October 3, 2017

Hello everyone!

 

For the week of October 2, 2017, practices are open for parent/spectator viewing.

 

Seniors Traveling in 2018: For everyone who is a senior athlete, please fill out the following survey (if you have not done so already): https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JJ66T99 – You have until the end of this week to fill it out.

 

Thanksgiving: Practices are canceled on Sunday, October 8 due to Thanksgiving, however, we will still have practices on Monday, October 9 for Love.

 

Run for the Cure: Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Run for the Cure runners and also, organizing and running their warm up! Thanks to Patrick for organizing. Much appreciated!!  Please email any pictures to jana@westhalifaxhceer.com so that we can showcase our amazing athletes on social media.

 

Choreography: 

Note that Crushchoreography date has been changed from November 18 at 5-7:30 pm, to November 25, 2017 from 12-2:30 pm. This is due to the Parade of Lights being hosted on November 18, 2017 and coach’s availability.

Brave’s first choreography time may change, but will be staying on October 14, due to coach work schedule conflicts. The official date/time will be known by the end of this week.

 

***There are no choreography dates this weekend due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

 

For a full list of all Choreography dates, check out the link on our website.

 

Uniforms: Our new uniform prototype is on its way…!!  We are beyond excited!!! Once we are satisfied with the design, your Team Managers will be organizing the sizing schedule for all our athletes.  We will be hosting a fun debut of our Season 10 uniforms.. stay tuned for more information!

***Please note that the cost of the uniform is not included in the regular fees. The exact uniform price is still being worked out and you will be notified once this is finalized.

 

Cleanliness in the Kitchen & Gym:  Please respect our home and be sure to clean up after yourselves. We have noticed that many athletes and parents are having their lunches/supper in the kitchen area. This is completely fine, however please be sure to clean up any mess you may make, or that your children make.  Team Managers are responsible to check for cleanliness of kitchen and warm up areas following team practices to ensure space is clear for the next group of athletes coming in.

 

Scent Aware: Please be aware that some of our athletes and families are scent sensitive. While we are not a “Scent Free” facility, please be aware that some of your teammates or coaches may have sensitivities. Scented body spray should not be applied in the gym area. Please step outside the garage doors to apply if desired during a water break. Also, it is an HRM by-law that smoking is not allowed within 25 feet of the building, and especially is not acceptable at the entrances to the gym.

 

Unsupervised Children: Families are reminded that you are not expected to be in the gym more than 15 minutes before and after your practices.  Children who are not currently attending a cheer practice, or tumbling private should be directly supervised by a parent/guardian or designated adult.

Nfinity: Sarah (sarah@nfinity.com), a rep from Nfinity (cheer shoe supplier for newbies), is heading to the Orange Dome on Sunday, October 15th from 3 – 5 pm, to size and sell shoes, bags and apparel…. just in time for Christmas!!!

For some background, Nfinity shoes are the cadillac of cheer shoes and range in price from $89.99-$159.99. Bags are priced the same way. WHC only requires athletes to wear white sneaks, so these are more of a ‘want’ for your athlete rather than a ‘need’.  To note, Artistic Sole & Aqua Dome have sold these in the past; however they will no longer be carrying Nfinity cheer shoes (once their stock is gone) due to the cost of importing them to Canada. Therefore, having Nfinity come to our gym is a fantastic opportunity to get Nfinity items directly from the supplier.  That being said, there is a minimum order requirement, and if that is not met, the order may not get placed or we may not get delivery in a timely fashion.  We have paired up with Extreme and ICE to help meet this minimum requirement ($5,000).

Sun. Oct 15th
Thanks everyone, hope you all have a great week, and Thanksgiving weekend!!
