Cheer Hotline 1.25.24-2.1.24

Updated: Jan 25

ANNOUNCEMENTS 1.25-2.1

PREMIER PREP AND ALL STAR: ACA NATIONALS

Parent Contest!

-We have been noticing at events that a lot of parents are on their phones during performances. We cannot stress enough how much a loud crowd makes a difference to these kids on the floor! SO, we decided we are going to do a contest! Let’s kick off nationals season being LOUD and showing our athletes how much we support them!

-Rules:

*No more than 3 parents can be videoing during their team’s performance (Alison will be screen recording on varsity tv and sending to parents as well so you all have a guaranteed clear video)

*Parents have to be loud during the ENTIRE performance- no silent moments

*Be EXTRA loud in stunt sections when they hit

*Bonus points if you are just as loud for OTHER Excite teams that your athlete isn’t on!

-Winners:

*If coaches feel you were loud and proud enough, then your team will get a chicken nugget party!!

*EVERY team can win one- we are not limiting how many teams we give them to.

Athlete Shoe Tag:

All athletes received their shoe tag at practice on either 1.24 or 1.25. This needs to be tied neatly on athlete’s right shoe. They will not be allowed into the warm up room or on the competition floor without it! If you lose yours, it is $200 to replace and will be out of your pocket. Please make sure these are tied securely to your athlete’s competition shoes!

General Info:

-Spectator Tickets- all tickets must be purchased online https://www.showclix.com/event/aca-grand-nationals3DAB60o

-Teams will be performing in 2 different areas of the venue; Arena and Hall. Please take note of where your team will be on the schedule below. Awards will be held in the same venue that your team competes in.

Schedule and Excite Schedule:

PREMIER PREP AND ALL STAR: TUMBLE CLASSES

With NCA right around the corner, we want to be sure that our athletes are staying safe and healthy! In our effort to do so, we are making some guidelines for this next month in tumble classes.

1. Athletes will NOT be introduced to new skills. If they have a skill outside of their level, they will still be allowed to work on it if it is not brand new to them. Now is not the time to try something for the first time or to learn something brand new.

2. Your routine tumbling skills will be a priority in these classes AND private lessons. Again, they can do skills outside of their level, but their routine skills are the main focus.

3. We will NOT be requiring All Star athletes to attend tumbling classes through NCA nationals for Gold Stars.

ALL TEAMS: NOELLE FITNESS CLASS

Noelle has adjusted some of the times and offers to better fit people’s schedules. Be sure to look at the new info and to sign up!! CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION

ALL TEAMS: EXTERNAL PE

We are aware that a lot of athletes are now eligible for external pe with the adjusted requirements. When submitting your application please list Alison Howard as the coach and cheer@excitegym.com as the email address. If you already submitted under a different coach, we have already emailed and taken care of that for you.

ALL STAR TEAMS: PRACTICE UPDATE

Originally coaches and seniors were going to be gone through Sunday April, 14th and we were not going to practice. However, since All Star Worlds dates are so close, we will be flying back Saturday evening and WILL be having practices on April 14th. Please make sure all athletes are present for this practice. This is in the Important Dates Section.

TREMOR/ ELECTRIC/ COURAGE AND DYNAMITE: NCA HEADS UP

Since you are all competing on Friday, we wanted to be sure you were aware and were planning that you will likely have to miss a portion or the full day of school. The event starts at 8am in the morning and will run until 8pm that day. Once we get times, we will release them to you as soon as possible!!
