    • Please be on time - late arrivals will result in extra conditioning up to sitting out of a quarter or the halftime performance depending upon how late you are.
  • All team members to arrive in full uniform from head to toe.
  • What to bring:  water bottle, LIGHT snack for half-time.  
  • Coach will text all families Saturday morning 2 hours prior to your team's arrival time if the girls will wear their uniform without their bodyliner.  If you do not receive this text, the expectation is for you to wear your bodyliner. 
    • At all times, all teams to perform in "uniform" (or matching) uniforms.  This means, if the decision is made to remove the bodyliner, all athletes will perform without their bodyliner.
  • As we experienced this past weekend, the B/C/D games typically run late - delays in a game is a domino effect for all following games, especially weather delays.  Thank you for your flexibility and understanding with these time delays. 
  • As I have commitments Saturday afternoons after football and must leave by 3pm, we will always have the D squad start cheering at 1:30pm (with a 1pm arrival time), even if the 6th grade game is still ongoing.  We will have them join the C squad for the remainder of the 6th grade game, and the D squad will continue to cheer for the 5th grade team until 3pm at the latest.
