SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The new class of Charger cheer leading hopefuls are already gearing up for the new season. 

Open auditions for the 2016 squad begin Saturday April 2. Dozens came out for a pre-audition workshop on Sunday at the Jenny Craig Pavilion on the USD campus. 

It was a perfect opportunity for newcomers to learn what it means to be a Chargers girl. 

Another pre-audition workshop is being held next Saturday at the Jenny Craig Pavilion from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
