Important Announcements ...

Uniform Checklist
  • Now that the uniform re-sale and new cheer shoe fittings have been concluded, please ensure your daughter has all of the following uniform pieces:  
    • Shell
    • Skirt
    • Bodyliner
    • Briefs
    • Poms
    • Shoes
    • Competition Cheer Bow
  • If you don't have any of the aforementioned uniform pieces or haven't ordered them yet (specifically the cheer shoes and competition bow), please contact Coach Uhrle asap!  
  • If you will be ordering a new shell, skirt, bodyliner, briefs, and poms, please contact Coach Uhrle to schedule a fitting appointment.  Fittings will be held on July 12th from 6 - 8pm by appointment only.

    Competition Cheer Bow Orders
    • All cheerleaders must purchase a new competition cheer bow.  Orders are due by July 12th - no exceptions!
    • Click here to download the order form.
    • I have received competition cheer bow orders from the following families: Barreda, Blankenburg, Brinkmann, Cadd, Crow, Flanary, Gagliano, Mulcahy, Orgeman, Regner, Retzlaff, Roth, Smith, Taipala, Van Haren, Washington and Wedel.

    Football Season
    • The Jr Lancer Football season is scheduled to kick off on Saturday, September 8th, and will run every Saturday through October 20th, with a play-off game on October 27th.  We will cheer at all home games at the BC Football Stadium.  Middle school teams may travel to an off-site location for the play-off game.
    • 8th Grade will cheer for 8th Grade football and must arrive at 8:30am.
    • 7th Grade will cheer for 7th Grade football and must arrive at 10am.
    • 6th Grade will cheer for 6th Grade football and must arrive at 11:30am.
    • 3rd - 5th Grade will cheer for 5th Grade football and must arrive at 1pm.
    • All cheerleaders are expected to cheer for the entire game, including half-time.  
    • Our Jr Coaches are busy choreographing their team's football halftime routines.  If your daughter will be missing her football game on a regular basis due to another activity (soccer, softball, dance, etc), please let me know asap.  Cheerleading is unlike any other sport - when the girls perform, if someone is missing, it affects the entire team.  Athletes that may miss football games for another activity will still be choreographed into the routine, but will have a peripheral role and not be assigned to a stunt group.
