Attendance Policy

Hinsdale Falcon Cheerleading is a team sport and full and equal participation of each squad member is crucial to creating a positive, productive and safe experience for ALL Falcon cheerleaders. Accordingly, all squad members are expected to be present, arriving on time, to each practice, game, competition, and performance. Full participation of all those assigned to a squad helps ensure a safe and productive environment for practices, routine development and competition.  Consequently, the absence of even one squad member impacts the safety and success of the entire squad.  A single miss affects the entire squad and impacts those who have committed to be at all practices and games.  

 

POLICY

 

Attendance and participation at each practice, game and competition is MANDATORY in order to create the most safe and successful experience for every Falcon cheerleader and squad. AN ABSENCE IS NOT EXCUSED FOR ANOTHER SPORT/ACTIVITY. Hinsdale Falcon Cheerleading is expected to be a priority commitment for each Falcon cheerleader during the season.
