Join the TEAM TODAY!
Cheerleading is all about working together as one cohesive unit. When you join a cheerleading team you are signing up to be apart of a new family; a family who will support both your athletic & personal goals. If you have questions please contact us! We look forward to meeting you on the mats!
CHANGE OF CLASSES: Students must contact the Director of the gym in writing to request a change of classes. Please note that students may not be able to change if the class size is full.
CLASS SIZE/WAITING LISTS: Class sizes are limited to provide an excellent student-teacher ratio, helping to ensure student feedback and a high standard of cheer education. Each year, we present a schedule that will meet the needs of our new and returning students. If a class is full, you can be put on a wait list. Brantford Cheer also reserves the right to cancel any class that has enrollment of five or fewer students.
CLASS CANCELLATIONS: Every attempt will be made to contact each student if we cancel a class due to weather or other extenuating circumstances. In the event that a class is cancelled due to inclement weather, we will attempt to contact each athlete affected by the cancellation. We will send a cancellation message via email & parent portal.
ATTITUDE: Brantford Cheer has the basic expectation that students treat each other, their teachers, the faculty and staff, and other adults with kindness and respect. Whether students attend our programs to develop self-esteem, get their exercise, or train for a career in the arts, a professional and polite attitude is necessary at all times. If problems persist, parents will be contacted. Attitude is a little thing that makes a BIG difference!
TIMELINESS: Try to arrive on time! Students should arrive 15 minutes before their class starts so they have ample time to use the washroom, and get ready prior to the class starting. When children arrive late, they may feel uncomfortable and not want to participate, which is also disruptive to the class. When students miss the beginning of a class, they miss out on warming up their bodies properly. Part of learning to dance is learning self-discipline and this begins with arriving to class on time and being prepared for the lesson. To avoid injury, students who are 15 minutes late or more will not be permitted to participate in the class; they will be asked to observe. Please make sure your little one goes to the bathroom!
ILLNESS/INJURY: If students are mildly ill or have an injury, they will be expected to attend, as it is extremely valuable to come to dance class and WATCH! (No contagious diseases please!) Cheer is learned through visual, auditory and kinesthetic information, so students who watch class still use their eyes and ears to learn cheer! By observing classes, they won’t have missed any information or be behind in their learning. If a student misses a class, they are expected to catch up on class material that they missed with friends prior to the next class. Students are responsible for knowing their class material.
HAIR: Hair must be properly groomed for class. Hair should be neatly pulled off the face in a ponytail or bun for classes.
ENTRANCE/SHOE REMOVAL: At both entrances, ALL shoes must be removed and placed on the mats provided. This will keep walkways clear, floors cleaner, and is friendlier on our bare-footed dancers!
NO NUTS FACILITY: Brantford Cheer has students enrolled who have life-threatening allergic reactions to peanuts and all other nutmeats. In order to create a safe environment for everyone, we have declared our studio a No Nuts Facility.
FOOD & DRINK: No food or drink is allowed in the gym (unless the dancer is diabetic). Only water bottles are permitted! Gum is not allowed. Garbage must be placed in the proper receptacles. We like to keep the studio looking clean and hope that you will too!
