Dear WHC Families
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! It’s EXPO week!!
This week practices are closed.
Cheer Expo is this weekend. The schedule for Cheer Expo can be found here: https://westhalifaxcheer.com/competition-schedules/ Please note that the schedule is different for Saturday & Sunday.
Note that the cost to attend Expo as a spectator is higher than most other competitions, as they are not regulated by Cheer Nova Scotia. For spectator info, click here.
Wonder & Innovation: There will be no Wonder & Innovation practice this Sunday, April 2 due to the competitive teams being at Cheer Expo.
Floor moving for Expo: As some of you know, we are obligated to bring our 9-strip 54×42 spring floor to Cheer Expo, along with 9 additional mats, for the purposes of the competition. It is this agreement that allowed us to be able to purchase the springs on our second floor for our athletes to practice on earlier than we would have if we did it on our own. We would love to have some parents help with the transport and set up, and tear down of the floor! Here is the schedule/plan. If you’re able to help with any of these times, please advise, and we can add you to the list when we make sure we have enough people! Many hands make light work, so anything you can offer is very much appreciated.
Thursday, March 31, 2016: At the end of LOVE & DEVOTION practices (9:30 pm), we will pack up the floor and load it onto the U-Haul truck which we are renting for the weekend (i.e. no waiting for it to show up!). We are expecting the LOVE & DEVOTION athletes to stay for a bit and help out!
Friday, April 1, 2016 at 7:30 am at the Halifax Forum: We will meet at the Halifax Forum on Friday morning at 7:30 am to unload the truck and to set up the floor. I am planning to go to the forum to set up, and then go into work afterward. If we have sufficient people, this should take approximately 1 hour.
Sunday, April 3, 2016 after Cheer Expo final awards (~5 pm): Load truck at the Halifax Forum with our floor, and then unload it at the Orange Dome.
Tune in to Global TV this Friday morning (April 1) as Ashley and a few WHC athletes will be kicking off Cheer Expo weekend with Andrea Dion.
Extra Practices: Devotion will have an extra practice on Sunday, April 10, 2016 from 12 pm to 3 pm.
Florida final meeting: There will be a final parent and athlete Florida meeting on Sunday, April 10 from 6 pm – 7 pm. This is to review the itinerary and to discuss any last minute concerns/questions!
Practices for non-senior teams April 13-20, 2016:
WHC is working to provide continuity for teams during the senior trip to Florida. The following is the practice schedule during the week of April 13 – 20, 2016.
Note that Precision’s team is made up of many crossovers to senior teams, and many will be away, so it was decided that they will not have practice during the week the seniors are in Florida.

2016-2017 WHC CHEER SEASON: SAVE THE DATE!
WHC Staff is working on a great season for 2016 & 2017 starting with a separate skills evaluation session for our existing WHC athletes who are returning next season!
The Skills Evaluation Sessions for our existing/returning athletes will be categorized by Level (not just age). This session will be held on Sat. May 14, 2016.
We will have an online registration link available next week to pre-register.
The evaluation sessions for brand new WHC athletes will be held the weekend of May 28 and 29, 2016. The online registration links for these sessions will be available next week.
See you this weekend at Expo
