Important Announcements ...

PRACTICE ATTENDANCE POLICY
  • If you anticipate missing any practices, whether on a regular basis due to other activities, or due to family vacations or illnesses, etc. please email me prior to your missing practice, so the coaches can plan accordingly.
  • As a reminder, if a cheerleader misses practice regularly due to another activity, i.e. they miss one practice a week due to confirmation classes or another sport practice, they will not be placed into a stunt group for competitions.  They will still learn and pass stunt progressions with their team, and will have a vital role to play in the competition routine.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it."  ~ Michael Jordan
