IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS

HOLIDAY CLOSING

*The gym will be CLOSED for Labor Day September 1st-4th


HYGEINE, PRACTICE ATTIRE, AND GRIPS

*During these hot summer months, it is very important that our athletes are coming to practices with deodorant on. We want the girls to be strong and confident and smelling fresh 😊 Athletes please wear and bring deodorant with you to practice!

*Watches and jewelry are not permitted at practices!

*Level 4 and up need their grips at all practices


COMPRESSION BRACES

*Please send in a doctors note if your child is needing to wear a brace to practice. While supportive braces can help relieve pain, the right brace for your pain will depend on your condition. Your healthcare provider will recommend the type of brace that is right for you, and when you should wear a brace. While supportive braces can be beneficial, sometimes using one can actually cause more harm than good.


2024 TRAVEL CAMP

*2024 Travel Camp will be June 22-25, 2024. SAVE THE DATE! Travel camp will be required for athletes who are currently levels 3, 4, 5, 6, Silver, Gold, and Platinum (8 or older).


MUSIC AND CHOREOGRAPHY INFO—Gold, Platinum, Level 6

*MUSIC: It’s time to send in your top three music choices for the new year! Music is due on September 3rd (Please send in the link for each piece). Coaches will listen to your choices and let athletes know at practice on September 5th which music they will use for the 2024 competitive season. Do not purchase music until you have been told by coaches which one to get.

-Use one of the following music generator websites to look through the options. Make sure all three choices you send are something that you would be happy with. You are welcome to put “first choice, second choice, third choice”, but it is not guaranteed that you will get your first choice of music.

-What are coaches looking for when choosing music? Floor music is best when there is a change of beat/tempo within the music. Sound effects are great too! Think about the style of movement that would match each music piece and think about what you are comfortable trying. Faster music generally means faster movements—keep this in mind when sending in your options!

-CHOREOGRAPHY: On September 7th, we will post the sign-up genius on the hotline for you to set up a time to get your choreography done. Each coach will have a set number of spots and times to get everyone’s choreography done. Choreography time slots will be set up for three hours and cost $200 paid directly to your choreographer, the day that your choreography is done.
