Important Announcements ...

2012 - 2013 Cheer Season Information
  • Our website has been updated with initial information and important summer dates for our 2012 - 2013 cheer season.  You can view this information here.
  • As confirmed in our March 11th newsletter, the most important summer dates to hold clear for JLC are July 29th through August 11th for choreography.  Choreography is mandatory for all cheerleaders to attend.  Choreography will be split into three sessions and will be 3 - 4 hours each in length.  Choreography days may be scheduled on non-JLC practice days.  Exact dates will be shared by June 1st.  Choreography is a time for teams to come together to learn their entire competition routine from start to finish.  This cannot be as productive or effective if a team member is missing.  All stunts will be taught during choreography days as well, and if a team member isn't present, we cannot guarantee that they will be part of a stunt group.  

Weekly Newsletters 
  • Effective April 29th, JLC's weekly newsletters will be posted on our website only.  The newsletters will be posted by 9pm each Sunday evening.
