Football Season Wrap Up!

As football season comes to an end and basketball and competition season approach, I just want to congratulate each cheerleader for a great 2013 football season! You all had a fantastic showing at the games (rain, hail or shine) and especially at the Pep Rally! We received an amazing amount of compliments from OP staff, parents, and other coaches! You have set the tone for a very successful and memorable second half of the season.  I also just want to thank each parent for your ongoing support with crazy schedules, practice times, and locations! We appreciate your commitment as we try to figure out what works best for the girls, the program, and the coaches; and then coordinate it and get it all approved by the Athletic Office. It's not always an easy task so we appreciate your patience!  Keep up the good work! And remember we have double ECIC titles to defend this year! GO QUAKERS! -Coach Jill and Coach Lauren

Varsity Basketball Season FINAL Calendars

Each Varsity cheerleader will receive a hard copy of the basketball season calendar this week. Here is a copy for you on here as well. I have had many conflicts pop up last minute and felt it was imperative to set dates well in advance so that we do not run into these conflicts during competition season. Each athlete is expected to attend each and every practice along with games. We are competing in the Extra Large division at ECIC's this year and in order to keep our defending title I need full commitment from everyone. I have done my absolute best to accommodate each of your children's other commitments so they do not have conflicts. I need the same commitment on OPHS Varsity as well! I am very excited for the upcoming months, the team so much potential and talent this year!
