Cheer Attendance Policy

Palos Verdes Youth Football & Cheer Attendance and Conduct Policy

The following is the PVYF&C Attendance Policy and is approved and endorsed by the PVYF&C Board and Coaches.


The Palos Verdes Youth Football & Cheer Board of Directors has directed all teams to establish a consistent and reasonable policy regarding attendance and conduct at practices during August and during the season, as well as for season games, and playoff games and competitions. The following is our policy regarding participation in all Cheer activities.

Philosophy on Attendance

It has always been our personal belief that one of the best things about cheerleading is the camaraderie that comes with sharing all of the hard work, pain, joy, and shear sweat for the common purpose of becoming a powerful and competitive group of individuals who have learned to perform as a team. When one member of our team fails to come to practice regularly or on time, that person loses part of the sport and the experience and greatly affects the other members of her team. To miss practices during August puts an individual behind in what has been learned and takes away from his or her feeling of being part of this team. Furthermore, that member affects the ability of her stunt group to practice safely and consistently. To miss practices during the season, unless due to illness, injury or academic activity, prevents that person and her squad from being adequately prepared to cheer and perform at the game on Saturday and be properly prepared for competition later in the season. Absence also deprives her of the respect of her teammates. It hurts the team, and it hurts the individual - your child. In order to get the most out of the cheer experience, it is imperative that all members of the team learn to make her team mates as important as themselves, and to make the individual sacrifices that are shared by all members of the team, coaches and players alike, acommon cause that unites all of us in the exhilaration of the final test - the games and the competitions! Cheerleading is a team sport and dependent on a team mentality to be safe andcompetitive.


Palos Verdes Youth Football and Cheer has an established vacation policy:

1.  Attendance at August practice is MANDATORY. Please do not plan vacations during the month.

2.  Unexcused absences at practice in excess of three may cause the cheerleader to be droppedfrom the squad.

3.  Attendance at football games is MANDATORY. Unexcused absences for more than twogames will cause the participant to be dropped from the team.

4.  Academic school functions have priority over PV Football practice or games. No participant shall be penalized in any form for participation in school-sponsored events. (Cotillion is NOT anacademic school-sponsored event.)

Families that are planning August vacations or camps should elect NOT to participate in our program.

To the individual, this may seem demanding. However, when the squad works as a unit and when the squad counts on every participant to be there and ready to participate, it is the fairness to the regular attendee that tips the scales. Due to the SAFETY of ALL our participants, please give due consideration to your level of commitment, for the benefit of your child as well as the rest of the team

Attendance Requirements

It is the task of the coaches to make a team out of individuals, and to take necessary actions to prevent disunity within the team. Due to the complicated nature of the stunts and cheer formations, each squad member is an important and integral part of the team. Each girl must be present for the squad to effectively and safely choreograph and practice its competition routine and to perform at games. With that in mind, PVYF&C and Pop Warner endorse the following policy regarding attendance at practices, games, and activities.
