Where did the season go???  Some years are better than others, but this is definitely one I wish could go on a little bit longer.  I'm so glad we have all six squads attending to end the season together.  Let's stay focused and go out on top!

 
 
 
General Information

The competition will take place Saturday, May 12th at Socastee High School located at 4900 Socastee Blvd, Myrtle Beach, SC 29588.  In a welcome change the Spectator Fee is only $10 at the door (CASH ONLY).  No videoing allowed.  Comments have been made in the past that crowd participation has been included in judge's critiques.  So we will be asking that the parents make sure they are down front together (when VIP sections are available), cheering, and LOUD!  Feel free to wear Carolina Elite colors!

Uniform, Hair, and Makeup
 

The girls have been told at practice how their hair should be worn.  If you need someone to do your hair please arrive in plenty of time to have them do it.  Don't wait til the last minute and be respectful when asking others to help.  As is usually the case we have selected a hairstyle that is clean and elegant!  The parents will appreciate it when they aren't taking hours to do the hair...and the kids will appreciate it years later when they look back and don't see a "bump".

As always DO NOT FORGET UNIFORM, SHOES, AND BLOOMERS.  Check and double check before leaving.  Then check again.  We expect no more make up than you would normally wear to school, including no glitter.  Clear lip gloss is perfect.  Also remove any finger nail polish and trim nails.  Long nails can be considered a safety hazard.  No jewelry is allowed.  Please arrive in uniform ready to perform (that means not in pajamas and boots, that's even listed in the USASF image guidelines).



Medical Form
 

Medical forms have already been handled.



Food
 

Make sure Session 1 squads are able to grab at least a snack before competing.  Session 2 squads should get a healthy breakfast.  Session 3 squads should get an energy filled lunch.



Last but not least
 

Please allow at LEAST an additional 30 minutes to whatever your GPS says it will take to arrive. You never know when you may have a flat tire, a broken axel, pulled for speeding, hit traffic, get lost...the list goes on!

Folks I know it's the beach and for Energy, Enchanted, and Elevate that works out great, they get to compete and then play.  For Excite, Evolution, and Empower remember we are here to compete first.  The beach will always be there, the chance to take the floor will not.  Do not wear yourself out or drain yourself lying out in the sun.  I promise you'll be much happier with yourself if you focus on the competition first.

This is a very long competition and I have not asked you to remain all day to support each other, BUT if you have the opportunity to stick around or come early to support one of the other squads please do so!
