In case you haven’t heard the news, our competition team took 1st place in the Youth Division and won the coveted Spirit Award on Saturday December 17 at the Alexandria Holiday Invitational Competition!!
Words cannot express the pure joy and happiness felt by all of us in attendance, coaches, parents, and cheerleaders!!
The girls had to overcome many obstacles to stay focused and bring home the win! Today was the first time that all the girls were present at the same time to perform the routine! This was done during our warm up time. Our warm ups was focused on perfecting minor inconsistencies and also included albuterol inhaler for me and one of our cheerleaders who experienced a minor asthma attack; one cheerleader rolled her ankle when we took advantage of an outdoor soccer field to catch extra practice time; another cheerleader lost a tooth just as we were going to perform; and the DJs fickle CD player would not play our CD but fortunately we had our music electronically on my DROID!! In spite of it all, the girls happily cheered on their competitors, danced to the groovy DJ tunes and displayed the best spirit ever which generated the Spirit Award chosen by the competition directors and volunteers! RYC rocked the house today!!
Thank you for believing in our program and contributing to its success!!
See you at the banquet on January 13!
Happy Holidays to you and your family and God Bless you all.
The coaches have been concerned about the number of absences without prior notice. Please understand that although we didn’t address unexcused absences in our handbook, we have set a policy which must be abided by until the end of the season.
Beginning week of September 27, 2011, two or more unexcused absences will constitute dismissal from the program. An unexcused absence is defined as when a cheerleader misses practice and/or game without prior notification to the coach. Basically, if you do not show up for practice or a game without informing the coach, your absence will be unexcused. If this situation occurs twice, we will consider you have decided not to participate in the program and will ask that you return the uniforms issued to your cheerleader.
If cheerleader has an unexcused absence from practice, she must come to the game and she will have to sit out the first half of the game and will be able to join the team after their half-time performance.
This policy is in place for the cheerleaders to understand they have a team that relies on their presence and that they have made a commitment to their team, a commitment which needs to be honored. Homework, being tired, other activities should not be reasons to miss practices/games. Staying home sick from school or having a fever, vomiting, etc. are valid reasons for being absent.
Please, please communicate with your coach if an emergency arises which will prevent you from attending practice or a game. If you have not done so already, please read and sign the RYC Parent handbook and give the signed pledge sheet to your coach or Lisa Mikanda.
Due to the number of cheerleaders with nut allergies, RYC has a no nuts policy throughout the season. Please provide snacks or food which are nut free and healthy. This applies to any event with food.
Practices will be held when there is a chance for rain. If it is raining at 6:00 PM, a decision will be made to continue with practice based on the duration of the rain and whether or not lightning is in the area. If lightning is in the area, practice will be canceled immediately. Please make sure you are always available to pick up your child in case of any emergency situation. Please make sure we have a cell phone number on file and indicate whether or not you would like to receive text messages for weather updates.
