If a Coed uses no personal days throughout the season 1 demerit will be removed from her record. If she has no demerits, she will receive 3 merits to begin the new season.
Other opportunities to earn merits are given throughout the season (i.e. volunteering for special events/activities, working extra hard at practice, 4 A’s at the end of each grading period).
- 1 demerit for unexcused absence from weekly practice (includes technique class)
- 1 demerit for tardy to practice or Coed event
- 1 demerit for non-compliance
- 1 demerit for insubordination
- 3 demerits for unexcused absence from mandatory practice or performance

When a dancer compiles 10 demerits within a year she is prohibited from the next 2 performances but is still expected to attend all Coed practices and performances.
When a member compiles 13 demerits, she is automatically dismissed from the team.
When an officer compiles 7 demerits, she loses her officer position, but will still remain a team member.
The Director may give demerits either directly or upon recommendation of officers.
