Ace High Cheerleading Squad & Ace Gymnastics Club wishes to provide the best possible
environment for all young people involved in this sport. Young people deserve to be given
enjoyable, safe sporting opportunities, free of abuse from any kind. These participants have

GUIDELINES FOR PARENTS Ace Club appreciates parental support by:
Being a role model for your child and maintaining the highest standards of conduct when
interacting with children, other parents, coaches and organizers.
Never intentionally expose any young athlete to embarrassment at any time
Always recognize the value and importance of the coaches and other leaders who provide
opportunities for your child.
Never publicly question the judgment or honesty of club coaches.
Approach (text/phone call/e mail or in person at a suitable time) the head club coach
Fiona Collumb with your concern where a return call will be made to discuss same.
Please note I strongly request using another means of reprimanding your child (if they are
misbehaving) other than missing from any Ace High Class. As this is seen as an absent
day and needs to be challenged. Absent athletes also have a direct knock on effect on the
remainder of the squad, as each squad is dependent on all members being present to be
able to execute their routines well.
Encourage your child to understand their responsibility towards all others-teach them the
importance of fair play and good example at all times.
Parental support of fundraising efforts for the club are very much appreciated – funds
raised will be put towards upgrading of equipment / uniforms when needed / trips.
Other fundraising will be notified and passed onto Pieta House
Any effort is gratefully received by your club for your child.
Please allow the coaches to do their job - I would request strongly that parents abstain
from watching through the window or open door when dropping off or collecting their
children. To do this is very distracting for the athletes.
Plus, as a developing club we like to promote independence within your child.
Parental support of all efforts to remove or resolve any difficult issues in relation to their
