Practice Requirements

We practice at Seven Springs Middle School, and our home games are played at the J.W. Mitchell High School stadium. PAL requires 10 hours of conditioning for all athletes, which will occur during the first 4 days of practice.

After conditioning requirements have been met, summer practice will be 4 days per week, 6pm-8:30pm each day: Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Once school begins, practice will be 3 days a week, 6pm-8pm: Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Occasionally, the practice schedule will need to be altered to accommodate events taking place at SSMS and JWMHS.

We will alert families in advance of these changes. Girls are to wear shorts, t-shirts, and appropriate athletic shoes. Flip-flops, slides, and revealing clothing is not permitted, ans is grounds from removal from practice. Please bring plenty of water to practice.

Practice Participation Requirements

Players must physical participate in practices during the week to be eligible to play on Saturdays. A player may miss one practice during the week and remain eligible. Coming to practice and watching does not constitute attendance of practice, unless permission is granted by either the Director and/or Cheer Coordinator.

Head coaches will keep written attendance reports for practice and turn them in to the Cheer Coordinator on a weekly basis, and they will be retained for the remainder of the season. These reports will be made available upon request to the opposing team's Director or any PAL Executive Board member.
