Girls must wear appropriate attire to training:
- Leotard, leggings or bike shorts.
In winter you can wear a crossover or a tight long sleeved top over the top of your leotard (available from Dancewear shops or Target/Kmart/Best & Less)
- Hair must be tied up and pulled back off the face for all classes. It should either be in a bun or ponytail. Fabric headbands can also be worn to keep hair off the face (see merchandise)
- No excess jewellery
Clubs, Rod and aesthetic skirt must be brought to every class. If your clubs and rod are lost or damaged you will incur a replacement fee.
Water bottles should also be brought to every class, even in winter. Classes can be very strenuous and it is important to keep hydrated throughout class.
Teams are selected in each age group early in the year. The coaches endeavour to assess each individual’s skill level and experience and place them in a team that will ensure their skills and confidence are further developed. Different teams learn different routines that take the ability and skill level of the participants into account.
Classes are run throughout each school term and towards competition times there may be extra classes scheduled. It is important that each team member attends all classes as routines are learnt and then detailed. If a team member is absent this means that the whole lesson will need to be repeated. As you can appreciate, this often leads to the frustration of the coach and other team members.
Attendance and punctuality at every class is not only expected, but also a vital part of being a member at Evatt. This also extends to all extra practices, competitions, camps, and the annual concert. If, for some reason, you cannot attend a class, you must inform your Team Manager or Coach as soon as possible.
All team members should arrive at least 10 minutes before class is scheduled to start. This will ensure that they are able to warm up properly which will prevent injuries and will also enable the coaches to devote more time to actually teaching the class. All team members are expected to practice at home regularly, the skills and routines learnt in class.
Should you have any questions or concerns about your daughter’s class please contact the Team Manager in the first instance.
