CHEER + STUNT

Woodcreek Cheer 2020 - 2021

All dates and locations below are tentative and subject to change especially as we navigate these uncertain times. Woodcreek Cheer will follow the direction of our county, district and school and will cancel any event below as dates approach.

Please check back often for the most current information.

 

PRACTICE UPDATE AS OF 8/18/20: Great news! on 8/24/20 we will be able to begin practices in person in small socially distanced groups at the school. THESE GROUPS WILL REMAIN THE SAME FOR 4 WEEKS AND CANNOT MIX. The start time for each group is staggered to ensure social distancing. The groups were emailed out and will be shared in the band app.  To keep our team connected as a whole, every other Wednesday's practice will be held on zoom until further notice. 

 

Below are the guidelines we must follow to ensure the safety of our athletes and coaches.

 

Social Distancing

  • All participants must remain at least 6 feet apart at all times during the training, as well as before and after practice. Pods will practice at least 100 feet apart from the other pods.

  • Participants cannot transfer between groups; once a group is established, they must remain together throughout a training session and across multiple training sessions. This includes arrival and waiting for practice to begin/end.

  • Participants need to arrive and leave practice separately. NO CARPOOLING AT THIS TIME

  • There should be no shared athletic equipment (towels, clothing, shoes, or sports specific equipment) between students.

 

Hydration and Gear

  • Athletes and coaches need to come to campus in practice attire (no locker room access).

  • Athletes and coaches need to bring their own individual water bottle. With the heat it is recommended to bring A LOT OF WATER! All water faucets at the school have been turned off and athletes cannot share with one another. 

 

Screening

  • All participants must be screened at home for symptoms prior to arrival to each training session. Anyone currently experiencing fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle aches, sore throat, runny nose or congestion, loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea is not permitted to participate and should be sent home immediately. If possible, Coach Amber would still like to have athletes ZOOM into practice and can use her phone to connect athletes to practice.

  •  If a student or coach tests positive or is presumed positive, please contact Coach Amber and she will alert the site principal, nurse, and district office.

 

Face Covering

  • Coaches will wear a face covering over the nose and mouth at all times.

  • Students must wear face coverings at all times (even leaving and entering campus – before/after practice) unless breathing requires heavy exertion. Once heavy exertion has subsided, the face covering must be placed over the nose and mouth. Players should take a break from exercise if any difficulty in breathing is noted and should change their mask or face covering if it becomes wet and sticks to the player’s face and obstructs breathing. Masks that restrict airflow under heavy exertion (such as N-95 masks) are not advised for exercise.

 

The school has updating their athletic clearance system for physicals  to Home Campus and it can be accessed at  https://www.rjuhsd.us/domain/823

There are instructions at this link on how to fill out the new forms. I would recommend reading the directions prior to visiting the doctors to ensure physical is done correctly. EVERY ATHLETE MUST COMPLETE A NEW PHYSICAL. Physicals are to be turned in by out July 20th return date in hopes we can practice in person by then. 

 

MOVING FORWARD

There are constant meetings at all levels to determine what can stay the same and what modifications need to be made for the safety of our athletes and their families. We will try to stick to our vision that was announced at our March meeting of Sidelines during Football and Basketball and our own competitions. As we learn more about how those will be conducted we will let everyone know. It’s not normal for a lot of emails to go out from Woodcreek Cheer after the first month or so but in light of our current situation we will do our best to keep you informed through email and our website. Please always check all pages of the website to answer any questions first before reaching out to the coaching staff or board.
