What's New with our Teams?

Varsity News...

~Friday 8/28 is our first football game!  Cheerleaders need to be at the field no later than 6:30pm to warm up.  Remember to include in your game bag a water bottle, warm ups, poncho, poms, light snack, and anything else you may need.

 

~Bus times have been added to the Upcoming Events schedule.  We have to share a bus with JV, so our bus times are earlier than last year.

 

~We now practice in the Commons from 3:45-5:45.  Cheerleaders are expected to be there by 3:30 to set up mats.  Please remember that we END practice at 5:45, not leave at 5:45.  We begin putting away the mats and changing shoes and clothing, so that can take an extra 10 mins provided how quickly everyone moves!  

 

~Always bring your cheer shoes and running shoes to practice, along with a water bottle, ankle weights, and something to write with (you never know when you'll need it).

 

~Check the Varsity Upcoming Events tab for all of our happenings!  If you want anything added to it (like team bonding), please email Coach with the details.

SLEEP...Did you know that if you don't get sufficient sleep (7-8 hours) your entire body is affected by it?  According to an article posted by the Mayo Clinic, getting enough  sleep is associated with healthier body weight, greater motivation, and smarter food choices.  It also helps our brains operate better, facilitating learning, stress management, problem solving, and attention.

  The article suggests having some "bedtime strategies" like guided relaxation, deep breathing, visualization, progressive muscle relaxation, and other calm inducing tactics.

  Visualization we already practice in regard to our performances, but for sleep you picture a peaceful, calming place, like relaxing by the ocean where you can hear the crashing waves and other soothing sounds.

  Progressive muscle relaxation we have also done in practice.  Lay down with eyes closed and begin squeezing the muscles in your toes and feet, slowly moving up the body until everything is tense and tight, then from head to feet slowly begin releasing the muscles to a relaxed state.

  Late night reading and NO ELECTRONICS will also help send you to dreamland; the light from cell phones, computers, or tv's stimulates your brain, keeping you in an awakened state and not allowing relaxation to set in as you prepare for sleep.
