Dear WHC Parents and athletes,
This week, practices are open.
Theme Week: Come dressed to your 2nd practice of the week in your best holiday attire, reindeer antlers, elves, ugly sweater, holiday prints, red and green all over!!!
LOVE: will be having an extra on December 21 from 6-8 pm.
DEVOTION: will be having an extra on December 20 from 10 am – 1 pm.
Free Flexibility Classes: Illusions Rhythmic Gymnastics is hosting two FREE flexibility classes for all WHC athletes on Tuesday, December 22 from 6-7 and 7-8 pm. Please feel free to attend one or both of these. Flexibility is a major component to all aspects of cheer (not just flyers), so come on out, and learn some new tips and techniques.
Christmas Break: Our last (regular) practices prior to Christmas Break will be on Sunday, December 20th. We will be open for Practices again starting Monday, January 4, 2015.
WHC Annual Skating Party: WHC is hosting our annual skating party at the Tantallon Rink – December 19, 2015 at 2:30 pm. We are asking everyone to bring a food drive item to donate to Feed NS. We will be serving hot chocolate and Timbits. We will also have a special surprise for our CIT’s at the skating party!!
Jackets & Hoodies are in: if you have ordered one of these, please pick it up in the office. Please contact Caren@westhalifaxcheer.com if you have any questions regarding your orders.
Weather: Be aware that winter is coming and roads can get slippery, as can the concrete floors in our gym. Please don’t wear your outside footwear on our mats, they often get stained with salt from outdoor shoes.
WHC Showcase- WHC’s 2nd Annual Showcase will be held at JL Ilsley High School on January 23, 2016 from 4-7 pm. We have the cafeteria as well so we can have refreshments. The showcase is an important annual event where all WHC teams showcase their routine for all other WHC teams prior to our first competition. This helps prepare all the athletes for competition and is a great way to show families and athletes all of WHC routines (without being at a full all-day competition). This is hugely successful in helping get the performance “jitters” out for our athletes. The showcase is mandatory.
