Attendance Policy

Rules Regarding Absence & Tardiness from Practices:

All Star cheerleading is equivalent to a travel team or a competitive team. We expect 100% dedication to your team. That means attendance is MANDATORY.

1. OC Elite practices should take precedence over all other activities. Please remember that this is an ALL STAR COMPETITION SQUAD. Your acceptance of a position on the squad is your commitment to attend all practices. While we would like to have everyone present at all practices, we realize this is not a realistic expectation. If for some reason you are unable to attend please notify 24 hours in advance, via email, or personal contact by phone. YOU MUST receive an email confirmation or a call (from coach or staff) that we received your request too miss a practice. Do not feel that because you are paying to participate, you can choose to skip a practice. All members pay the same tuition and expect you to be at practice, on time, every time. Excessive absences will result in (a) not being able to compete with the team or (b) being asked to leave the squad.

3. Your coach will determine if your absence from practice is excused or unexcused; do not ask a teammate to pass on the information.

Four (4) unexcused absences may result in dismissal from the squad.

Excused absences will include:
1. Illness to the cheerleader and/or immediate family members requiring the cheerleaders travel and attention.
2. A Death in the immediate family.
3. You are expected to call the gym or a teammate for an update after missed practices. If new material was covered you should get a teammate to teach you the new material before the next practice.
4. If you are ill but not contagious, We would prefer you to be at the practice to watch from the sidelines for any changes that may affect you in the routine.
5. We understand that there are circumstances where your absence is unavoidable, but keep in mind that this is an activity that you have chosen and your attendance, or lack of it, affects every member on your squad.

PUNCTUALITY
1. Your coach will assign extra conditioning after practice as a penalty for tardiness.
2. Excessive tardiness may result in (a) not being able to compete with the team or (b) being asked to leave that squad.
3. Contact the gym in advance if you expect to be late for a practice so your coach will be able to plan the days practice more effectively.
4. Dont waste valuable practice time. Try to arrive 10 minutes before practice to put away your gear and get warmed up on the assigned floor. You must stay on the warm-up floor and away from other classes.

I've read the above and agree.
 
Practices and Competition

Cheerleaders must attend all practices.
Attendance at weekly tumbling classes during routine practice season will be MANDATORY at a set date that the director chooses. The parents will be notified 30 days prior so budget can be planned. There will be no make-ups for non- attendance.
It is up to you to stay informed about your teams schedule. Check e-mails and website often.
Practices are two times a week, and possibly 3 during routine practice season.
No one is allowed to yell onto the floor or to speak to any team member or coach while practice is in session.
There will be no cell phone use during practice.
White cheerleading shoes must be worn to practice.
Appropriate underclothes should be worn at all times (sports bras, bloomers, etc.). Sports bras should be worn under practice shirt.
Use of tobacco, alcoholic beverages or illegal drugs is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated.
Do not complain, make excuses, back talk or use any disrespectful gestures or profanity to your coaches.
Be respectful to your teammates, coaches, parents and spectators.
The gym is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Squads and routines are left to the discretion of the coaches.
During the year, each team has additions and losses to the team, which may require the coach to move a cheerleader to another squad. All decisions are made by the coach based on what is best for the team(s). There will be a cut off date set by director to protect the routine longevity.
Parents: Practice and competitions should not be used as a punishment for your childs actions. They are a team and must practice and compete as a team. Please find another method of punishment.
Practices will be added and changed throughout the year depending on the competition schedule.
Please feel free to speak to your childs coach about anything; just remember to do it at the appropriate time. Approaching a coach in the middle of a practice would not be an appropriate time.
Never post any negative comments on any website or chat rooms.
The dismissal or addition of a team member is solely the coaches decision.
Parents, relatives, friends and cheerleaders are never allowed to speak with competition officials for any reason.
We recommend all cheerleaders to use the same accommodations for out of town competitions.
Each child is required to have a chaperone. Your coaches are not your childs chaperones.
Please understand that all out of town competitions are not vacation times. You are required to attend all extra practices that your coaches call, no matter what time.
Full uniform, skirt, top, bloomers, bow and shoes will be worn into every competition unless your coach advises otherwise, team warm-ups if cold.
All cheerleaders must stay in uniform until after the award ceremonies are over.
No pajama pants.
If you do not attend a competition without prior approval from you coach, it will result in immediate dismissal from the squad and no fees will be refunded.
The Director may change, add or subtract any rule at any time.

I've read the above and agree.

Parents/Adults

Parents are only permitted in the gym for parent participation classes led by an instructor and supervised open gym with preschool and toddlers. I understand the dangers of entering the gym such as uneven surfaces and have viewed the Party & Open Gym Safety Video at oconeegymnastics.com. We ask that children do not wear socks to prevent slipping on mats. If parents/adults decide to enter into the gym for any other reason they assume all risk. Adults are NOT permitted on any equipment including trampolines and pits, doing so willingly violates PCA/OGC’s safety policy. NO ONE is allowed on team equipment. Adults must also wear socks. This caution is posted throughout the parent viewing area.
