In the school:
Obey all school rules
Obey any classroom rules instituted by different teachers
On the team:
To attend all practices/meetings – This is extremely important for team building
To arrive at all practices and performances prepared, on time, and ready to participate
To listen to my coach/ dance captain and follow their instructions
To be positive in all of my comments and actions
If a student quits without valid reason (valid would be: injury, academic considerations, parent request) or is removed from the team for discipline reasons, the student will not be permitted back on the Dance Team the following season.
If a student misses a Dance Team practice they must show responsibility by informing the coach ahead of time. Excuses may need to be verified. A team member is only allowed to miss 3 practices in an entire season so think carefully before you miss. If a student misses more than 3 practices they will be removed from the team.
If a student is experiencing academic or behavioural problems in school he or she may be placed under suspension from the team until the matter is cleared up. Further team penalties may follow at the coach’s discretion.
This is a competitive team and performances will take place outside of school. Students must do everything possible to attend all performances. If a student cannot attend they must inform their coach as early as possible. Students will also be responsible for finding their own transportation to most performances/competitions.

I understand and will comply with the above agreement:
