All-Star Cheerleading Team Packet Welcome to Exceptional Athletics Nebraska and thank you for your interest in our All-Star Cheerleading Program!
MISSION: To be a premier cheerleading facility in the greater Omaha area and to provide a fun, safe environment for children to learn and grow in their cheerleading and tumbling abilities.
REGISTRATION: Forms for registration are available at Exceptional Athletics Nebraska or via email.
MEMBERSHIP FEES: An annual membership fee of $40/year for 1 child or $75/year for 2 children or $100 for 3 or more children is required. This is to assist with covering insurance and paperwork
ALLSTAR PROGRAM INFORMATION: All-Star Cheerleading is a competitive team not associated with a school but rather with a gym such as Exceptional Athletics Nebraska. Teams prepare year around for several different competitions. Teams are divided according to age and skill levels: Minis: 8 years and under Youth: 12 years and under Junior: 14 years and under Senior: 18 years to 10 Special Needs: All ages

Tryouts: Tryouts will be held Every Tuesday and Thursday in April and will be an open format. Kids ages 10 and under will practice from 6-7pm and kids ages 10 and older will practice from 7-8:30pm. We may ask kids to try different times to see where they fit best. Everyone will be practicing as a group, so we can see how everyone works together.

Team Placement:

Exceptional Athletics retains the right to:
1. Place cheerleaders on the team(s) it feels will best suit them and the program.
2. Move, add, suspend, or dismiss a cheerleader for a period of time or indefinitely from a team or the entire program based on criteria including but not limited to: attendance, conduct, skills, finances, etc.
3. Decide if a cheerleader may participate on more than one team.
4. Decide the roles and/or positions a cheerleader will have/play on their team(s). (i.e. base, flyer, back spot, tumbler, dancer, etc.)
5. Request that a cheerleader or team take additional classes to improve skills.
6. Request that a cheerleader or team practice longer than their regularly scheduled time or add additional practices or competitions if deemed necessary. This includes removing competitions if the coaches feel the team is not ready.

Cheerleaders chosen to participate on more than one Exceptional Athletics team must:
1. Be in good financial standing.
2. Be willing and able to fulfill all responsibilities required by each team.
3. Be responsible for any additional entry fees they incur beyond their first team.

Practices: Practices are held twice a week. The schedule will depend on team practices. Additional practices may be added as we get closer to competition season. All changes will be communicated to parents and team members in a timely manner.

Tentative Practice Schedule for the 2013-2014 practice season:

Minis (Emeralds): Tuesday 5:30-6:30 & Thursday 6-7 Juniors (Titanium): Wednesday 6-8:30(May)/Monday 6-8:30(After May) & Thursday 6-7 Seniors (Diamonds): Tuesdays- 6:00-8:30 & Thursday 5:00-8:30 Special Needs (Gems): Sundays 3-4

Attendance: For the competitive teams, attendance is critical for learning, perfecting, and improving routines and skills.

April thru July 31st absent program:
Each athlete will be required to check in at each practice they attend. Athletes will be permitted 3 excused absences without repercussion during this period. This allows each athlete to attend family vacations when they choose. Athletes are still required to fill out an Absence Request Form for family vacations. August thru March absent program: Each athlete will be allowed 3 excused absences for the rest of the year. Any more than the allowed number of absences will be cause for dismissal from the program. This includes school events.

Competition Absences: Athletes are required to attend all practices 2 weeks prior to a competition. Any absences during this period will be unexcused and the athlete may be removed from the routine for the upcoming competition. These absences may also result in dismissal of the athlete from the team for the remainder of the season. We may add practices 2 weeks before a competition, but we will not change regular practice schedules. Absence from a competition for any reason, including illness (not contagious), will result in dismissal from the program and the athlete may not be eligible to try out for the next season. The only exceptions to this rule will be a death in the family or the admission of the athlete to the hospital.

In your packet you will find an “absence Request Form”. Please fill it out as soon as you know of any event you will not be present for. Please note that just because a form is filled out does not mean it is excused.

Practice Etiquette: Please come to practice on time, dressed and ready to start working out. If this means you need to wrap a wrist or get dressed please show up early. The door to the gym will close at 6:15pm therefore if you are not ready to practice or there by 6:15 you will not be able to attend that nights practice.

Those not participating in a class must remain out of the gym area at all times. This includes parents and siblings who have classes scheduled at other times. There is a viewing area where you can wait and watch during practice. This policy enables our staff to retain their student’s full attention ensuring they receive a quality class. We ask that parents please do not talk with your child during class time. A child’s contact with their parents can be very limiting to their class progress and could become a safety hazard due to a lack of concentration from the child. The coaches reserve the right to close practices at any time. In the event, the team mom will remain at practice. We will allow parents and family members to join us on the floor the last 30 minutes of practice the week before a competition.

Attitude: Please come to practice in the best mood possible. I know this is hard, but please try to leave your problems at the door. Bad attitudes and lack of enthusiasm is contagious and can quickly ruin a practice. If we feel you aren’t putting a 100% into practice or disrupting our practice we will ask you to leave. During practices the athletes may not chew gum or drink soda. No food is allowed in the gym area. No cell phones are allowed in the gym area. In the event that your phone is being used it will be confiscated till the end of practice.

Dress Code: We will be ordering practice clothes at the beginning of the season. The cost for 2 outfits and one t-shirt/shorts combo is $75 and an additional $25 if you are crossing over to another team. Please refer to the monthly calendars on what your child is expected to wear for each practice. We will allow minis and juniors to wear their t-shirt/shorts over their practice wear. Seniors, you may wear sweat pants and a t-shirt for warm ups and conditioning, but they must come off for the beginning of tumbling or stunting.

All girls should have their hair pulled back. For safety, jewelry must be removed. We have a changing area so please arrive at least 10 minutes early if you need to change. Shoes must be worn at all times in the gym.

Payment Plan: The payment plan is based on facility fees, & competition registration costs. The monthly fee is due on the first practice of the month. These prices do not include registration, warm ups, camp (Schedule and cost will be determined soon), uniform costs ($200), or hotel and travel costs.

Senior monthly fee breakdown: Facility Fee: $60 Competition Fees: $50 Total: $110/month

Junior monthly fee breakdown: Facility Fee: $35 Competition Fees: $35 Total: $70/month

Mini monthly fee breakdown: Facility Fee: $20 Competition Fees: $35 Total: $55/month

We take checks and cash and credit cards and willing to set up automatic payments. There will be a deposit box where you can place payments during practices. A late penalty fee will be added as follows for any payment that is turned in late without prior notice:

* 7 days late: receive a notice & $5 late fee * 8-14 days late: receive a notice & $10 late fee * 15-21 days late: receive a notice & $15 late fee & competitive athlete conditions for 1 practice * 22 days – 1 month late: receive a notice & $20 late fee along with competitive athlete conditions for 2 additional practices * After 1 month of missed payment the athlete’s position on the team will be reconsidered
Non-sufficient fund checks and returned credit card payments will result in a $50.00 fee for the 1st and 2nd offense. If this happens after the 2nd offence we will no longer accept checks from the family turning in the NSF checks

ALL STAR has operations throughout North America and Europe, and its international head office is located in Chicago. Consolidated net sales are in excess of US$1 billion, and ALL STAR’s shares are traded publicly on the New York Stock Exchange.

Bruce Tate, a senior manager in ALL STAR’s operations in the United States, was appointed President of ASFC. His mandate was to double the size of the Canadian operations and to generate a pre-tax profit margin in excess of 10% within a period of five years.

...ALL-STAR CITY TOURS Francine Jordache is the founder and the president of All-Star City Tours, a company that provides a variety of tours of great Canadian and American cities. She started the company in 2000 to respond to the need for tours for spouses and partners attending conferences in Canada. Organizations were looking for comprehensive packages that would entertain the partners of attendees while the conferences were in session. Calgary is the home base for the company that has expanded its operations with satellite offices in Halifax, Quebec City, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. As Francine grew the company into new cities, she appointed Branch Managers to manage the teams there. Those Branch Managers continue to report to Francine. There are now 520 Canadian employees, including 375 part-time regional staff. In 2005, Francine developed a partnership with an American, Ronda Brice, to create a subsidiary to run tours in U.S. cities and they called the company American All-Star City Tours. So far, operations have been established in Seattle, New Orleans, Miami and New York city. Offices in Boston, Los Angeles, and Houston are in the planning stages.

Case Study Analysis All Star Sports

...Workshop Two, Case Study Analysis In review and analysis of the Case Study, Decision Making at the Top: The All Star Sports Catalog Division, (Hellings, 2007) the decision making process could use some improvement. Environment, precedent, personalities, subject matter and leadership styles have both an overall and a situational impact on the decision making process. Stephen Robbins in the 2005 edition of Essentials of Organizational Behavior lays out a six-step rational decision making model which he proclaims to be ideal. Robbins model is as follows: 1. Define the problem; 2. Identify decision criteria; 3. Weight the criteria; 4. Generate alternatives; 5. Rate each alternative on each criterion; and 6. Compute the optimal decision. (Robbins, 2005) In my opinion this model and theory that he proclaims ideal may be valid. My experience is that in real-life, in business, these steps are not always practical and possible. This model assumes each person is available and comfortable to speak freely and has the opportunity to do so, when it comes to the generation of alternatives. The decision making process at All Star Sports as described is heavily embedded in analytical analysis. This model is very good for decisions with financial impact. There are some decisions however, that are not number-based. Ironically, an example is a decision about ‘are we using a good decision making process’. The amount of people at the table is a weakness of their process. ......

Star Report

...Majoris is a main-sequence star that can be found in the constellation Ursa Major. It is the third brightest star in the asterism the Big Dipper and the 35th brightest star in the sky. This star has a surface temperature of approximately 20,000 degrees Kelvin and a mass that is six times that of the Sun’s mass. This star is approximately 100 light years away from Earth. Introduction Eta Ursae Majoris is a star found in the constellation Ursa Major. This star has two traditional names: Alkaid and Benetnash. All of the different names for this star have been derived by the Arabic phrase Al Ka'id Banat al Na'ash, which literally means "the Governor of the Daughters of the Bier", or, "The Chief of the Mourners." The mourners in Arabic poetry seem to have been the three stars of the handle of the Big Dipper: Alkaid, Mizar and Alioth. Alkaid is the most eastern star in the Big Dipper; it is the last star of the handle, and is the 35th brightest star in the sky. The constellation Ursa Major is not a commonly known shape in the sky, however it is the asterism known as the Big Dipper. The Big Dipper is composed of seven stars, and as mentioned before Alkaid is one of them. This asterism has a very long history, in many cultures it is seen as a chariot or wagon. These seven stars are not all moving in the same direction, and in time, the Big Dipper will break up. It is only in the past 50,000 years that the “dipper” has actually formed. Alkaid, unlike most of the stars in Ursa Major,......

Our sun is a medium-sized star.  Stars can live for billions of years. A star is born when an enormous cloud of hydrogen gas collapses until it is hot enough to burn nuclear fuel (producing tremendous amounts heat and radiation). As the nuclear fuel runs out (in about 5 billion years), the star expands and the core contracts, becoming a giant star which eventually explodes and turns into a dim, cool object (a black dwarf, neutron star, or black hole, depending on its initial mass). The largest stars have the shortest life span (still billions of years); more massive stars burn hotter and faster than their smaller counterparts (like the Sun). The composition of stars is studied using spectroscopy in which their visible light (the spectrum) is studied.  GROUPS OF STARS  In the universe, most stars occur in groups of at least two stars.

The Cradles of the Constellation

...constellations, and formed by the stars. Constellations are usually consist of bright stars that appear close to each other. Oriental cultures formed complicated patterns from some of the faintest stars, creating hundreds of constellations. "Constellation" is the name we give to seeming patterns of stars in the night sky. "Stella" is the Latin word for star and a constellation is a grouping of stars. In general, the stars in these groups are not actually close to each other in space, they just appear to be close when viewed from Earth. Constellations are named patterns of stars. All societies created them. The classical ancient constellations that populate our sky began in the lands of the middle-east thousands of years ago, their origins largely lost to time. They passed through the hands of the ancient Greeks, who covered them with their legends and summarized them in story and verse. During Roman times they were assigned Latin names. The ancient constellations limit out only the bright patterns. From around 1600s to 1800s, astronomers invented a large group of "modern" constellations from the faint stars that rest between the classical figures, from pieces of ancient constellations, and from the stars that occupy the part of the southern sky that could not be seen from classical lands. The patterns they imagined are the constellations. Today, it can be difficult to make out some of the shapes of the constellations because city lights obscure many of the dim stars. But......

Astronomy

...Stellar Evolution A star begins as a very light dispensation of interstellar gases and dust particles over a distance of a few twelve lightyears. Although there is intensely low pressure existing between stars, this dispensation of gas exists instead of a real vacuum. If the density of gas becomes bigger than 0.1 particles per cubic centimeter, the interstellar gas grows uncertain. Any small alteration in density, and because it is impossible to have a perfectly even distribution in these clouds this is something that will naturally occur, and the area begins to contract. This happens because between about .1 and 1 particles per cubic centimeter, pressure gains an inverse relationship with density. This causes internal pressure to decrease with increasing density, which because of the higher external pressure, causes the density to continue to increase. This causes the gas in the interstellar medium to spontaneously collect into denser clouds. The denser clouds will contain molecular hydrogen (H2) and interstellar dust particles including carbon compounds, silicates, and small impure ice crystals. Also, within these clouds, there are 2 types of zones. There are H I zones, which contain neutral hydrogen and often have a temperature around 100 Kelvin (K), and there are H II zones, which contain ionized hydrogen and have a temperature around 10,000 K. The ionized hydrogen absorbs ultraviolet light from it is environment and retransmits it as visible and......

Science of Stars

...Science of Stars Sherry LaFace University of Phoenix SCI/151 Robert Austin July 15, 2013 Telescopes are tools that provide a way to collect and process electromagnetic radiation that is in space and in the universe. Planets, stars, and other galaxies are all visible through telescopes which magnify the image that is out in space so that it is more visible through the magnification. Through the magnification of telescopes astronomers can study and learn more about the planets and stars that are being viewed. Astronomers’ having the ability to have better vision through the magnification of the telescope helps to determine the temperature, speed, and rotation in realms that are an extreme distance away. With magnification of planets and stars that was provided through telescopes astronomers where able to learn a great deal about the stars and their properties that each star possesses. The distance that the star is from earth can help to determine the brightness of the star. Stars appear brighter the closer that they are from the planet earth. Stars also appear brighter depending on the amount of energy that they are generating. Distance from earth and the amount of energy that the star is generating determine how bright a star appears to us on earth. Another aspect of a star that is taken into account when studying the stars is the size of the star itself. If the star is a very large object then it will appear brighter from earth then a star that is much smaller.......
