Weekly Reader 11/13/15

Hello Cheer World Families,

This Week:

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.


  • Check your children on a regular basis.
  • Keep your athletes’ hair close to their head, in a bun or braid, if possible while attending practices or classes.
  • Take appropriate steps if your child is indeed infected.
  • Keep them away form public areas during the treatment of the Lice

Some facts about those little buggers:

  • Lice survive/reproduce on human blood; they can live a short period of time on an inanimate object; the most common transference is from scalp to scalp.
  • There are many products available to treat this problem, including shampoos and electrostatic combs that literally zap the lousy louse to death!
  • A louse or a person that contracts lice is not a result of a “dirty” environment.
  • The best way to kill Lice is to remove it from the infected area and not necessarily use loads of chemicals or sprays


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 eamartin@sbcglobal.net 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 vic@cheerworldallstars.com !


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!!
