THE SEARCH IS ON TO SELECT THE CPL CHEERLEADING TEAM: CPL seeking talent to add extra spice to the Biggest Party in Sport
The Limacol Caribbean Premier League has issued a rallying cry to budding cheerleaders across the region to form a twelve-strong Cheerleading Team for this year’s tournament in five of the franchise countries – Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica and St. Lucia.
The Biggest Party in Sport is not only represented through the world-class cricketers that participate in the game, but also in the beautiful Caribbean cheerleaders that entertain the millions of fans.
Cheerleaders will be selected locally from five of the host islands, where a specialist selection panel will be looking out for characteristics such as style, confidence and a warm, positive personality. Applicants will need to submit a set of photos and videos, demonstrating their good looks, flair, dancing ability and desire to earn a prestigious place on the CPL Cheerleading Team.
A three person judging panel, including a beauty specialist, choreographer and CPL representative, will select a shortlist of twenty girls to participate in a three day bootcamp with the FANA talent agency. During the three days, those taking part will develop their camaraderie, whilst learning skills key to cheerleading, such as dance routines, hair and make up, attitude, presentation and fitness training.
Following the bootcamp, twelve girls will be selected to form this year’s CPL Cheerleading Team. They will demonstrate the flair and energy of the tournament, and be responsible for bringing the Biggest Party in Sport to life beyond the boundary ropes.
James Wynne, Head of Marketing for CPL, comments; “The CPL is about so much more than just cricket – it delivers a complete Caribbean entertainment package to excited fans across the globe. As such, we are on a star search across the Caribbean for the right girls to be the faces of CPL.”
The tournament returns in July and August 2014 when Jamaica Tallawahs will defend their title against the Antigua Hawksbills, Barbados Tridents, Guyana Amazon Warriors St. Lucia Zouks, Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel.
