Weekly Reader 8/7/15

Hello Cheer World Families,

 

This Week:

This Weekly Reader has minimal new information.  We are in the thick of choreography and teams are looking great!

We caught a typo in our “Important Dates” that we released earlier in the season.  The gym is NOT closed on 8/30 & 31 for Labor Day, since this year Labor Day is 9/7.  This means there WILL be Sunday practices on 8/30.  The gym will be closed 9/6 & 9/7 for the holiday weekend.

We would also like to thank our friends from CreationsbyCandC.com who visited during the Fam Jam!

Finally, during choreography and skills camps, the Front Desk is not open.  Please plan on emailing or contacting coaches directly if you need to pass along any needed information.  As a reminder, every coach in the gym has a firstname@cheerworldallstars.com email address (i.e. vic@cheerworldallstars.com)

 

Choreography and Camp Schedule: (REMINDER)

Choreography Camps are under way.  Please CLICK HERE for the Choreography Schedule.  Adjustments from originally posted schedule are noted in RED.


Car Wash & Hot Dog Sale Sing Up!:
(REMINDER)

The rescheduled Car Wash & Hot Dog Sale will take place on Saturday, August 22nd from 10:00am – 2:00pm.  We need volunteers to Sign Up again!  Even if you signed up for the original, we need you to “re-sing” up to make sure our spots are filled. Hopefully those who couldn’t make the first date are able to make the second!

Please CLICK HERE to sign up today!

 

Make Up Kits: (REMINDER)

Attention Alpha, Lambda, Delta, Epsilon, Kappa, iota & Omicron families:  Make Up Kits are at the Front Desk and available for purchase.  These are the same kits as last season, so returning athletes may not need to purchase another kit.  The kits are $24.99 plus tax.  We will be hosting a “how to apply” clinic for team parents, as well as supplying a video on this years look.  For any new families, and to be certain we are all on the same page, all CW All Stars are required to wear the Make Up design on competition days.

Worlds athletes will receive a separate email with explanation of make up needs.

 

Book your Hotels for the Season!: (REMINDER)

Please CLICK HERE for the spreadsheet that contains important hotel booking information for the entire season. Hotel blocks have been secured at most of the competitions.  If the block is not open yet, this information will be available in an updated spreadsheet in the upcoming Weekly Reader correspondence.  Thank you for understanding that the competitions require us to block these hotels through their housing companies because of the “Stay to Play” policies in place.  We try to comply and have families stay in these blocks as much as possible.  For NCA Dallas, this policy is strictly enforced and the team can be disqualified if you do not stay in the reserved hotel block.  We have gotten on every list at the earliest possible time and have tried our best to be as close to the competition venues as possible for each city.

We have had several questions regarding on when to book travel for competitions.  Unfortunately, we don’t have any more information on General Schedules for the events at this point than what can be found on the Event Producers websites.  As a general recommendation, any of the flight travel competitions we recommend planning on departing Friday and returning Monday.  CW Policy is that all athletes must arrive the day before we compete for any out of town events (Regional Events such as Columbus & Pittsburgh do not fall under the “out of town” category), as we don’t want athletes traveling all day then competing, or running the risk of a delayed/missed flight etc.  Once an athletes awards session is over, they are dismissed from the competition.

Please note that some of these blocks have imminent deadlines – If you are traveling to Indianapolis or Atlanta and wish to stay in the block, please reserve your room before August 1.

Each hotel has different cancellation policies which can be found when you enter the reservation site.

If you have any questions about hotel booking, please contact Julie Lyden at slyden@hotmail.com or 440-552-2907.

Save the Date: (REMINDER)

This is also a great for opportunity for our older All Star athletes to instruct and run this day camp.  More information will be out soon from the Boosters!

 

Life Coach First…: (FINAL REMINDER)

Cheer World is proud to continue our passion for giving back to the community by serving others.  We will continue our tradition of providing meals and cheer at the Ronald McDonald Family Room at the Cleveland Clinic.

We have 1 date left this summer:

Thursday August 13

We leave the parking lot of CW at 3:40pm and return around 7:30pm.  We can take a small group of  high school students.  If you would like to join us for this wonderful experience please contact Megan Lyden at 440-596-9193 as soon as possible.

Our first meal is being generously donated by a family of a graduated CW athlete.  If anyone would like to help with the second meal, please let Megan know that as well.

 

Believe,

 

The Cheer World Staff
