PICTURE DAY IS NOW APRIL 10th
We are very sorry to announce that we have to move picture day to April 10th. I have spoken to a few of you and know you made special arrangements around this day, and we are sorry for the inconvenience it's caused. Since we know this change might not work with some of you, we have added a make-up day on Thursday, April 15th if you absolutely cannot make the 10th. See TeamSnap shortly for times. We will send printed forms home, or you can print them using the link below OR you purchase ahead of time online (no form required).
WATCH PARTIES ARE SUNDAY!
Carrie Anderson, Gym Director
Your athletes did so amazing at their first competition last weekend, and we are really excited to celebrate with them this Sunday at our PJ's and POPCORN watch parties! They can wear their favorite PJ's or Cascade Elite PJ's, and bring a pillow and/or blanket. We still have our sleep items for 20% off in the ProShop if you want to pick up anything before, or the day of (can also purchase online). We will also have popcorn, but have your athlete bring a water bottle as usual. Thank you for all your popcorn donations!
During watch parties, we will watch the Spirit Brands official videos which will show the video submissions from team's across the country, plus an awards ceremony. We will also have games and activities, so have your athlete bring their cheer shoes just in case we have cheer related games. If you rather keep your cheerleader home, or if they cannot attend, you can watch the videos on Spirit Brands Facebook or their website.
Watch Party Times:
2:00-3:30pm: Royals & Princesses
3:30-5:00pm: Crowns & Majesties
5:00-6:30pm: Tiaras & Reign
6:30-8:00pm: Queens & Everett
The drop-off/pick-up line could be long this weekend. Please be patient as it will move quickly as soon as we release the previous group! Let us know if you have any questions.
Featured Coach of the Month: Courtni!
Courtni has spent this year learning and growing so much as a coach, I wanted to highlight her this week! My message across my staff and athletes is ALWAYS about growth, and I love a coach or athlete willing to admit what they don't know and work towards changing it. I'm so proud of her this season and am excited to see her continue to grow next year!
2021-2022 TRAVEL TEAMS
I've received quite a few questions about our travel teams, so I wanted to send out some additional details. This info is also great for current travel families:
WHAT TEAMS ARE TRAVEL TEAMS?
We have decided to make a change this year and instead of giving the old team name to one of our travel teams, we have decided that BOTH our travel teams will have new names. Introducing EMPIRE and LEGACY! Empire will be our Junior team ages 8-14 and Legacy will be our senior team, age 12-18. They will both compete in level 2.1 and travel to Disneyland/World for Nationals.
IS MY CHILD READY FOR A TRAVEL TEAM?
All athletes ages 8-18 are invited to join one of our two travel teams. We will make sure we place them in the appropriate spot that is both in within their ability and that challenges them! If they are at least 8, we have a place for your athlete regardless of their experience and current ability.
WHICH TEAM WILL MY CHILD BE ON?
Athletes ages 8-11 will be on the Empire and athletes aged 15+ will be on the Legacy. During placements, we will assess all the athletes together to see where best to place athletes age 12-14. If you have a preference, you can submit a request after you register for placements.
WHAT IS THE COST TO BE ON A TRAVEL TEAM?
Regular tuition and uniform costs apply to all travel teams, plus an account management fee of $200, competition costs of $550, and the trip fee of $2280. This includes sending the athlete with the team and staff/chaperones. There are other options for travel if you'd rather attend with the athlete. <DETAILS>
DOES MY CHILD NEED TO BE ABLE TO TUMBLE?
All our travel teams are level 1 tumble teams, so they must be able to compete level 1 tumbling skills, take our offered optional tumbling classes, or be willing to work on their tumbling at home. We will give them drills during practices they can do during practice and at home the first half of the season to help them build these skills.
IS NATIONALS IN DISNEYLAND OR DISNEYWORLD?
We have not yet decided if we will attend USA Jr. Spirit Nationals in Anaheim, CA or Varsity’s The Quest in Orlando, FL. We are leaning towards a Florida trip for 2022, but will need to be confident in the state’s handling of the pandemic before we begin to book travel.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
1) If you are ready to register your athlete, make sure you read the following pages on our website: <TEAM INFO>, <PLACEMENTS>, <TUITION & SCHOLARSHIPS>
2) Once you are ready to sign up, register your athlete for tryouts <HERE>
3) Lastly, complete the <REQUEST> form and indicate you'd like your athlete to be placed on a travel team. If you are uncertain, say so on the form and I will check in as we get closer!
