Dance Team Guidelines and Procedures

Academics

Student-athletes must maintain their college requirements in order to participate in the Dance Team.

If your grades fall below a 2.0 GPA and the College feels you need to spend more time after school making up the work, you will not be allowed to practice or play in games until all grades are brought back up to the acceptable 2.0 GPA.

The coach will be get updates from Hawkeye on the status of your GPA and class work.

As a student-athlete you will be expected to attend each and every training session and meet. If you cannot make it to practice or a meet, it is your responsibility to inform the coach about your absence in advance.

Be on Time

Training sessions begin promptly as given to you in the schedule. All equipment needs to be in place. Warm-ups will begin promptly.

Captains

Captains will be selected by the coaches and advisors. A captain must be a good leader, keep the team enthusiastic, and be a good role model – both on the field and off. Captains are also the people in charge of the Dance Team Club and its operation. Warm-ups are done as a team, led by the captains. Member must be focused and preparing for the competition.

Equipment

Before the first meet, you will be issued an uniform. These are to be worn only at the meets. Any lost or damaged items will be charged to you.

Sportsmanship
