Christmas is quickly approaching and we only have a few weeks left of term! How has that happened?!
We have been incredibly impressed with the work coming out of our teams over the past few sessions.
Cubs have been working hard on their end dance and are looking super sassy! We can't wait to see their full routine in February.
Panthers have been drilling their stunt timing and are looking really clean and sharp. We are loving watching this team come together and can't wait to see them take the mat at BCA.
Leopards have a solid end dance and their stunts are looking so much stronger. We are so proud of the bonds being made within this team and how supportive they are of one another.
Jaguars have been working their end dance and working on their jump and tumble timing over the past few weeks. What they lack in size, this team is more than making up for in spirit and determination.
Tigers have begun their routine for July's competition and have been working super hard on their stunts and tumbles. We can't wait to see how their routine develops over the coming months.
Rec has grown in numbers recently which is amazing news and they have been drilling their tumbles as well as beginning to learn some stunts! We love the fun energy this team brings into the gym every week!
With only a couple of weeks of training left before the Christmas holidays, we are excited to see how these teams develop before the end of term.
Speaking of Christmas, we are excited to announce our annual Hellcats Christmas Party! On Monday 16th December from 6-8pm, all Hellcats are invited to an evening of fun, games and festive merriment in the gym at Heathside School.
Santa's elves have been hard at work in Hellcats HQ sorting this year's Christmas orders. All orders will be available for collection during the last week of term. Please note that any orders not collected by the end of your last training session will be given to your cheerleader.
Our last date for orders to be placed in time for Christmas is Monday 2nd December. Orders placed after this deadline cannot be guaranteed in time for Christmas.
We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that if your cheerleader is on one of our All-Star teams (Cubs, Panthers, Leopards, Jaguars, Lions, Mountain Lions, Ocelots) and competing at BCA Fundamentals in February, you will need to purchase tickets from the BCA website if you would like to watch. Tickets can be purchased by clicking this link.
We also require proof of age for all athletes who are new to competing with BCA this season (anyone who competed with us last season on Panthers, Leopards, Jags or Lions, your proof of age has already been submitted from last season). Please send Laura a copy of either your cheerleader's passport or birth certificate via email as soon as possible so we can complete the registration process.
Those athletes who did compete at BCA Summer Showdown will have been issued an ID Card. These are essential for competition as athletes are unable to compete without them. Please ensure that your cheerleader knows where their ID Card is. If you need to purchase a new card, replacements are charged at £10 per athlete.
Finally, our last date of training for this term is Thursday 19th December. We will be returning on Monday 6th January 2020.
See you at training! Rachel, Laura, Charlie, Sarah, Kat and Tiff x
We are so excited to announce our Christmas party!
This year we will be holding our annual Christmas Party at Heathside Gym on Monday 16th December from 6pm-8pm.
This is a ticketed event and tickets cost £5 per athlete. These can be purchased on our online store.
As well as being a great opportunity for all our teams to hang out together and bond, we will be providing fun, games, prizes and a small gift for each athlete.
We are looking forward to seeing you there!
Ordered merch for Christmas?
All our Hellcats merchandise will be available to collect in training sessions from Monday 16th December (the last week of term).
Please note all orders will be given to cheerleaders at the end of their last training session of the term unless you have already collected them.
REMINDER: if you would like to purchase any Hellcats merchandise, all orders must be in by Monday 2nd December to guarantee Christmas delivery.
Just a reminder that our first competition of the season is 1st and 2nd February 2020.
This will be held at K2 Sports Centre in Crawley.
Levels 1 & 2 (Cubs, Panthers, Leopards, Lions and Mountain Lions) will be competing on Saturday 1st February.
Levels 3+ (Jaguars and Ocelots) will be performing on Sunday 2nd February.
We do not yet know the running order so are unable to give more specific information at this time. However, as soon as we know we will pass it on.
