Now let’s face it… EVERY Cheer Parent is truly a SUPER HERO!
Whether it’s getting kids to cheer practice, school, or competitions… these schedules can get pretty CRAZY!
Luckily we have some AMAZING TIPS on how to STAY ORGANIZED and be able to GET EVERYTHING DONE!
1. START TO SCHEDULE EVERYTHING!
I rely heavily on my phone and calendar to get everything straight. I am one of those moms that will completely forget that I have to do anything that day until it is time to go. I make sure everything is always set in my phone as soon as I find out about it, then I write it on the calendar in the kitchen at home so she can check it as well. The calendar in my phone is also color coordinated. Each event has its own color, whether it is Cheer, archery, doctor appointment, or her dad’s weekend. For archery tournaments and practice I also use my calendar and phone!
STAYING ORGANIZED IS KEY! WHETHER IT’S YOUR PHONE, PLANNER, OR STICKY NOTES; STAYING TRUE TO YOUR SCHEDULE WILL HELP YOU THROUGH YOUR DAY! : )
2. FORGETFUL? USE ALARMS!
My daughter has a phone with an alarm that will go off forty-five minutes prior to cheer practice. This allows her to know when to get ready! I have another alarm that will go off fifteen minutes from when we need to leave. With all these alarms we are able to get through the day right on schedule. I can also get her one year-old brother and his bag ready before we head out.
ALARMS CAN BE YOUR BEST FRIEND AND LIFE SAVER!
3. KEEP YOUR AREA ORGANIZED
We have specific places for EVERYTHING!
Practices and competitions require LOTS of specific items and sometimes it can get a little hard to keep track of everything! But we were able to find the PERFECT SOLUTION!
- Practice Shirts
- Practice Uniforms
- Cheer Shoes
- Competition Uniform
- Team Cheer Bag
- Water Bottle
- Extra Accessories
WE WERE ABLE TO ORGANIZE ALL THE ITEMS IN HER CLOSET RIGHT BEFORE WE START OUR DAY!
Before we go we always double check all our bags the night before before we go to competitions, also the morning of JUST IN CASE!
