CHEERLEADING GUIDELINES
KAT Raiders Cheerleading
​​1. Athletes are expected to arrive ON TIME ( 10 minutes prior) to the start of practice time. Parents are            expected to be at the practice location 15 minutes before the end of practice so we can hand out                  material and give updates. 

2. Athletes must wear practice uniform: Black shorts, black t-shirt, socks and sneakers. Hair must be
    pulled back. Cheer bows are encouraged!

3. Athletes must bring enough water for practice. No food is allowed during practice.

4. Garbage and water bottles must be cleaned up before athletes can be released from practice.

5. Athletes must have permission to be released from practice by their coach. Failure to receive 
    permission will result in removal from team. This is to ensure your child's safety. 

6. Parents may watch practices so long as they are at a distance where the athletes will not be distracted.      Please do not give instructions or advice to your children during practice and please allow your coaches      to coach. 

7. All parents are expected to use the BAND app for all communication with each other and coaches. This      is where all information will be shared and posted. If there is an issue please contact your cheer                  commissioner or coach.
