Spirit Team 18-19 Update 5/27/18

Dear Parents, Athletes, and Representatives,

As a reminder, the Spirit Team will not have practice on Memorial Day (5/28). HOWEVER, throughout the year we will frequently use “days off” as an opportunity to hold, if not extend, practice. In order to get the results we desire, especially nearing performances and competitions, we must put in this extra time and effort! Thank you in advance for your commitment!

***Thursday 5/31: due to the circumstances, practice will be held from 3:30-6:00. (Song, please go to your regularly scheduled class.)
Afterwards, the seniors will facilitate individual “team builders” for each of their families. All Charger Girls have been notified by the senior in her family of the details.

**Thank you to the clothing committee for setting up and running a successful fitting, and special Thank You to our chairperson, Laura Koenig, for all of your work! All of your help is so very appreciated!

**NEW: Save the Date!! Our Annual Spirit Team Pool Party will be held on August 18th, from 12-3pm. More details to come!

*REMINDERS*

*All athletes must complete a physical in order to participate. All
physicals must be completed AFTER May 15th (this is a new, school mandated
policy), and before the end of the school year. Please see the Agoura
Athletics website for more information.

*All new (and returning) Charger Girls are responsible for learning all
football cheers over summer. To assist with instruction, DVDs of the cheers
have been made available to be sold for $5. Please bring your $5 to
purchase your DVD as soon as possible, since learning and perfecting every
cheer will take quite some time!

*If you and/or your athlete have not been added to your respective “Band”
group, please email me right away.

*Going forward, if your athlete will be absent from any practice and/or
team event, please notify Coach Costas via email asap. As a reminder, full
attendance is crucial to ensuring our successes, both individually and as a
team!

*PLEASE begin purchasing your required, independently purchased clothing
items if you have not already done so. This includes:

– Black FULL length leggings (any brand, PLAIN black)
– Black Nike pro shorts (with white writing/logo only)
