Hello Cheer World Families,
Just over a week until our first competition for the majority of our teams (insert coaches anxiety levels rising here)! Lot’s of new information in this weeks email, so be sure to review.
WSF Pittsburgh General Report Times:
The final schedule will be released Tuesday from WSF. Please review the times below for a general idea of when your athlete(s) Report Times will be:
8:00 – 9:00 am — Kappa & Lambda
10:30 – 11:30 am — iota, Omicron & Delta
12:30 – 1:30 pm — Omega & Immortals
Boosters Wing Ding:
Please don’t forget to buy your tickets for the Wing Ding – there will be members of the Boosters selling them this Sunday at the gym from 12:00 – 7:00 – please be sure to bring your check book or cash!! If you cannot purchase them on Sunday they are always available at the Front Desk. The ticket sales will end shortly as we need to get a count to the Grindstone by next weekend!!
Cheer World Competition Hair Master Class:
Bring your daughter, a bow, a pony, hair spray and a brush and learn EXACTLY how to create the mastered Cheer World All Star hair look! The athlete’s hair should ALREADY be straightened. This Sunday, November 15th at 6pm.
The Itchy & Scratchy Show:
Part of the “territory” of having a children’s activity center is the threat of lice & other common ailments. Although we can’t eliminate the risk, we can minimize it. Please be sure to remind/encourage your athlete(s) to wash their hands, use the hand sanitizer and dress according to the weather . For the sake of everyone’s comfort, please take the extra steps needed to prevent the spread of lice as well.
PLEASE DO YOUR PART AS A PARENT:
Some facts about those little buggers:
Thanksgiving Schedule: (REMINDER)
As a reminder, Cheer World is CLOSED Thursday, 11/26 – Saturday, 11/28 for the Thanksgiving holiday. There are still team practices, classes and all programming through Wednesday, 11/25 and resumes on Sunday, 11/29.
Cheer World is going Gold!: (REMINDER)
As stated at the Showcase, Cheer World is supporting the Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer Campaign to raise funds for University Hospitals / Ranbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.
We hope to see every Cheer World athlete wearing them at practice, competitions, & even pushing their friends at school to get involved!
The laces are $5 each. Contact Pam Martin at email@example.com to purchase. Or you can purchase in the Cheer World Family room on the following days and times:
Sunday, 11/15 11:30 – 6:30 pm
Wednesday, 11/18 4:00 – 8:00 pm
Thursday, 11/19 5:30 – 9:00 pm
Old Couches Apply Here: (REMINDER)
We are looking for a new (used, but new to us is of really what we mean) couch/futon for the athlete lounge. If anyone has or knows of one to donate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org !
Spring Cheer…not Break!: (REMINDER)
This is a good time to remind families that Spring Break travel and competitive cheer do not mix well. One of the biggest competitions in the Midwest, and one of our best chances of a Paid/At Large World’s and/or Summit Bid, is April 1st -3rd in Columbus, OH. Practices missed the week prior to that event are very detrimental to the team and can result in removal from the routine. It’s a self rewarding system since athletes are bettering their opportunities to earn a trip to Disney just a month later. Further, April is the gear up and focus toward the post season, practiced missed in this month are also detrimental to the team. As always, thank you for your commitment!!

The first competition for the majority of our program is finally here!!! The coaching staff is thrilled for Sunday and can’t wait to get this competitive season rolling! Be sure to review Report Times below.
Alpha families, please note that practice is cancelled for this Sunday due to competition.
COA Holiday Kick Off Report Times:
Please CLICK HERE for the Report & Competition Times for this weekends event. Please note, the REPORT TIMES listed are when athletes will need to be fully dressed and ready to go & meet the Team Mom’s. The coaches will take the athletes 15-20 minutes following the Report Times for warm up.
We encourage athletes and families to come early and/or stay later than just “your team(s)” scheduled times to support the entire CW Family!!
Competition Hair: (changed for the 2014-2015 Competition Season)
For the 2014 – 2015 Season, program hair should be FLAT IRON straight, pulled ALL UP in a high pony tail, bow facing forward with tails down. Tease above the bow. We are asking that parents please do not just leave hair “naturally straight” we would like to be straightened with a flat iron. This is what we are most worried about. Flat, mean flat ironed and not just leave it like it always is. If parents bring their kids with “naturally straight” hair we need to ask them to flat iron it or at least make it look like you tried to meet the policies, lol. Thanks! Please reference HERE for a Program Hair Tutorial video. This is the look for all Non-Worlds teams for the 2014-2015 season. World’s teams have a more extensive and time consuming look.
If your athlete has hair that does not straighten, please leave it curly but pull ALL UP in a high pony with bow facing forward.
If your athlete’s hair is too short to pull all up, you may pull it half up, bow facing forward with a tease above the bow.
The bow will need to be bobby pinned down.
Athlete Pick Up After Practices:
We are asking that parents do NOT form a line to pick up athletes following practices, and to please pull into a parking space to wait for their athlete(s). We have luckily only had close calls so far, but we have a had a few reports of kids running out from in between the lined up cars and almost getting hit. We appreciate your cooperation on this!
The next scheduled Flippin’ Friday will be December 19th, 6:30 – 8:30 pm. CLICK HERE to register today!
Picture Pick Up:
Starting Monday, 11/24 pictures ordered from Jamie Christian will be available for pick up at the Front Desk. Each order has a customer service card with it, but if there are any issues with your order please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spirit Wear Has Arrived: (REMINDER)
Our spirit wear orders are FINALLY here! Thank you for your patience. The pom pullover jersey is a very hot item right now, and we have had to wait for this item through a few backorders.
Please note that if you placed an order for a coffee mug or velocity short, we did not have enough orders to meet the minimum quantity, so you were not charged or will be refunded for that item.
If you ordered iSparkle, that is also available for pick up at the Front Desk. Please be sure to mention you ordered iSparkle as well!
Also, ANNOUNCING: SPIRIT WEAR SUNDAY SALE after Thanksgiving (Sunday, November 30)!! You won’t want to miss this shopping stop as we will have a whole room full of sale items perfect for stocking stuffers at a very special blowout price of $5!!!!
Cheer World Inclement Weather Policies: (REMINDER)
Please be aware of the following:
1. We do not follow any particular public school closing. Typically, since our first class begins at 3:30 p.m. or later, we wait until 2-2:30 p.m. to make the decision to close. In more severe circumstances, we may make the decision earlier. We typically base our decision off of road conditions, to ensure safe travel & typically don’t take low temperature into account as our athletes are not “waiting for the bus”. We do take temperature into account during summer.
2. We will notify you in the following ways:
a. via email
b. by posting a message on our website homepage: www.cheerworldallstars.com
c. on our Facebook page
d. on our Twitter
e. by recorded message on our voice mail at the gym.
3. If in doubt, you can call the gym since we will always try to have someone there to answer your questions (depending on the severity of the weather). 440-792-4027.
Lost’N’Found Relocated: (FINAL REMINDER)
We have moved the lost in found into the “new gym” vs the “old gym” side. It is located just inside the gym door, in the corner near the utility sink. We figured having it more accessible to parents was a better option, since it was the athletes who lost an item in the first place:) Be sure to check this before 11/26 as any items left past that point will be donated to charity.
Zeta Worlds Fundraising: (REMINDER)
be sure to support Cheer World Zeta’s fundraising efforts so they can go to Worlds this spring. Visit gofundme.com/fkqkic or CLICK HERE to donate today!
