Cheer Hotline 2.8.24-2.15.24

ANNOUNCEMENTS 2.8-2.15

LOST AND FOUND WILL BE DONATED ON FEBRUARY 15TH.

ALL TEAMS: FUNDRAISER INFO

Great opportunity to help raise $ for tuition or for end of season events!

ALL STAR: END OF SEASON EVENTS

Pricing:

There will be a sports bra, spank and tank set that will be charged with March billing for every All Star member. This will be $140 and include all 3 items. Athletes were sized for these items last week by our Varsity Rep.

The rest of the fees (travel, swag bag and registration) will be billed on March 15th. We are waiting to finalize all pricing until after NCA Nationals when all bid events are complete. We will send that out the week after NCA. Reason being that we still have opportunities to get/upgrade bids in Shreveport and at NCA Nationals. Please keep in mind that your Excite Account must be in good standing to be allowed to go to either end of season event.

ALL STAR: SPECIAL SCHEDULE AND CHOREO WEEK AFTER NCA EDITED 2.8.24

We were able to get our choreographers in right after NCA from March 4th-7th! During this week, you will ONLY have to come to the time listed below. We are aware that HS tryout clinics are this week and we did our best to work around those times.

Monday 3.4: Courage 5pm-7pm/ Fearless 7-9:30

Tuesday 3.5: Dynamite 6:30pm-9pm

Wednesday 3.6: Lady eX 6:30pm-9pm

PREMIER PREP: WEEK AFTER NCA

The week after NCA we wanted to give the athletes a one night break since they will have been practicing so much. Tremor will have Tuesday, March 5th off and Electric will have Thursday, March 7th off.

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.

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!!
