Weekly Reader 11/20/14

This Week:

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!


Flippin’ Friday:

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 racheljcphoto@gmail.com.


NEOPAT Adopt a Family:
Cheer World has partnered once again with NEOPAT to sponsor local military families in need this holiday season.  The military families have been overwhelmed by our generosity in the past and we hope to do the same for these families that we will adopt this season.  Look for a sign up genius to be sent out very soon with items that the families are asking for.  All items need to be wrapped, labeled and at Cheer World no later than December 14 so that the gifts can be delivered to the families in time for Christmas.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email Amy Offredo at aoffredo541@gmail.com.  Thank you once again for your support and generosity for these brave men and women who sacrifice so much for this great country of ours.  Happy Holidays

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!

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!
