Work Bond/ Equipment Bond/Lottery:
Checks will be collected at Parent Meeting/ Uniform handout, checks will not be cashed if work bond is completed and equipment is handed in. 
Lottery Tickets will be handed out at this time (paid for along with registration).

BABY BOWS DO NOT PAY FOR ANY BONDS OR FUNDRAISERS.
Baby Bows will have a brief meeting and receive their t-shirts, shorts and bow on the first day of practice.

Attendance:
Attendance is mandatory for all practices, games and Clipper events. Cheer is a team sport and if even one cheerleader is missing, it impacts the entire team! As always, practice will be every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from August 1-August 24, and attendance at all four weeks of practice will be a consideration when deciding our competition teams. Girls interested in competing are strongly encouraged to attend our Cheer Chaos Kick-Off Camp, and attendance at the NHS Cheer Clinic is mandatory for all competition teams.
  • If your cheerleader is missing from a stunt we must replace her for the stunt to go up
  • If your cheerleader is not there to learn the dance, the coaches can’t completely re-teach it when she returns or the routine will NEVER be complete
  • We will not allow stunting without adequate practice; it is simply not safe! 
Competition Teams:
I am EXTREMELY excited for the competition season this year after our great Comp season last year, and I hope you all are as well! Our 2022 competition teams made us all very PROUD! We plan to compete in 5 competitions again this year. The first competition is slated for October 28th and the last will be on December 9th. We NEED indoor practice space which gets very expensive. My goal is to keep your fees at a minimum. Since we want our girls to continue to have the same things as they did last year, all comp girls will need to participate in our Competition fundraiser. 
 
If you completely finish the fundraiser you will pay NO COMP FEES, receive your COMP BOW FOR FREE, your COMP PRACTICE GEAR FOR FREE and a SPECIAL COVER UP JERSEY FOR FREE! You will not be able to purchase the Comp cover up, you must earn it! 
 
Competition is a BIG commitment but it is SO rewarding for these girls and shows them that hard work pays off!
 
NEW THIS YEAR:
Competition Cheerwill be by invitation only; invitations will be extended based on the following criteria:
 
6U, 8U and 10U Criteria:
  • Commitment and attendance during the previous comp season and game day practices
  • Your cheerleader’s interest and ability to fully participate in practice with minimal distractions
12U Criteria:
  • Commitment and attendance during the previous comp season and game day practices
  • Your cheerleader’s interest and ability to fully participate in practice with minimal distractions
  • Level of skill and ability to cheer, dance, stunt, tumble and jump as assessed during our Competition Team try-out (date TBD)
A Note from Coach Alisha: 
There will be many exciting opportunities for your daughter this season: Cheer Chaos Kick-off Camp, NHS High School Clinic, Youth Night, Nazareth Halloween Parade, Coca-Cola Park Performance, Cheer Competitions and much more! Please keep an eye on your emails for updates and join us on our Clipper Cheer Chatter Facebook Group (link below).
