NEOPAT Adopt A Family:

A note from the NEOPAT organization:

 

Dear friends of Cheer World,

I just wanted to remind those of you that signed up for this year’s “Adopt a Family” that the gifts are due at Cheer World by Wednesday night.  I am meeting a representative who will then be taking our gifts to the family on Thursday.  

For those of you that participated, we can’t thank you enough for your generosity.  We know that this family will have a very Merry Christmas and one that they will remember for years to come.  

If you would like to learn more about NEOPAT and other ways to get involved, please check them out at www.neopatriotism.org or on Facebook or Twitter @NEOPatriotism.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!

Sincerely,

Amy & Dominic Offredo (co-founder of NEOPAT)

 

OPEN Gym!!: (REMINDER)

Again, this Friday, December 20th 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!

 

We will NOT have Open Gym on Friday, 12/27 as the gym is closed for the holiday.

 

Holiday Team Party: (FINAL 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.

 

Please RSVP by Friday, 12/20 by CLICKING HERE!

 

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.

 

Vacation Notification & Attendance Policy Clarification: (REVISED)

Please submit Notification Forms by Friday, 12/27 deadline!!

 

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.

 

 

Post Season Information: (REMINDER)

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.

 

Believe,

The Cheer World Staff
