AuditionsPage_PencilHeaders_WhatToExpect

What to Expect If You Make The Team

  • PRACTICES: Weekly practices are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays (6:30 – 9:30 pm) and Sundays (5:30 – 9:30 PM). Practices will end when the football season ends. There may be other scheduled practices or events to prepare for. Special events or projects may fall during the offseason. Advance notice of practice times will be provided.
  • GAMES: Most games are scheduled at noon on Sundays. There may be games scheduled on a Sunday or on Monday, Thursday or Saturday night. There will be a minimum of 10 home games. In general, MVC do not perform at away games.
  • PART-TIME: As a reminder, this is a part-time position and team members are paid for all their work. This includes rehearsals, game day, appearances, photoshoots, meetings, etc.
  • APPEARANCES: Appearances are a great way for the MVC to connect with our communities' charitable organizations and local businesses. Each MVC is expected to do appearances. We will work with you to find appearances that work with your schedule. We will follow applicable guidance for COVID-19 safety protocols when scheduling appearances.
  • PERSONAL WORKOUTS, TECHNIQUE, STUDY and REVIEW TIME: To be a successful MVC you should maintain your own personal workouts and allocate time to prepare (practice technique, review routines, etc.) for performances.
  • MVC PERKS: MVC perks will vary year-to-year, but typically include hair salon visits, tanning salon visits, health club membership, medical spa visits, practice attire, social events, travel, photo shoots, etc.
  • ADDITIONAL EVENTS: (not guaranteed for all MVC) can include the following: Team video and photoshoots, MVC youth programs, military base visits and tours (some may be overseas), regular appearances on TV and game day broadcasts and community appearances
  • ATTENDANCE: Attendance is very important. If you are selected as an MVC, then your team is counting on you to be present for practices, appearances and performances.
