Sixers To Host Auditions For 2013-14 Flight Squad Monday, August 26, at PCOM

PHILADELPHIA, PA. – AUGUST 21, 2013 – The Philadelphia 76ers will host open-call auditions for the 2013-14 Sixers Flight Squad – a team of high-flying gymnasts who perform a dunk show at every Sixers home game – on Monday, August 26 at the team’s practice facility at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM), starting at 6:00 p.m.

Gymnasts, acrobats, “trickers” and break dancers are welcome to try out for a spot on the team, and must be at least 18 years of age by October 1, 2013. Basketball skills are helpful, but are not required.

In addition to performing at home games, the Sixers Flight Squad interacts with the Philadelphia community throughout the season by leading cheers in the stands, delivering birthday packs to fans, and attending school and charitable events. The group is also an integral part of the Sixers Summer Hoops Tour, an annual community initiative that brings 90-minute basketball clinics to children of all ages and backgrounds throughout the region, and is led by Sixers Ambassador of Basketball World B. Free.
