pom is a mixture of using Song Pom technique, Jazz and Hip Hop with Pom Pons to entertain our audiences throughout the majority of our routines.  (Yes, they really are called Pom Pons!)  :D  

Though we are often called "Dance Team", we truly are a Song Pom team in our performance style.

We hope you enjoy our performances as much as we enjoy performing them for you!

we are self-funded!

We are a year round program and do not receive any funding from the Santa Clara Unified School District or Wilcox HS besides paying a stipend for our coach in the Fall and in the Spring.  We rely completely on donations of funds from families and the companies that allow us to hold fundraisers at their restaurants so we can go to training camp each summer, pay for uniform components like poms, warm-ups, etc. 

If you are interested in making a donation to the song pom team, please make checks payable to Wilcox HS and write Dance Team in the memo section.  Please also let the coach Laura Akin ( know if you are doing this so she can make sure the funds made it to the correct account.

Thank you so much for your support!
