All-star uniforms have all arrived and will be handed out this week.  Prep uniforms should arrive today or tomorrow as per the email sent yesterday to all prep teams.

There are no practices, classes, or open gyms at Perfect Storm on December 7, 8, or 9.  (Exception: Friday Dec 7 both Intensity and Whirlwind will practice.)

Make Up
We have makeup kits for sale at the gym for $30 plus GST.  Make up is required for Inspire on December 8th.  Not sure how to do makeup or hair for Inspire?  Check out our youtube tutorial.

Jewelry
All jewelry must be removed before practices and performances.  This includes all piercings.  Jewelry cannot be taped over; it must be removed.

Winter Rec Cheer
Our winter rec cheer session is open for registration!  We are offering rec teams during the week (they run for 9-11 weeks) as well as rec classes on Saturdays.  Teams will learn a routine and do a performance while classes will be skill based and run for 5 weeks.

Open Gym this week
Thursday 8pm-10pm only.  There is no Friday or Sunday open gym.

Stocking for WINGS
The stockings have all been signed out (thank you!) and many have already been returned filled with goodies.  Tuesday, December 11 is the last day to return stockings.  They can be filled with things like candy, socks, toiletries, small toys, etc.  Items not allowed include candles, alcohol, sharp objects, toy weapons.  Max value of stockings should be $25.

Christmas Break
The last day of regular cheer & tumbling classes is Thursday, December 20.  There will be no regular classes between Dec 21 and Jan 3.  We are back to regular programming on Friday, January 4.
Christmas break tumbling clinic details will be out this week.

Winter Tumbling
Winter tumbling runs from January 4 to March 21.  There are no tumbling classes in April but there are semi-private lessons available. Weekend tumbling classes (Fri, Sat, and Sun) only pay for January & February due to cancelled classes for competitions.

If you want to remain in the same tumbling class as you were in for the fall session, you do not need to do anything.  The only exception to this is the Cyclones classes that were emailed last week.  Rec tumbling does not carry over into the winter session so if you are in a rec tumbling class, your tumbling class ends the week of Dec 17.

If you are in prep/are not required to take tumbling and no longer want to be in a tumbling class, please email[email protected] and let us know.

If you would like to switch to or continue to take semi-private lessons, please read the following:

Between December 5 and December 9, send an email to [email protected] with the following information:
1. Athlete name
2. Package you would like to book (Perfection is 20 lessons, Passion is 15 and Pride is 10.  All lessons are 30 minutes.
3. The days, times, and coach(es) you would like to book with.  Please refer to the schedule before booking lessons. (Link: Semi-Private Schedule).  We are just putting the final touches on the schedule.  It will be completely updated by 3pm on Tuesday, Dec 4. Trying to book with coaches that are not on the schedule during the requested times will bump you to the back of the booking order. Remember that there are many weekends where there are no lessons available due to competitions.  Athletes who were in a regular semi-private lesson for the fall session will get first priority with the same coach at the same time as long as the email request is received by midnight on December 9.  Anything received after that will be booked in the order in which it was received.
4.  Once your lessons have been booked, you will receive an email asking you to check the schedule to ensure your bookings are ok. We will not be emailing each athlete with all of their specific times. Please note that due to the Inspire competition on December 8, no lessons will be put into the system until Monday, December 10.

Please remember that package lessons cannot be changed once they are booked.  If you are unable to attend a booked lesson, you may try to sell your lesson to another athlete.  Non-package lessons can be changed with at least 48 hours notice.  Non-package bookings for winter lessons will begin on December 13, 2018.
