Attendance: 
*Vacations are an exception, as this will be during summer months. Please discuss with your child's Coach prior to the vacation to inform them of the absence.*  Since there are vacations that do conflict with our practicing schedules, the attendance policy will be followed the week of our FIRST game.  You still must inform your coaches prior to a vacation.  

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.
