    • A handout will be distributed at practice tomorrow with the BCHS map and parade route.
    • I am aware of the following absences on July 4th:  Ainsley R, Ainsley T, Allie K, Breanne, Brooke, Elizabeth,  Jenna and Natalie.  I am expecting all other athletes to be in attendance at the parade.  Please email me ASAP if this isn't correct.
    • The parade route is just 1.5 miles long, and we are in need of 2 - 3 parents to walk with us.  Let me know if you're interested!

  • No appointment is necessary - Sapphire team members will stay after their choroegraphy and Titanium members arrive early for your choreography.

Choreography Dates - CONFIRMED!

  • All team choreography will take place at Heat Athletics in Sussex.  While there is a parent waiting area, the gym will be closed to viewing.  
  • Choreography is split into three sessions, and attendance is mandatory at each session.
  • It is extremely important that each and every team member attend choreography.  They will be learning their specific role in choreography, and if they aren't there, there is no one there to learn their role.  Their stunt group will also suffer because they will be short a team member, and be unable to learn their stunts.

Quote of the Week ...

"Cheerleading is all about the positive.  Our job is to inspire, motivate, and electrify.  Any fool can feel good when you're winning.  But when you're down 27 points in the 4th quarter?  That's when you gotta ask yourself, who you gonna call?" ~ Christina Milan in "Man of the House"
