Indian Invite Recap
  • All of the coaches are extremely proud of all Junior Lancer Cheerleaders for their amazing performances at the Indian Invite!
  • Thank you to Mrs. Retzlaff, Mrs. Stricker, Mrs. Neis, Mrs. Crow, Mr. Mulcahy and Mrs. Smith for assisting with the goodie bags and competition tshirts!  Thank you Mrs. Merritt for taking photos of the girls during their performances!
  • I would appreciate electronic files of any photos or videos you may have taken during the competition.  Please burn them onto a CD/DVD or copy them to a jump drive and send it to practice with your daughter.  The photos will be posted on our website and used in our end of the season awards banquet.  Indian Invite competition photos can be viewed here

Thanksgiving Weekend Tumbling Clinics at Heat Athletics
  • Heat Athletics is offering several tumbling clinics on Saturday, November 26th.
  • Please click here for more information and to register for a clinic.
  • Registration and payment must be made directly to Heat Athletics - do not send them to Coach Uhrle!

Photo Buttons
  • Please contact me if you've purchased a photo button, but haven't received it yet.  Some of the individual photos taken during the football season didn't come out right and need to be retaken.
  • If you'd like to purchase a photo button, just let me know!

Potential Fundraiser with BC Cheer
  • We have been approached by BC Cheer on the possibility of a joint fundraising venture to be held in early December.  BC Cheer is considering holding a lia sophia/bingo night.  Participants will have an opportunity to order lia sophia jewelry and play bingo. 
  • Before I commit JLC to this event, I would like to see how many JLC families would be interested in participating.  Please contact me if this is something you may be interested in.  If enough JLC families are interested, I will proceed with organizing this event with BC Cheer.

Message from Coach Uhrle ...

Everyone looks forward to the Thanksgiving feast. The turkey, the pies, and the celebration. However, Thanksgiving is incomplete without a moment of reflection. Spare a moment, and say a tiny prayer of gratitude for life's little blessings. For, it is these little blessings that enrich our life. I am thankful for the friendships and relationships I have made with each of you, and count every Junior Lancer Cheerleader and her family as a blessing in my life.  Thank you for all of your support, laughter, smiles and good times! 

Wishing you peace, love and happiness on this Thanksgiving and always,
Coach Uhrle
