                               Expectations
    Are you willing to put in the extra time it takes to be a
      member of one of the BEST programs in the US?
Dedication, commitment and hard work are what we are expecting our team members to
bring with them to every practice. The KX Athletics staff trains to be the best in their field.
Each coach is capable of developing a champion out of every athlete that aspires to
become a champion. Sometimes this requires dedication above and beyond your regular
practice schedule. Throughout the season additional practice “boot camps” may be added
to ensure the confidence and preparation of each team before competition.

Students may miss other school activities or family functions to be a part of KX Athletics
All Stars. Notice for extra practices will be given with as much notice as possible to help
avoid these types of conflicts but we need you to be aware that they may occur.

     What can you expect in return from KX Athletics All Stars?

         The KX Athletics staff is 100% dedicated to the
                  development of your child.
We are interested in investing more than just one season with each athlete. We will teach
the progression of skills necessary to continue through each level that is within reach for
each child. Our training style is technical. We want the athletes to be able to execute each
skill with correct technique before moving on. Strength and confidence begin to grow
with this style of teaching. It does however require patience and commitment on the part
of the athlete and parent. Every athlete has their own pace at which they progress and the
KX Athletics staff is dedicated to their individual progress as well as the overall success of
each team. It is our mission to provide a positive environment where athletes are learning
and improving with each season. Creating winning routines is a process, ever changing
and evolving into an award winning and nationally recognized style known as KX Athletics
All Stars.




                                                                           Expectations
                                                                           Expectations
                  Team Development
                   Building POWERFUL CHAMPIONS!

Phase I -Tryouts
Phase II – Advanced Assessment of Skills
Phase III – Team Placement
Phase IV – Re-evaluation of Team Needs

During the 2012-2013 season, the coaches will spend many hours working towards
building the strongest teams possible. When each individual part (flyer, base, back spot)
is thoughtfully put together the result is a high performance team called KX Athletics All
Stars. Team placement is not guaranteed based on request, carpool, practice availability,
or previous team assignments.

2012-2013 Full Year Team Try-Outs held in May 2012! You can print and fill out your try-
out packet information from our website www.kxathletics.com.

Phase I
Tryouts – All athletes (new and returning) attend an age breakout session to be evaluated.
Each athlete has the opportunity to show her skills in the following areas: Jumps, Motions,
Stunts, Dance and Tumbling. At that time the staff is able to give skills class assignments
to each athlete to begin our Summer Session and continue evaluations of skills and team
needs. The KX Athletics staff has the knowledge and experience to build successful teams
based on the competitive scoring systems that need to be met.

Phase II (Early June)
Skills Classes – The skills classes assigned for the first 2 weeks of June allow for dynamics
to be assessed by coaches prior to designating and leveling teams appropriately. We begin
working on team skills and will try different combinations of athletes together and get a
better assessment of their potential to achieve new tumble skills in order to create the
best TEAM. It is during this time that stunt groups are evaluated by coaches. Since KX is
dedicated to successful teams at every level and division, there are no guarantees of
placement on a certain level of team at this time. We are committed to being able to put
teams on the floor that have the ability to maximize the score sheets as a whole, not just
based on what skills only a portion of the athletes possess.
Example: An athlete with both base and flyer potential and has their roundoff handspring
tuck could be placed on a level 2 team to develop flying skills further OR placed on a level
3 team as a base who is contributing a tuck to the team tumbling.
        Team Development (cont.)
Phase III(Mid-June)
Team Placement –Athletes are placed on their team and begin working towards solid
stunt groups that will be utilized in the choreography of the routine. The weekly practice
schedules will be solidified at this time for the remainder of the season. There is still
potential for team placement movement during this phase based on team need. Most
changes will occur before routine choreography begins.

Phase IV – Revision to team placement after early preseason are usually minimal and
athletes are informed individually if movement deemed necessary.

Team development can be stressful for athletes. The KX Athletics staff is dedicated to
doing what is best for a team to ensure a successful season. With our belief of the
Parent/Coach relationship that is needed, we ask that parents help their daughters
through these phases with the assurance that they will be placed on a strong and
successful team that is the best fit for her to showcase her skills.

Example: A “flyer” who is placed on a team for her flying skills may possess higher level or
lower level tumbling skills than the team level but is needed for her flying skills for a
particular stunt group that will benefit the team.

Example: A “base” who is needed for strength in a stunt group may or may not possess
the tumbling skills of the team level but is needed for her experience in stunting for a
particular stunt group.


All of these considerations are with the mission of creating a strong TEAM. In the event an
athlete is working higher level tumble skills than her team level, she will still have the
opportunity to practice those skills during her team’s tumbling sessions. In the event an
athlete is working lower level tumble skills than her team level, she will have the ability to
do modified drills to ensure her safe progression.

                                                                         Team
                                                                      Development
                                                                      Development
               Attendance Policy
KX Athletics is successful because of our MANDATORY
                   attendance policy.

 Excused absences include: illness with fever and school event that earns a
  grade.
 Other sports or work that conflicts with KX practices are NOT excused. If
  a conflict with an outside sport arises, athletes and parents must make
  arrangements for the athlete to attend KX practice.
 Absences must be reported to your coach prior to missing practice. If you
  do not reach the team coach, please know that leaving a
  message/text/email does not mean the absence is excused.
 School Spring Breaks will not be honored as we have too many school
  schedules to contend with. We ask families to plan their vacation
  schedules around the competitive season (Dec-May) and the gym closing
  dates unless a weekend has solidly been cleared by KXA as “open”.
 KXA Full Year teams train 12 months of the year. 3 Absences max during
  June, July, August. 3 Absences max from September through May. The
  gym is closed on designated weeks as per the KXA member Calendar.
 Summer attendance is VERY important to the development of the team
  and tumbling progression. Please note that we expect team members to
  be at the majority of the summer practices however we understand this is
  prime vacation time.
 Athletes must be on time to practice. Continual tardiness will be grounds
  for disciplinary action or dismissal.
 Two unexcused absences will warrant disciplinary action, a third will be
  grounds for dismissal.
 If you are injured or sick, you must still attend practice. You will not be
  required to fully participate. You will be required to watch any changes
  that directly affect you. Please note that in the event of athlete injury,
  there are no tuition credits for the time the athlete is recovering.
 All competitions are mandatory.
                                                     Attendance Policy
                                                     Attendance Policy
          Attendance Policy cont.
 If an athlete is injured and needs to be excused from full participation, a
  doctor’s note is required to secure her placement on the team.
 In the event an athlete is injured or ill but has not been to a doctor,
  parents must speak to the team coaches directly to make them aware of
  the circumstances and to avoid any miscommunications between the
  athlete and coaches. Please understand that in the event that an athlete is
  not able to practice prior to a competition, it is at the coach’s discretion to
  allow her to compete or to arrange a “fill in” for the event.




    Unique only to KX Athletics
                               Getting Involved!

 Jr. Staff Program – is a volunteer program offered to team members at KX Athletics.
  “Jr. Staff” is selected on their leadership skills, ability to teach and spot, availability,
  years at the gym (or in all star cheer) and overall dedication. These team members
  work with our younger teams. They learn how to coach and increase overall
  program bonding.

 Gym Wide Service Projects – Each year the KX Athletes are encouraged to get
  involved with the community or even globally to reach out to others in need. We are
  not just training cheerleaders, we are training LEADERS. We feel that teaching
  children to reach out to others and see beyond themselves is so important. In past
  seasons KX has: collected water and baby items for families in need, participated in
  various “walks for cures”, collected food for a food bank to name a few. All of these
  events have proven to be amazing events of generosity from our families to those
  suffering and in need.

this to other level teams in the future.

Athlete Requirements
This team will be built on the same criteria as all other KXA teams, age, experience, team need (ie. flyer,

In addition we are looking for athletes who:
*Maintain academics in school

decision is final regarding ability to compete.
*Athlete must be able to attend all international team practices
  Financial Contract Explanation
 There are expenses that are paid by KX Athletics in advance for each athlete. If you
 choose to leave the program before your annual tuition is satisfied either for personal
 reasons, job transfer, moving to a new area – we require a signed contract that each
family agrees to pay a buy-out cost that will ensure that KX Athletics is refunded for the
 expenses and competition registrations that are paid in advance. This contract must
   be signed and turned in prior to your athlete participating in classes. This is not to
   penalize families if they decide KXA is not a good fit for their family, but to recoup
expenses that we pay for in advance and do not receive full payback until the end of 11
   months payments for families who choose the monthly payment plan option. This
   member contract is included with this informational handbook for your review and
completion. The buy-out does not apply if your tuition is paid in full however all tuitions
 paid are non-refundable. The positivity that is founded in KXA is created by the belief
  that families should be happy to participate or happy to not participate, however it is
    not an option to be unhappy with the offerings of KXA and stay in the program.
