Hello Cheer World Families,

 

This Week:

 

Tis the season to spread cheer!!  After a great start to our competitive season, these next few weeks are a great time for our athletes and teams to recharge & rebuild some amazing skills into their routines for the next wave of competitions!

 

Please be careful while on the tiled areas at the gym as the winter weather makes it slippery!  Also, please remind your athletes to always wash their hands so we can keep our athletes as healthy as possible as plenty of “winter bugs” are making their way around.

 

Finally, we are excited to start collecting gifts for our Adopt-A-Family program in conduction with NEOPATS (see below for more information).  We BELIEVE the best part, and true SPIRIT of the Holiday Season is getting to help others!

 

OPEN Gym!!:

We are excited to announce that starting this Friday, December 13th (don’t be scared) we will have open gym from 7:00 – 8:30 pm.  Current members of our All Star program pay only $10 to attend.  Non-members can attend for $15. (Brand NEW athletes will need to pay a Registration Fee as well and be enrolled by a Parent/Guardian)

 

No need to sign up, this is on a drop in basis!

 

JAMfest Cleveland Wrap Up:

Congrats to all the teams from this past weekends competition.  Cheer World dominated the event with 7 of our 10 teams that competed taking first place, along with two 2nd place finishes and a fourth.  We had both the Level 2 and Level 5 Grand Champs (this means they had the highest overall score in that level for the entire competition) and one FULL PAID bid to The US Finals!

We were so proud of the performance by Zeta, who did a phenomenal job for their first outing of the season.  And of course, The Immortals hit the mat with some amazing skills and energy.  Although their routine was cut short, we can not wait for the next event when they compete for the first time!

Post Season Information:

The final event scheduled for the regular season will take place the first weekend in April.  Following that, pending each teams respective qualifications, will be our Post Season!  After this past weekends event, every CW team has received a first place bid (even one FULL PAID) to The US Finals.  The program has not attended any Summit or Worlds bid events at this point.

 

We will be releasing more information on our “Post Season” after the new year so families can plan any needed travel and fully know what to expect.

 

NEOPAT Adopt A Family: (REMINDER)

 

We are excited to announce that once again we will be partnering with NEOPAT (neopatriotism.org) this holiday season to adopt military families from Northeast Ohio who may need some extra help.  These families have made sacrifices to keep our country safe, now it is our turn to show our appreciation.

The families that we adopted last year were overwhelmed with our Cheer and Gymnastic families’ generosity.  We hope to do the same this year.  As NEOPAT receives families that need assistance, they will match them up with us.  Please drop off gifts to the CW Front Desk.

Vacation Notification & Attendance Policy Clarification: (REMINDER)

 

The Cheer World program has made major strides in growth and development the past few seasons.  That growth has not only been with the athletes skills, or numbers, or new gym space, but with the expectations of what it takes to be a championship program.  We completely understand that families may choose to go on vacation at a time that is inopportune for our program and we hope families can understand that we must make decisions that are in the best interest of our teams and program.  Attendance leading into a competition is vital.  If an athlete misses two or more practices leading into a competition, they will be removed from the competition.  This is especially true for un-excused absences, and vacations during competition season are un-excused as indicated in our   Attendance Policies.

 

So that the coaching staff can properly plan for any adjustments needed, we have put together a Vacation Notification Form, which you can fill out by CLICKING HERE.  We are aware that the American Cheer Power Midwest Nationals event, scheduled 3/28-30 & the Cheersport Cleveland event, scheduled 4/5 may conflict with “Spring Break”.  Both competitions are important (as any competition is important), but the American Cheer Power event is the largest competition held in Ohio, as well as a Worlds and Summit bid event.  We appreciate our families understanding on this matter.

 

Holiday Team Party: (REMINDER)

 

On Monday, 12/23 we will be hosting our Holiday Team Parties.  Please see the times listed below as to when your athlete(s) are scheduled for their party.

 

9:30 – 11:30 am (Youth teams and below) – Alpha, Beta, Lambda, Gamma, Delta

 

12:00 – 2:00 pm (Junior teams and up) – Epsilon, Kappa, Omicron, Sigma, Omega, Immortals

 

*If an athlete is a crossover between the age division, they are invited to attend either party or both if they so choose!

 

Following the Holiday Parties, the gym will be closed from 12/24 – 1/1.  We will resume our School Year Schedule on Thursday, 1/2.

 

Stay off the floor!: (FINAL REMINDER)

 

We wanted to give a reminder to all parents and family members that they need to stay off the floor during a teams practice.  For the safety of our athletes as well as parents, only coaches and CW athletes are permitted past the tiled area of the gym.  The coaching staff will always do their best to be available prior and post practices (when possible).

 

If there is a matter in which a parent wishes to schedule a meeting with the coaches, please email pat@cheerworldallstars.com

 

Pop Up Pro Shop Recap: (FINAL REMINDER)

 

Many families visited our Pop Up Pro Shop a couple of weeks ago and we sold out of a ton of items.  All items that remain will still be available in our Spirit Shop near the Front Desk year round!  We are excited to see all of the families in their new CW Gear at the upcoming competitions!

Crossover Billing: (FINAL REMINDER)

Emails were sent home with the fee schedule and payment plan for crossover athletes.
