Spirit Team 18/19 Update 5/6/17

Dear Parents, Athletes, and Representatives,

A big ‘kudos’ to the many of you who have committed to our extra skills classes. Your instructors have given me positive feedback, and I am very glad to hear of your efforts toward improving your skills!
Those of you who have not yet signed up, please consider doing so!

**For the next few weeks, the Spirit Team will not be able to practice inside the G building, as it is closed for testing. As a result, the team will practice in the Gym on Mondays, and on the tennis courts on Thursdays. Please drop your Charger Girl off in front of the gym until further notice. Thank you!

**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!

**As a reminder, 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.

Here is the links for the sign-up genius for the Exer appointments (offered Saturday, May 19, and Saturday, June 2 at Exer in Calabasas): <https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0f44a4ae2ea1f85-sports1>

Here is the link for the required paperwork (for those who chose to have their physical completed by their physician):
