Dismissal at the end of each session:

We will have the coaches and athletes exit the building first, followed by the parents. The exit doors are not the entrance doors so there should not be an issue with traffic coming in at the same time you are leaving.

We ask each team have a plan with the parents prior to your arrival where you will meet at the end of your session. The gym lobby is not a great place to meet as the next session will be arriving.

Parents & Spectators:

Please stay in the stands until the athletes have exited the gym. Once the athletes have exited the gym parents will be able to exit.

Please do not go on the mats at any time during the event, awards or just after awards. Your help with this is greatly appreciated and necessary for a smooth transition from one session to the next.

  • No Talking
  • Please control younger children from roaming around.

Spectators please cheer along with and clap for all teams. Cheer points are not based on how loud the crowd response is so let's all help the smaller teams/associations with response from the entire crowd. All teams have worked hard this season and deserve the respect and attention of everyone in the gym while they are taking their 2 1/2 minutes on the mat. Last year spectators were great with this, let's keep up the sportsmanship!!




During awards the cheerleaders will come to the mats with nothing but themselves. No bags, jackets, flowers, poms, signs, etc on the mat during awards.

Judges table:

The only time coaches and coordinators should be at the judges table is when doing score check an be in the assigned section. Spectators are not to approach the judges table. Please do not call or text Nicole during the event. While teams are on the floor if you have an urgent issue, Deb Smith is your go to person unless she is seated at the judges table. If you need Nicole between sessions she will be on the floor immediately following awards or in the staff room upstairs. If it is not urgent address it after the event.


It is very important that volunteers are on time and helpful. Coordinators or a designated board member should check to see if their volunteers have all showed up and are working. If not please find a replacement A.S.A.P.
