The Spurs say that spots on the team will be given to talented individuals who are 18 and older looking to perform at 35 events throughout the season. Qualifications include outstanding communication skills, punctuality and experience in athletics, such as cheerleading and dancing.

Auditions will test the skills of Hype Team hopefuls in private sessions comprised of team-building exercises and a group interview with a panel of judges. The interview will give those auditioning a chance to show off skills that will enhance the game-day experience.
