    Thou shall realize that cheer 'describes' what your child does. It does not 'define' who your child is.

    One shimmy was not enough. This is the exact perspective I try and preach to parents every year at tryouts. Kudos to you!

    Thou shall not talk about how much better your old gym was, how much more experienced the coaches, how much nicer the parents. Don´t tell us you´re just trying out here because old gym hasn´t a team suzie should be on (level 4/5) or because you had to move because of job.
    If it was so much better there .... you know ;-)

    I think some of these kids would argue this point (probably some parents too)

    Thou shall not buy over the top 1000$ gifts for your CP's coach at the end of the season banquet because tryouts are the following week!

    Thou shall not volunteer to be team mom of the team (you want your CP on) before tryouts have even been held!

    If going to a new gym/program thou shall remember where you came from and not talk bad about people who used to be your friend.

    Remember that someone somewhere taught you those amazing skills that you are now proudly using at a new gym. They invested into you and may be stunned and hurt that you have moved on. Show a little grace and say thank you.

    If an athlete moves on, let them go. Don't hold them back whether you agree with their decision or not. Let them go knowing you did the best you can while you could with them. You should have no regrets if you did that. And if you treat them right and they discover that they don't like it where they were, they will come back.

    Thou shall not tryout and proceed to take the "summer off" (I.e save the summer's tuition) and expect your spot to remain reserved for you.

    We occasionally offer a sneak peek into the (ironically) completely sane side of the boards. Parent section > butterflies and glitter.

    Presents of that value from anyone would make me extremely uncomfortable

    Thou shalt not ask the parent of the kid that's hitting the stunt, "aren't y'all moving?" when yours is falling.
