  • Practice days will continue to be Mondays and Wednesdays.
 
ATTENDANCE POLICY NOW IN FORCE!
  • Per our JLC Cheer Constitution, our competition season attendance policy is now in force.
  • Effective October 1st, attendance is mandatory at all practices and competitions.  Cheerleaders are allowed three absences from practice for the remainder of the season.  A 4th absence without a previously made arrangement with Coach Uhrle can result in dismissal from the program, or suspension from a competition. 
  • All absences should be reported ASAP to Coach Uhrle via email at juniorlancercheer@gmail.com.  Coach Uhrle will share the information with your team's coach.
  • If your daughter is going to miss one of our competitions (Indian Invite - November 19th, Bring on the Heat - January 8th, Brookfield Blast - February 4th, KMLHS - February 11th, and Badger State Cheer Championships - February 26th), a minimum 4 week notice is required.
 
JLC CHALLENGE!
  • We are kicking off a JLC general fund fundraiser to coincide with the extremely profitable Boston Store Community Day Event.  This challenge is optional, and not mandatory.
  • Each cheerleader is asked to sell 4 Community Day coupon books on behalf of JLC.  Each coupon book is sold for $5.  For every 4 books sold, you will receive one raffle ticket when you turn in your money to Coach Uhrle at practice.  The raffle ticket will give you one entry into our Grand Prize Giveaway - a Visa Gift Card equivalent to 25% of all profits raised during the challenge period!  If every cheerleader sells 4 books, the Grand Prize is $280!
  • The Challenge period begins Monday, September 26th and runs through Wednesday, November 9th. I will have coupon books with me at practice for distribution each Monday and Wednesday.
  • The Grand Prize drawing will take place at 6:45pm on Monday, November 14th.  As this is a competition week - your attendance is mandatory to win :) GRAND PRIZE IS NOW $40 with just 4 girls participating!
  • Books sold and profits earned for this challenge will be deposited into the JLC general fund - NOT individual accounts.
  • Please note, if the Grand Prize winning family has an outstanding balance due to JLC, the grand prize will be applied to your outstanding balance, and you will receive any remaining amount, if applicable. 
  • Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions!  Thanks for your support!
