This week, practices are OPEN for viewing.
Wow, what a GREAT Cheer Expo!! Huge congratulations to all teams. We won some amazing banners, including CANADIAN COACHES OF THE YEAR, Jana Nickerson and Ashley Astephen!!!! Also, we won, for the 2nd year running, BEST FANS IN THE STANDS! Well deserved. Congratulations all around!
Cheer Expo always reminds me why we love this sport so much. The excitement, the music, the fans, the intensity – so much fun.
Thank you SO MUCH to the crew who helped us move our floor to & from the Expo stage. MUCH LOVE to you guys. We really couldn’t do this without you!
Scores & Judges’ Feedback: The coaches will be reviewing the scoresheets & placements with the athletes this week in the gym. If parents have any questions, please feel free to listen to the discussion and ask the coaches or club owners. Also, as per our policies, please be very mindful of your conversations in the stands regarding placements and scores, especially through potential disappointment! We do this for the love of the sport – banners are awesome – but it’s not the real reason we do cheer.
For those of you who missed WHC on Global News last Friday, you can watch it here.
Up next: FLORIDA!
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! Please make all efforts to attend. We will be giving out your Florida tanks at this meeting.
Statements: Reminder that all fees are overdue at this time. I will be doing my best to send statements out by the end of this week. Please remember that they are accurate up to the end of March for payments (charges since March may be applied). Any questions, please let me know. If you do not receive a statement, it is usually due to the fact that you do not owe any money, but again, if you would like to see it, please email me Erica@westhalifaxcheer.com.
Devotion has an extra practice this Sunday, April 10 from 12 pm – 3 pm
PRECISION is attempting to schedule an extra practice this weekend. Stay tuned. If it is a go, your coaches will tell you in person and remind you through the FaceBook group, so look for that this week.

2016-2017 WHC CHEER SEASON: Registration now Open!
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 Sunday, May 15, 2016. Note that this was previously communicated as Saturday, May 14, 2016, however, many athletes could not attend this day. We realize that several athletes may not be able to make the new date either, so we will schedule a make-up for those athletes, but the primary focus will be on this session on the 15th.
The evaluation sessions for brand new WHC athletes will be held the weekend of May 28 and 29, 2016.
WHC Summer Camps are now Open for Registration!
We are going to be doing an expression of interest for staff when we return from Florida. Stay tuned for that, but the registration links are open! Please forward to anyone you think may be interested.
Erica, Jana, and Ashley
