2024 Cheerleader Code of Conduct & Rules


Attendance: Cheerleaders are required to be at all practices, games, and competitions. Absences/tardies have an impact on a team as a whole and not just the one individual missing. We will not save spots for girls with attendance issues! YOUR ATTENDANCE WILL IMPACT PLACEMENTS AND POSSIBLE REMOVAL OF TEAMS.


1) Any activity that will interfere with cheerleading (camps, vacation, or other sports) will not be condoned.


2) Attendance: Starting July 15, 2024 attendance will be taken at each practice and game. NO PRACTICES CAN BE MISSED TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO A COMPETITION OR CHEERLEADER MAY BE PULLED FROM COMPETITION. Cheerleaders are allowed (3) excused absences from practice excluding the two week periods prior to competitions. Excused absences (family/school) with 1 week prior notification via email to CVAAATTENDANCE@GMAIL.COM and to the Parent Advisors ON THE SAME EMAIL may be acceptable but again if these types of absences are in excess the result will be dismissal.


We understand that things come up last minute. Notification in writing via email needs to be made to Head Parent Advisor and CVAAATTENDANCE@GMAIL.COM 2 hours prior to practice/game.  Excessive unexcused absences (3) and tardiness (3 greater than 10 minutes) may result in cheerleader being dismissed from CVAA squad/comp team. Any issues not outlined will need to be approved by the President. Head Parent Advisor contact info will be on the website. If your cheerleader is absent without prior notification to Head Parent Advisor AND CVAAATTENDANCE@GMAIL.COM she will be marked as an unexcused absence on the attendance log.


3) Practice: Practice is held 5 days a week Mon-Fri from 6:00pm-8:00pm for PW, JV & V and 6:00pm-7:20pm for JPW thru August 10th. Starting on the week of August 12st, practice will go to three days a week, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.  JPW will practice 3 days a week Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 6:00-7:20pm. Cheerleaders should arrive 5 min before start of practice time and should be picked up immediately after the end of practice. Cheerleaders must wait in the practice area for safety reasons. If you are going to be late please notify HEAD PARENT ADVISOR and CVAAATTENDANCE@GMAIL.COM via email. Not having a ride to practice/games/competitions is not a valid excuse as an absence. EBYFC rules state coaches are not allowed to transport team members.


A) Demerit system for tardiness/absence:

  1. Late for game-arrival after check in – you will start cheering as soon as the other team checks cheerleader in.
  2. Late to practice/game – 3 times greater than 10 minutes may be dismissed from squad/comp team.
  3. Miss 2 games (unexcused/excused) may be removed from CVAA squad/comp team.


Cheerleaders are required to be in full practice gear with plenty of water and ready for practice (Please eat and use the restroom prior to arriving to practice). Please bring sweats for colder weather.
