General Gym Rules & Policies

General Rules


  • Cheerleaders should arrive at least 5 minutes early and should be in the stretching area ready to begin at the start of practice.

  • No food, gum, jewelry, or outside shoes allowed on spring floor.

  • Water bottles are encouraged, as athletes are only to drink water during practice. Clean up when finished with practice.

  • Cell phones and other electronic devices MUST be shut off for the duration of practice.  They should not be used unless given permission by a coach.

  • Cheerleaders must keep their belongings in the designated areas.

  • Practice/competition shoes should be worn for practice and competition only!  These shoes are not to be worn outside the gym for any reason. If pre-season shoes become overly worn looking, you will be required to purchase another pair for competition season…so take care of the shoes! 

  • Hair must be pulled back.

  • All items inside the gym are the responsibility of the athlete who brings them in, and the gym is not responsible for any lost or stolen items. 
  • Parents are not to arrive to cheer practice prior to end time.                                                       
  • Girls are to wear Element apparel to EVERY practice. If needed, sports bras are to be worn, and please don’t forget the deodorant.

  • During the competition season the practices are closed to parents. This is only to ensure we have full attention of the girls. We will designate open practice times so that you can eventually watch. However, if at any time practices get disrupted by parents or siblings we will close the rest of that particular practice. When we move you will have a designated area.

  • Please leave the coaching to us. Do no talk to your child during practice (both tumble and cheer). There are many things going on in the gym at one time and we need full attention and concentration of the girls at all times. Do not sit beyond the parent seating area, as this is a liability for the gym.

  • Please do not approach or text the coaches with problems or concerns before or after practice. You can txt about setting up a meeting, but most conflicts need to be dealt with face to face.  We will be glad to set up time outside of practice to meet with you.  We need to be focused so we can give your children 100%.

.    Cellular messaging is to allow TFF to communicate in an efficient manner

with our clients. Please do not message us with issues that should be

dealt with face to face (ie why did my child’s spot change, my child had

a problem at practice today). Appropriate messaging would include my daughter has the flu and cannot make practice, we are lost trying to get to competiton… basically anything that has a negative connotation should be saved for a meeting. If we do not message back, please follow protocol and e mail us and we will set a meeting or a time to call you.
