Parents remember that if you have a problem, complaining to another parent, or someone else will not solve the problem, it can only make the problem bigger. If you have a problem we can only solve it if you notify us of the issue. We have ZERO tolerance for gossip and drama and will not subject our girls or other parents to it. Pink Zebra Cheer and its officers, coaches and Director is not perfect! We cannot promise you we will not make mistakes. However, what we can promise is that we will work hard to make sure your child has a fun and exciting season
