Below are the requirements and skills we look for as members of the BYU Dunk Team. It is important to note that all skills listed aren't required. As a team, we take athleticism and turn it into things that we do as a dunk team.

*Not all skills are required, but the more you can do, the more you will stand out! Many of the skills listed aren't used for dunking; however, we incorporate them into our shows to add more excitement. One skill that most athletes don't have exposure to is jumping off of mini trampolines. Athleticism plays a large role in learning this.
