Hi WHC Families
A few notices this week:
Closed Practices: This week practices are closed.
Devotion Extra Practice: Devotion is having an extra practice on Sunday, February 28 from 10 am – 1 pm.
Theme Week: This week is “East Coast Represent” week! Come dressed in your favorite attire that represents East Coast to you at your last practice this week.
Precision/Ambition Team Builder at Get Air: Precision & Ambition are going to Get Air Trampoline Park on February 26 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. Cost is $10/athlete.
Gate Locked: As of Monday, February 22, 2016, the gate to the back of the LED Roadway Lighting building will be locked. For those of you who have keys to the gym, you will now need a key to the gate. It is to be opened at the beginning of the first practice, and then locked when the last person leaves. I will be getting copies of the gate key made and left in the safe. If you take a key, please sign it out (sheet will be in the office).
Lost & Found: We will be donating the lost & found items by the end of this week. Please look to see if any of these items are yours before they’re gone!
Maritime Meltdown Cheer Competition: Our next competition is March 5-6 in Truro at the Rath Eastlink Community Centre (http://www.ratheastlinkcommunitycentre.ca/). We do not yet have a finalized schedule. Once we receive it, we will send it out. We should have the final schedule by next week – we will send it as soon as we receive it. As per our policies, if an athlete misses practices during the last week leading up to a competition, WHC can change that athlete’s positions and/or replace her for that competition. This rule is in place due to safety reasons. If the routine is altered while the athlete is away, and there may not be enough time to safely teach the changes to the athlete, it can potentially be dangerous. This rule is not applied in every single case, but can be applied when/if necessary at the discretion the WHC directors.
Florida: I have just sent out a separate email to the participants of the Florida trip regarding a few items. If you are going to Florida but don’t receive this email from me, let me know.
March Break Camp: Still spaces in our March Break camp!! Please help spread the word: https://westhalifaxcheer.com/march-break-camp/. You can register for the whole week or just certain days. Cost is $45/day or $200 for the full week, HST included. There’ll be field trips (included!). We are still working on the details for the field trips, but right now, one is likely to the Canada Games Centre for swimming & to the library, and the other is undecided but could be either a trip to the movie theatre, or to Hop Skip Jump.
