Attendance: 
*Vacations are an exception, as this will be during summer months.

In order to provide the safest environment for our cheerleaders, it is imperative that a strict attendance policy is as follows:

*This attendance policy applies to practices and games* If your child misses the practice before a game, they will not be able to participate in the half time routine. 

• 1st absence - no consequence
• 2nd absence - written warning
• 3rd absence - loss of mounting privileges
• 4th absence - turn in uniform

Additionally, the squad mothers will be taking attendance during each practice and game. Parents/guardians will be responsible for signing their child in and out at the beginning of every practice and will not be released without a parent or guardian signing them out.
