Congratulations on your daughter being conditionally chosen to be a part of the 2012 Fall
Cheerleading Squad! Please read the following notice as well as the attached “demerit
Your daughter’s position on the squad is official when I receive the demerit form signed
by parent and cheerleader and an email (to email@example.com) accepting
the position with an up-to-date email for both cheerleader and parent(s). Most
communication will be done via email; it is the parent/cheerleader’s responsibility to
check their accounts frequently.
I look forward to meeting/seeing you and working with your daughter! Our Parent
Meeting is scheduled for Monday, June 4th.

1. Both games and practices are mandatory. The only excuse is a funeral or
illness. Please try to plan doctor’s visits, work schedules, vacations, and other
events/obligations around the cheerleading schedule. Also, plan to attend all
fundraisers to benefit the squad (parents and cheerleaders are asked to
2. Practice will be held approx 3 times weekly (projected Mon-Wed until 6pm with
an additional Varsity practice on Thurs). Finalized schedule will be released in
3. Uniforms are the property of the school. Please encourage and assist your
daughter in keeping them in the best condition possible. Cheerleaders are not to

4. Summer conditioning (Tues 5:30-7:30PM, Thurs 8-10AM) and camp (Ocean
City, Aug 6-9th) is a crucial experience for all cheerleaders to bond and build
skills that are needed for the upcoming season. Please plan so your child is able
(both financially and physically) to attend.
5. Disrespect/insubordination will not be tolerated in my program. This could
result in suspension from a game and/or removal from squad- at Miss Mitchell’s
and the coaching staff’s discretion.
6. Unfortunately, cyber and verbal bullying have increased among teenagers along
with inappropriate behaviors online. Let it be clear that it is a privilege for
your child to be a part of HHS Cheer. If we have reason to believe your child
has bullied another cheerleader or student in any environment, your child will be
removed from the squad. Miss Mitchell and her coaching staff hold the right to
refuse participation to any cheerleader who does not meet the moral and
behavioral guidelines we set in any environment.
7. Cheerleaders will be required to attend study hall for the fall season immediately
following school before practice begins. Students will be excused to work with
teachers at that time.
Please note that Miss Mitchell and the other coaches reserve the right to change
or adapt these rules/regulations at their discretion at any time. A breech in
these guidelines can result in demerits and/or suspension and/or removal from
