Spirit Team 18-19 Update 6/3/18

Dear Parents, Athletes, and Representatives,

As a reminder, we will be having a “practice” skills test this Monday during practice. As discussed, this is NOT the final testing for Varsity/JV team placement. It is merely to assess each athletes strengths and suggested areas for improvement, as well as to alleviate stress over the actual upcoming skills testing. All Charger Girls have already been informed of which skill sets they will need to showcase. 

 

**NEXT Monday June 11th: Due to finals, we will have “open” practice from 3:30-5:30. Athletes have the options of working on skills of their choice, using this time as a study hall, or missing practice altogether if necessary.  

 

 

This Week: 

 

Practice as normally scheduled. 

 

***Returning Juniors Meeting: Monday 3-3:30 PM

 

 

***Boosters Meeting: Thursday June 7th at 7:00 PM

 

This Thursday after practice, we will be holding the first of many “Booster Meetings”. These are open to any and all parents only. While these are not mandatory, I kindly ask you to please be in attendance if you are on the respective committees. Thank you!

 

This meeting’s agenda will consist of:

– Beach Day Committee: Planning for Beach Day

– Pool Party Committee: Planning for our Spirit Team Pool Party 

– Possibility of Football/Spirit Team picnic

– Discussing practice schedule during the school year

– Discussing tumbling over summer

 

 

*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!

*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)

   – PLAIN white no-show socks
   – Black and white racer back sports bras (one of each color. Any brand,
