Dress: C2. Do not wear medals as these are C1 items and will count against you at uniform inspection. Come in your civilian clothes, 809 spirit wear if you have it and bring your uniform on a hanger with your boots and wedge.

When: Plan to arrive at 0815h (8:15am) for opening parade at 0830h (8:30am). Uniform inspections begin at 0845h (8:45am) and the first team will be on the parade square at 0900h (9:00am). For parents who wish to come in and see our team shine, we are team four (4), will be doing uniform inspection at 1015h (10:15am) and will hit the parade square at 1000h (10:00am).


Bring in your shoe shining kit and a lint brush if you have one. A bit of final polishing and preparation can make all the difference when it comes to uniform inspection.

Bring a packed lunch and a water bottle. We have water on site, but will not be providing disposable bottles.

There will also be a canteen and 809’s SSC will be selling pizza for lunch as well.

Bring in something to do as there will be free time.

During free time, take the opportunity to watch the other teams during their routines. There’s a lot to be learned by observing how others do things.

Good luck!
