What do I need to know before getting involved with Powered By Docstoc
					                      WELCOME!
We would like to officially welcome you to the Georgia Gemz All-Star cheerleading program at
Gymnastix Training Center. This handbook has been created to give you as much pertinent
information as possible in regards to the Georgia Gemz. Please read this packet in its entirety. All
documentation included in this handbook must be completed, initialed or signed, and brought with
you and your cheerleader to the All-Star Parent Workshop on Sunday, August 24, 2008. Please note
that the Medical Release form must be notarized. This handbook will be kept on file at the gym. You
should print a copy for yourself so you can reference this information throughout the season. You will
be held accountable for adhering to all policies in this packet.

Cheerleading is a difficult and demanding sport. It requires incredible dedication and commitment to
excel. The devotion and commitment learned in the gym is most often transferred to school and other
areas of life–where cheerleaders can almost always be found at the top of their class or excelling in
whatever they choose.
Before committing to a competitive cheerleading program the cheerleader and her family should
identify the goals, short term and long term that they have for her cheerleading career. These goals
should resemble the goals of the coaching staff in order to enhance the overall experience. The
coaching staff at GTC has the following philosophies for a cheerleader involved in our program:
   1) To help every athlete identify and reach her personal potential as a competitive cheerleader.
   2) To assist the process of how to set appropriate short and long term goals and work to achieve
      those goals. A short-term goal may include learning a specific skill by a given date. Long-term
      goals may include becoming a nationally competitive cheerleader, cheering at the collegiate
      level, or even acquiring a cheerleading scholarship.
   3) To teach each athlete to deal with any difficult situation or problem by accepting and
      conquering it.
   4) To encourage good sportsmanship, camaraderie, and respect for themselves and others.
   5) To facilitate the love and enjoyment of cheerleading.
It will take the cooperation of cheerleaders, parents, and coaches to implement these philosophies.
The coaching staff will do its best to provide your child with a positive learning experience as she
pursues her cheerleading career. The parent’s primary role is to support your child 100%. It is the job
of both the parents and coaches to keep the lines of communication open and to aid the cheerleaders
in doing so as well.

Here at GTC we are a family; as a part of the competitive squad, you are now a member of our family.
The ownership, management, coaching staff, parents, and cheerleaders must all work together to
make the overall cheerleading experience a positive one. We must work together as coaches, parents,
and athletes in order to reach these goals.

Sincerely,

David & Michelle Pomerantz
Owners

          ***ALL PRACTICE DAYS AND TIMES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE***

II. Financial considerations:
      Team Deposit - $145 JUNE Tuition (Due at the orientation meeting on Friday, April 25)
      Annual Membership Fee -            $75 for the 1st child
                                         $50 for the 2nd child
                                         $125 family maximum
      This fee is due June 1st or upon joining the squad, and it is renewed each season thereafter.
      Membership fees cover matriculation and insurance. Our insurance is a secondary provider. In
      the unlikely event that your child is injured during practice at Gymnastix Training Center, you
      would file with your personal insurance first, and Gymnastix secondary insurance would incur
      the balance. This secondary insurance claims are subject to a deductible paid by the customer.
      Monthly Tuition - $153 per month
      This fee is due the first of every month throughout the season with the final tuition payment
      due April 1, 2009. Tuition fees pay for a cheerleader’s space on a squad based upon an
      eleven-month period of time. Tuition does not pay for specific number of hours per week of
      practice. Monthly Tuition fees will only be prorated for a cheerleading joining the squad in the
      middle of the month. A 5% “Early Bird” discount is available for monthly tuition fees received
      in the office before the 1st of the month. If you have more than one student enrolled at
      Gymnastix Training Center, the lesser monthly tuition receives a 10% discount per month.
      A $15 late fee is assessed for tuition not paid by the 7th of each month.
      Squad Dues - $855.00 per year
      These dues cover the majority, but not all of the costs associated with competitive
      cheerleading such as, but not limited to, competition entry fees, coach’s competition expenses,
      squad competition uniforms, and choreography. Each individual family is responsible for this
      NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERRABLE amount in order for your cheerleader to
      compete. Three payment plan options are available. Payments are due as listed on the
      Georgia Gemz expense form with the only exception being for members who join after the
      season has begun. For such members, there will be a 30 day grace period to pay ALL the listed
      fees up to the date squad membership begins. Any remaining payments will be due as listed
      There are pre-scheduled fundraising activities to assist any interested cheerleader with
      offsetting these costs. Any time you participate in a Georgia Gemz sponsored fundraising
      event, the money earned will apply towards the participating family’s dues. Although it is

Parent Initials __________ Cheerleader Initials__________ Date:____/____/______
      Gymnastix Training Center’s intent to have available fundraising, there might be times when
      you will have to “write a check” to make your account current. There is a $15.00 late fee for
      any agreed upon payment not paid in full by the appropriate date. Any cheerleader’s account
      not current will not be permitted to participate in squad activities. These activities include, but
      are not limited to, practices, competitions, and other squad functions.
      Choreography fee - $200.00
      The choreography instruction fee is mandatory and is already included in the Squad Dues.
      Camp will take place September 13-14. This will be an overnight “Power Session” at the gym.
      Whether or not an athlete attends camp, this fee is still mandatory to pay for
      the athlete’s portion of the squad’s music and choreography.
      Uniforms - $230.00
      The complete cost of the competition uniform is included in the Squad Dues. The breakdown
      for the uniform is as listed below:
                  Skirt                   $37.00
                  Shell                   $46.00
                  Metallic Bloomers       $14.00
                  Warm-ups                $65.00
                  Competition Make-Up     $20.00
                  Competition Bow         $15.00
                  Team Practice Bag       $16.00
                  Shipping/Tax            $17.00

      Any practice apparel, whether optional or mandatory, is the responsibility of each individual
      family.
      Competitions
      Competition entry fees are already figured into the annual Squad Dues. Travel expenses to any
      competition are the sole responsibility of the individual family. If group travel is pre-arranged,
      the coaches and team representatives will strive to find the best deal possible for all travel
      arrangements and communicate the costs accordingly. All team members are required to stay
      with the team. If we stay on a competition package all team members must stay on that
      package. Parents, relatives, and friends are not required to stay on a package. For non-
      packaged competitions, rooms will be blocked together at the same hotel and the individual
      family will be responsible for payment upon arrival.

  Any of the times and fees noted in this packet may change at the discretion of
            Gymnastix Training Center’s ownership or management.
NOTE:
THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS FOR ANY FEES PAID TO ANYONE WHO WITHDRAWS FROM
THE SQUAD OR IS DISMISSED FROM THE SQUAD FOR ANY REASON. YOU WILL BE HELD
RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL DEBTS AND LEGAL FEES.

III. Rules and Policies:
   A. Dress Code
      Practice apparel must be worn to every practice. For competitions, all cheerleaders need to
      have the entire Georgia Gemz uniform including, but not limited to, the competition uniform,
      squad warm up suit, squad bloomers, squad shoes, appropriate hair products and make up,
      and an appropriate sports bra. These uniforms are to be worn for competitions only. You are
      responsible for permanently labeling each item with the cheerleader’s name.
   B. Attendance
      There are a set number of minimum practices per week. This minimum number is mandatory
      for all team members unless otherwise approved by the head coach. Please remember that
      cheerleading is a team sport and it affects the entire team when even one athlete
      is missing from practice. The cheerleader is required to call, before practice starts, every
      time she misses a workout. It is her practice, thus her responsibility. The only excuse is an
      emergency, illness, life event, or a mandatory school function. All other reasons must be
      approved by the head coach, ahead of time. If a team member has an unexcused absence the
      week before a competition, the child will not be allowed to compete unless approved by the
      head coach. There are no make-ups for missed practices. Excessive tardiness and/or
      absences will result in probation or dismissal from the squad.
   C. Athlete
      1. Practices will start on time, so it is expected that you be there ahead of time to mentally
         prepare. Practices must be attended in proper practice attire and good mental attitude.
         No one is allowed on any equipment before or after practice unless specified by a coach.
      2. All belongings are to be kept in the appropriate specified areas. Clothes belong in the
         cubbies. No food or drinks are allowed in the gym. The party room should be used to store
         all drinks and snacks.
      3. CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELVES!!! The coaches are here for cheerleading instruction,
         not maid service.
      4. All coaches and employees of GTC, other squad members, other athletes, and all parents
         should be shown equal and proper respect. (3 strike policy)
   D. Competitions
      1. Competitions are a privilege, not a given. Girls will compete only when they have shown
         they are ready - physically and mentally. If a cheerleader fails to show they are properly
         prepared, they will not be allowed to perform. The coaches will make this decision.
      2. During competition, good sportsmanship and positive attitudes are expected at all times.
         Failure to do so could result in removal from possible future competitions.
      3. All competitions are to be attended, period. If an athlete is injured and unable to
         compete, she is still required to attend the competition.
      4. During a competition, squad members are not to have contact with their parents without
         the coach’s approval first. No parents are allowed on the competition floor at any time.
      5. Squad members and parents are encouraged to cheer for their fellow teammates. They are
         to be courteous and orderly at all competitions.
      6. ALL Squad members are required to stay for the complete duration of the competition
         until dismissed by the head coach.
      7. The competition schedule is created by the coaching staff. The season consists of five
         competitions and it is expected that you will reserve these specific weekends for
         cheerleading only. Specific competition times will be released the week of the competition.
   E. Parents
      1. Gossip is not permitted in any shape or form.
      2. Parental support is important to all cheerleaders. This support should include positive
         comments on attitude, behavior, and work habits. A parent should not attempt to coach or
         “push” a child. Parents should encourage improvements by complimenting a good
         performance, good workout habits, and good behavior. A parent should never reprimand
         their child for a lesser performance. Not only is this degrading for your child’s self esteem,
         but detrimental to future performances. Remember, each child is trying her best.


Parent Initials __________ Cheerleader Initials__________ Date:____/____/______
      3. You are responsible for getting your child to and from practice on time. This punctuality
         is also mandatory for competitions.
      4. All financial obligations, must be kept current for the squad members to participate in
         squad activities. These activities include, but are not limited to, practices, competitions,
         squad functions.
      5. We need parents who volunteer for jobs to see them through. Please do not volunteer for
         something you do not feel you can handle.
      6. If you need to speak with a coach, either schedule an appointment or contact them during
         non-coaching hours. Please do not keep the coaches from doing their job of coaching.
      7. It is not recommended that parents stay in the gym during practice hours. The most
         effective practice occurs when the cheerleader can focus 100% on her practice.
      8. At no time are parents allowed on the gym floor unless approved by the coach.
   F. Information
      1. The head coach must be consulted before securing private lessons from other GTC staff
         members. In addition, private lessons are not allowed at other gym schools or with
         coaches other than GTC staff members.
      2. Please go to the proper source for information. Any time you have a problem, please
         communicate it to the head coach if it is cheer related or to the front office if it is tuition
         related. Your coach and office staff is the appropriate source, not other squad members.
   G. Body Care
      Cheerleading is a demanding, strenuous sport that requires good physical fitness. It is the
      responsibility of the individual cheerleader to maintain a high level of flexibility, strength, and
      endurance. Unfortunately, injuries happen in any athletic activity. The Georgia Gemz staff
      will take every precaution to limit these injuries. Should an injury occur refer to the following
      steps to aid in the recovery process. These steps are merely a guide and in no way a substitute
      for professional medical care. Speak with your head coach for a reference to an acceptable
      orthopedic doctor.

      SORE BODY PARTS - Check with your coach. Being a little sore is part of cheerleading, so get
      used to it. If the soreness is minor, it should go away with a short rest. If chronic (long term)
      or severe, a visit to an orthopedic doctor is a must.

      ICE - Use ice only in the following situations:
              1) Immediately following a strain or sprain to a muscle or joint.
              2) Following ligament, muscle, or tendon injuries.
              3) Following skin cuts or abrasions.
              4) After exercise involving a formerly injured area.
      When icing an injured area, use either ice packs with crushed ice, cold packs, or an ice massage
      (a paper cup filled with water is frozen to form an ice cylinder that can be massaged directly
      onto the skin’s surface). The optimum treatment time is fifteen minutes 3 to 4 times per day
      with maximum treatment being twenty minutes 3 to 4 times per day. To avoid surface tissue
      damage, place a towel between the ice and skin. Frostbite may result from excess icing. Watch
      for evidence of small white blotches appearing on the skin.

      HEAT - Use heat only in the following situations:
              1) 48-72 hours following ligament, muscle, and tendon injuries.
              2) Before exercise involving a formerly injured area.
              3) When experiencing joint or muscle pain.
      When heating an injured area, use moist hot packs, an electric heating pad, or reusable hot
      packs for at least ten minutes. The optimum time for heating is twenty minutes, but never
      exceed thirty minutes at one time. Heat should only be applied after swelling has stabilized
      and is starting to decrease. Always put a towel between the heat source and the injured area;
      never place heat directly on the skin. If the heat gets too intense, place extra layers of towels
      between the heat source and skin.

We, the staff of Gymnastix Training Center recognize our obligation to make our students and
their parents aware of the risks and the hazards associated with the sport of cheerleading. Students
may suffer injuries, possibly minor, serious or catastrophic in nature. Cheerleading can be dangerous

encourage their children to follow all the safety rules the coaches’ instructions. The Gymnastix
Training Center, its coaches and other staff members, will not accept responsibility for injuries
sustained by any student during the course of cheerleading instruction, or in the course of any

hospitalization, health, and accident insurance coverage that I consider adequate for both my child’s
protection and my own protection. I also understand that it is the parent’s responsibility to warn the
child about the dangers of cheerleading and injury. The parent should warn the child according to
what the parent feels is appropriate. Gymnastix Training Center will only warn the child through
“Safety Messages” and our teaching style and progressions.

been assured that all precautions have been and will be reasonably undertaken by Gymnastix Training Center to ensure my child’s safety. In
the event of an accident involving injury, I hereby waive and release Gymnastix Training Center from any and all liability while my child is
on the premises of the gymnastics facility, on a planned trip involving Gymnastix Training Center, or at a cheerleading competition involving
Gymnastix Training Center. I understand that it is my responsibility to provide for medical insurance. Gymnastix Training Center does not
provide you any insurance of any nature for your benefit.
           In lieu of a Doctor’s certificate, I hereby state that my child is in sound physical and mental health, and has no specific medical or

hereby agree to provide a three-month written notice prior to terminating team membership. In signing this contract, I agree to pay the
