Being a Member of Pacific All-Stars The commitment and attendance policy


At Pacific All-Stars we have high professional standards and regulations, which are taken very seriously. Athletes are expected to demonstrate their commitment by having a 100% attendance rate (within reason). Under certain circumstances, permission may be granted for an athlete to miss a given lesson provided prior approval is sort from Club Owner Jessi Zieleman. If a lesson needs to be missed for a justified and approved reason (listed in Other Information), a minimum of 2 weeks notice must be given in writing. We have a strict attendance policy and tardiness is not tolerated. We encourage athletes to participate in other sporting activities outside of cheerleading; however, please know that we do not tolerate Pacific All-Stars training being missed due to other sporting commitments. Please choose your sports wisely so that athletes can be 100% committed to all the sports they decide to take on. If an athlete is ill or injured we ask that they still attend training to watch so that they do not miss any changes to routines, unless the illness or injury is detrimental to their health or others. You must call the director on 0497 097 245, to notify us at least 2 hours prior to your training time so that the coaches can make changes prior to the lesson commencing. A doctors certificate is required for any illness or injury that will prevent the athlete from participating in more than one training session.
