Ten Do’s to Success Ten things parents can do to help their female athlete succeed: 1. Let this experience belong to your daughter. We had our moments. This belongs to the girls. 2. Be a positive role model. It rubs off. Motivate and encourage your daughter. Show her you respect those involved and communicate any concerns in a respectful and dignified manner. 3. Be realistic. We were all given certain abilities. Accept your daughter as she is. Accept her talents and use them. Make the best of every situation and use it as a learning experience. Accept her role on the team. 4. Support the coaching staff. If you do so will your daughter. The coach represents authority; support the coach’s rules, philosophies, decisions, and so on. 5. Be supportive of other athletes. Treat each player as if he were your daughter.
6. Trust the coaches wisdom and insight. Coaches work with athletes 12 months of the year. They spend many hours with these girls in situations that parents may never see. In some cases, coaches know more about the athlete than the parents do. Don’t exert pressure on your daughter by telling him things she shouldn’t have to hear. Be a good role model. Let the coaches coach. 7. Be an active parent. Monitor your daughter’s grades. Insist that your daughter study and earn good grades. If you put academics first, your daughter will be more successful. 8. Support your daughter’s social activities. Monitor her friends, hangouts, boyfriends, curfew, language, rules, and so on. Talk to your daughter about drugs, alcohol, and tobacco use. Encourage your daughter to make the right choices. If you don’t communicate well in these areas, the wrong people may influence your little girl. 9. Be selfless. Use Pom & Cheer for the right reasons. Encourage your daughter to work hard and have fun. 10. Challenge your daughter. Teach and encourage personal responsibility. It’s a tough world out there. Let her begin preparing for it with “inexpensive mistakes”. Let the coaches push your daughter. Let the coaches make her tougher mentally and physically by challenging her.

COMMUNICATION • Communicate ahead of time (not after the fact). • Contact appropriate coach first (not administration): Level then Head Coach. • Remember: a little mutual respect and a calm approach make a big difference.
SQUAD STANDARDS • Team First Attitude • Winning Attitude • Be a Good Citizen • NO ALCOHOL OR DRUGS (zero toleration policy) • NO UNSUPERVISED PARTIES. • Don’t embarrass your family or the program! If Coach Woodworth would freak out, don’t do it!
PERRY TEAM COVENANT 1. A covenant is an agreement that binds people together. 2. Perry High School Pom & Cheer Rule of Declaration: There are only two options regarding the commitment to our TEAM Covenant. You’re either IN or you’re OUT. There is no such thing as life in between.
PERRY TEAM COVENANT 1. You are committed to excellence as a student and athlete and your success and achievements are for the TEAM. 2. All individual goals and accomplishments are secondary to the TEAM success. Jealousy, selfishness and individualism are tremendously destructive to the TEAM. 3. You will abide by TEAM policy, rules and regulations. 4. You will not participate in any cliques or segmented groups that destroy the TEAM concept and unity. 5. You must have a WINNING ATTITUDE!
WINNING ATTITUDE! A. Can your teammates and coaches trust you? Trust between teammates and staff is essential to a winning attitude. TRUST = ACCOUNTABILITY. B. Commitment to Excellence. Striving to improve strength, tumbling, technique, and mastering your position. C. Care about the TEAM. You must care about your team and make the personal sacrifices so your TEAM can be its best. We are only as strong as our weakest link.
