Hi WHC Families,


We can’t believe how fast the summer is going! We all hope you’re enjoying cheer so far this year!  A few housekeeping items and reminders:

During the summer our facility is very warm; we do our best to cool temperatures by opening the garage doors and using circulating fans.  Please ensure your West Halifax Cheer athlete is wearing breathable clothing during practice and has water for hydration.  To note, our vending machine has been removed from the kitchen due to low sales, however it will be replaced later in the summer containing only drinks.  As a reminder, we do have Brita water in the fridge to refill your water bottles.  Please remember to fill this up if it’s getting low.

Returnables files: Your team managers are working hard to collect the WHC Returnables files (packages) from you. For your convenience, we’ve attached it to this email. Please fill this out and ensure it gets to your Team Managers ASAP.


Fees: The first fee installments are now due. For your convenience, we’ve attached a copy of the fee structure to this email. Payment can be made in the gym, online (www.westhalifaxcheer.com – click “make a payment“), or via etransfer to erica@westhalifaxcheer.com (please use password: orange).


Parent Portal: As a reminder, a copy of our information package, returnables files, as well as the fee due dates can be found on our website if you click on Parent Portal. Password: westhalilife (i.e. west hali life with no spaces).


Facebook Groups: Each team has a Facebook group. We also have a main “West Halifax Cheer” group that is for all athletes, coaches, families, and staff.  This one can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/52440255018/.  In addition, we have a ‘West Halifax Cheer Mom & Dad’s’ Facebook group, specifically for parents. We STRONGLY encourage you to join the Facebook groups, as it is used as a frequent tool for communication in our organization.


Please comment in the main group if you need to be added to individual team groups. The coach or Team Manager will add you. You may have to become a Facebook “friend” to a coach or manager in order to be added to the group.


Natal Day Weekend – CANCELLATIONS: Please note that we are canceling Love & Charm practice on Monday, August 7, 2017 since it is a holiday. Their practice make-up times will be:

  • LOVE: Wednesday, August 9from 8:15-9:30 pm
  • CHARM: Wednesday, August 9from 7-8:15 pm

The calendar on our site has been updated to reflect this, and we will remind you again closer to that weekend.


Absences: Please remember to email staff@westhalifaxcheer.com to report absences. This email address is accessed by all coaches, so they will all receive these emails. You can also reach them individually. The coaches specific email addresses are also found on the website.


WHC Summer Camp is still accepting registrations for our two August Camps!! https://westhalifaxcheer.com/summer-camps/


That’s all, have a great week!
