West Allegheny Youth Football and Cheer
TEAMWORK: Alone we can do so little, TOGETHER we can do so much.
Often people forget that cheer is a team sport. These athletes do not function as individuals but as a team. From cheers, to choreography, and especially stunting they work together like a well-oiled machine, like any other team sport. So the participation level of every athlete affects the team as a whole. Below are the attendance expectations for the WAYFC cheerleaders. We understand that vacations and illness occur, and do not expect perfect attendance. However, we do expect regular attendance and a strong commitment. Please review the expectations to be sure your athlete can make the commitment. Consequences for poor attendance are the Head Coaches discretion.
- Practices are mandatory, as 1 athlete missing can limit the extent of material covered and restrict other athletes practice. Vacations and illnesses are excused absences (for example, we typically have 4 athletes per stunt group. If 1 of them is missing the other 3 cannot practice their stunt.)
- All games are mandatory. We cannot have athletes that are only willing to show up to home games. Every game matters and every girl should be there.
- Pre-game warm ups are mandatory. Coaches use this time to make any final adjustments to routines due to last minute absences. If your athlete is not there to warm up and learn adjustments they may have to sit out of the half time routine.
