FaceBook & MySpace
  Kent State University had asked student-athletes to discontinue their Facebook profiles. At Kent State, all student-athletes were expected to take down their Facebook profiles by August 1. Those who did not meet the deadline jeopardized their right to continue to compete. Director of Athletics, Laing Kennedy reversed the policy. Student athletes CAN keep their Facebook profiles, provided they keep them for only friends to see and follow the athletic department's code of expected behavior. Facebook. It used to be an actual book, handed out by your college, with pictures of fellow incoming freshmen. Now, it’s the social networking site that’s sitting right behind MySpace in the internet popularity contest. People have expectations of privacy in cyberspace that just doesn’t exist. Penn State University Police used Facebook to identify and prosecute fans who rushed the field after the Oct. 8 Ohio State game, said the Ohio State University Police Assistant Director Tyrone Parham. At the University of Akron, staffers touch on the issue in the one-day orientation for new students but will provide a more comprehensive approach in coming years. ``It's so new,'' said Lori Reinbolt, director of new student orientation. ``Students don't realize how much personal information they're putting out there.'' Incoming college students are hearing the usual warnings this summer about the dangers of alcohol and credit card debt. But many are also getting lectured on a new topic: the risks of Internet postings, particularly on social networking sites such asFacebook. Kent State offered seminars on the dangers of Internet postings for the first time last spring and will include the issue -- again, a first -- in its new student orientation later this month.

OHSAA Insurance Change

The Ohio High School Athletic Association Insurance Coverage has changed!

Effective August 1st, 2006 the OHSAA no longer provides catastrophic insurance coverage for students whose sport is not "recognized" by them.

OHSAA has endorsed insurance broker Loomis & LaPann to offer schools the opportunity to purchase catastrophic insurance coverage at a reasonable cost.

Please be sure that your cheerleaders are adequately covered for full particiapation: Camps, Away games & travel, community service off-site, pep rallies, community events, competitions, parades...etc

Student Coaches
  Thank you to all the student coaches volunteering their time to teach the youth cheers, chants, technique and mostly what it means to be a leader of character. Don't forget to fill out forms and get community service points for your transcripts for all your hard work!

High School SuperBowl!!

The Big 33 is Much More Than a Game - the High School SuperBowl!

The philosophy is to make sure the PNC Big 33 Football Classic (Ohio vs. Pennsylvania) is much more that just a football game by building activities around the event involving Big 33 players, Big 33 cheerleaders, buddies, host families and scholarship winners.

Approaching its 50th Anniversary, the Big 33 enjoys a rich history both on the football field and off. Since 1985, over $2,463,769 has been raised for academic scholarships. This year, the Big 33 awarded $369,000 in academic scholarships to high school seniors throughout Pennsylvania and Ohio.

All Star Cheerleaders: Cheerleaders are selected from high schools on the basis of ability and spirit.

The squad also has a full week of practice and community activities, culminating with a spectacular halftime performance.

Youth Clinics: As a Big 33 cheerleader - you would teach and interact with local youth. Dreams are created.

Coaches & ADs -- The Game is played in early to Mid-June at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, PA.

Scholarship Applications will be available online after November 1,2006. Please select nominees that exemplify the character of a cheerleader.


The OACC is proud to be on the Committee for Youth Sports for the

Ohio Parks and Recreation Association.

We look forward to working toward common goals with

The Girls Institute of Ohio

and their Director, Michelle Park. The Girls Institute is an Outreach Program for the (OPRA) Ohio Parks & Recreation.

The collaboration of partners at The Girls Institute is working together to develop programs

Cheerleading Injury Survey

Hiring New Staff

Seasonal or permanent, Here's a good tip from our friends at Character Counts!

"Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, but knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful." Warren Buffet updated the notion: "In looking for people to hire, look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence and energy. But if they don't have the first, the other two will kill you."

Since it's easier to train a person of good character to do a job well than it is to develop character in a skilled but unprincipled employee, if you have to choose, hire for character and train for skills.
