The Weather Forecast – Perfect Storm’s Weekly Newsletter

June 3, 2019

Season 10 officially starts today!
We are so excited to kick of our 10th season.  Our staff spent this past weekend together learning and being inspired by amazing professionals and experts.  Our first all-star practices start tonight and continue all week.  Remember that from June through August we only practice Monday through Thursday nights.  There are no weekend practices.  Prep cheer will start in September.

Athletes need to wear shorts and a t-shirt or tank top and cheer shoes.  Long hair must be tied back and all jewellery must be removed.  Any recently pierced ears must be taped.  We allow taping until team camps in August so if you are considering a new piercing, please do it now as after summer all piercings must be removed. Athletes will be sized for practice gear right away.  Once it is received, it will become mandatory to wear each week.

In addition to e-mail, we use Facebook as a means of communication with our families.  Every team has their own page which you should have already received a link for. We also have the following:
Storm Chasers – keep up to date on the latest info, merch, photos, etc.
Fundraising – for those interesting in using fundraising to offset costs
Used Clothing – to buy or sell uniforms, shoes, team gear.
These groups are for Perfect Storm families only.
