Attendance is mandatory at all practices. This includes extra practices that may be added the weeks prior to competition. Failure in meeting the attendance requirements for the competitive squad could result in the athlete being removed from the program without a refund. It is expected that all athletes be in attendance at every competition during the season as well as all practices the week of competition. Please plan vacations accordingly.

Full details of the complete attendance policy will be provided in the Parent Handbook prior to the start of the season. The attendance expectation is very strict and includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • More than 5 absences may result in removal from the squad at the discretion of the board.
  • Missing practice the week of a competition may result in the athlete sitting out of that competition.
  • Competitions ARE MANDATORY for everyone. Missing a competition may result in removal from the program. Although the board will not approve an athlete to miss a competition due to a vacation, any other conflict with competition weekends must be brought to the board at the time of registration for review. Failure to present conflicts prior to the start of the season, will result in removal from the program without refund.



HCA reserves the right to refuse registration from any participants and/or families that currently do not have an updated account status OR who have repeatedly violated ANY of the parent expectations outlined in the parental conduct guidelines.
