FCC National Christian Cheerleading Championships
Tips to make your experience the best possible ...
Tips for Coaches:Read through all material thoroughly. Try to make small changes to routine prior to arriving in Orlando (i.e. if round off handspring layout is not clean, change to tuck or a skill that will hit 10 out of 10 times). Keep good records of them, but this will allow you to order everything exactly as you need it prior to the event.
Plan in detail your trip timetable:
- Meals - Note: Only Friday Breakfast & Dinner and Saturday Breakfast are included in the Meal Package.
- Practices - Though these shouldn't be strenuous, it is good to run through everything to get jitters out of your system.
- Free Time - Don't give them tons of time to themselves before they perform. Girls have a tendency to make themselves nervous.
- Free Day - Whether a theme park or something fun on hotel property, give them the specifics of departure and return times.
Plan in detail your trip budget:
- Meals which are not included in the Registration Fee
- Transportation (if you are renting a vehicle, remember gas as well)
- Shuttle service
- Rental van/ car
