You may be able to do more than the basic requirements for the tryout but are restricted by your time commitments. You will be required to go to at least three of the chosen competitions for the 2010-11 seasons. This will allow you to be more flexible in your schedule and you will be able to work with a choreographer with more time options. You do not need to try out for Water; however, you must contact the director with your decisions to allow for time frames and choreography commitments. Water members may choose their choreographers and music as long as they have been approved by the director.
