    We just had a parent say that 2 weeks ago!!!! We scheduled an extra practice on a Saturday 9-11 and a mom called and said her cp has a b-day party that starts at 12...I asked why she couldn't be at practice when we get done before it starts and her response was "she needs to get dressed and get her hair done"!!!! I died....and the party was for her 3 year old cousin.....:-\

    I had a girl miss because she "HAD to get a Xmas tree". This was on December 20th.

    1. Why on earth are you getting a tree, putting it up, and decorating it when it will be up for about a week?
    2. You had a month after Thanksgiving to get it, and it had to be on a practice night?

    I also have a girl that is late ATLEAST 15 minutes every practice. You may ask why...."I have things to do besides cheerleading." Oh snap.

    Got this one all the time this year too. Hope they don't plan on cheering/coaching in college. I was sitting late into the night at basketball games with my girls when I had a 8am final the next morning....notecards, textbooks and all.

    this thread is rediculous! if you have to make lame excuses to miss practice, you obviously dont love the sport as much as your team does, and should prolly do something about it.

    This could be true. But...I think you had to know this girl...she was a frequent offender in trying to weasel her way out of things.

    I've heard 'sorry I have to go to the gym with my friends, I made plans.' 'I have to go to buy a new bed with my mum after school.' 'I was going to get my tragus pierced.' and my favourite 'Oh sorry, I have a party tonight and I need to buy alcohol.'

    All these excuses were from a FIFTEEN year old girl. She knew that practise was at the same time every week (and we only had an hour a week.) She was the same girl that then threw a mini tantrum when they came fourth at a competition.

    No underwear. Seriously.

    One guy on my team is always late to practice. On this particular occasion he walks in 15mins late, yells apologies over our warm ups as he walks to the guys change rooms. Comes out of there 10mins later still in his street clothes and calls out "hey, does anyone have a spare pair of jocks?"

    Coach still made him train while the rest of the team cringed any time we had to be near him. WHO DOESN'T WEAR UNDERWEAR?!!! And to follow on, who lends (or wants to borrow) other people's undies?!
