How do I get an application?
The best way to apply is to complete the application below and submit it. You may also print out the application from this website and mail it to the San Jose SaberCats office at 600 East Brokaw Rd, San Jose, CA, 95112. If you are unable to print the application or submit it online, please contact the San Jose SaberCats office at (408) 673-3400 and we will mail you one.
What kind of photograph should I submit?
Although a professional photo is not required, it is recommended. Photos are used for identification purposes so please make sure your hair color and length are the same as the photo. The photo should be one that you feel makes you look your best. Headshots, half body or full body shots are acceptable (preferably 8×10). You may only submit one photo. Photos WILL NOT be returned under any circumstance. Please bring the photo with you the day of the audition. DO NOT mail it in ahead of time.
Can I register on the day of the audition?
Yes. Applications will be available the day of the audition at the registration area and walk-ups will be accepted at the door. Although you may register the day of the audition, we recommend you submit an application ahead of time.
How should I wear my hair and make-up for the audition?
Hair does not need to be a certain length, color or style. At games and appearances, the SaberKittens wear their hair either completely down or half up/half down. Please choose a style that looks best on you. Make-up should be worn a little heavier than your everyday make-up. Please wear colors that complement your skin colors and the audition outfit you are wearing.
What attire is required for the audition?
A two-piece leotard and flesh colored tights/nylons ARE MANDATORY. This outfit should complement you both in color and in style. Biker shorts, hot pants, skirts, capri pants and stretch pants are NOT ACCEPTABLE. Jazz shoes or athletic shoes (non-marking soles) are also MANDATORY. You may NOT dance barefoot. You may want to bring a couple of pairs of shoes to try out since you will be dancing on a gym floor.
Are there any special requirements to audition?
You must be at least 18 years of age by January 17, 2015 and must be a high school graduate. There is no maximum age limit.
There are no height or weight requirements.
All team members must have flexible schedules for rehearsals, games and promotional appearances throughout the season.
We are looking for bright, friendly, attractive women to perform at all San Jose SaberCats home games.
What time commitment is required as a member of the SaberKittens?
Being a member of the SaberKittens is not a full time job but does require 100% commitment. Most squad members work, attend college or both. The SaberKittens practice one or two nights during the week and on weekends. All home games are MANDATORY and the 2015 schedule can be found on the home page of the SaberCats website.
What can I expect the day of the audition?
Upon arrival, you should proceed to the registration table to check in. If you have not filled out an application you might want to get there early so you have time to fill it out completely. You will also be required to submit your photo at this time. Once everyone has checked in, you will go through a short group warm up. We recommend that you start stretching upon arrival. Then a choreographer will teach a short dance combination for each phase of the audition. You will be required to learn and perform these dance combinations in small groups in front of a panel of judges. A cut will be made after each phase. At the end of the preliminary audition, a group of finalists will be selected to continue onto finals the next day. Throughout the day you will be judged on your dance/cheer ability, showmanship and crowd appeal. If you are selected as a finalist, you will then receive instructions as to what will be required of you at the final audition on Sunday, January 18th.
What should I bring with me to the preliminary audition?
Extra flesh colored tights/nylons
Lunch/Dinner and snacks for breaks
