ATTENDANCE: We are now half way through the season and getting closer to competition and EVERY SINGLE practice COUNTS! It is VERY important to have the girls be at practice! If you are unable to attend practice because you are sick, we will need a doctor's note to excuse the absence. Excessive absences brings the entire team down when one girl does not know the dance because she has not been attending practice, as the saying goes.. we are only as strong as our weakest link!
Please refer to the absence policy in our handbook. Two (2) absences from practice in one (1) week will result in your child not cheering or performing at the next Saturday game. Excessive absences could warrant dismissal without refund at the discretion of the Director. Please contact the director or assistant director if your child is not able to attend before the start of practice. An excused absence is a medical issue for which you have a doctor’s note, an illness for which school was missed the day of practice, fever, vomiting, or other contagious illness at the time of practice. An absence for any other reason must be discussed with the directors and will be decided on an individual basis. A no call/no show will result in a demerit. Two (2) unexcused absences from Saturday games may result in being expelled from the Drill Team. This is an AAYFDT organization rule. It is mandatory that you be on time to games. The team is depending on each and every girl. Tardiness to a game may result in the dancer sitting out of the first performance.
As Always, please let me know if you have any questions!
