JLC Spiritwear Sales

  1. Go to
  2. Hover your mouse over "Team Spiritwear/Uniforms" located in the left menu bar under the heading "Browse by Category".  A pop-up window will appear listing all the different spiritwear sales currently ongoing at Burghardt's.
  3. Click "BCHS Jr Lancer Cheer" to view JLC's spiritwear catalog.
  • This is our one and only spiritwear sale for the entire season.  No late orders will be accepted.
  • All orders must be ordered online and paid via debit/credit card at the time of the order.  All orders will be distributed at practice - estimated delivery at practice is September 19th.
  • Please note: there is a 12-item minimum order each for the football jersey and the "Dream" shirt, and a 6-item minimum order for the "JLC Spirit Squad" shirt that needs to be met in order to avoid a $20 set-up fee per design.  If you order one of these items and the minimum order does not get met, JLC will be charged for the set-up fees so the order can be sent to production without being delayed.  The set-up fee will then be split equally among all those who ordered that design, and your portion will need to be reimbursed to JLC before your order can be picked up.  Please don't let the possibility of the set-up fee deter you from ordering these items - we have always met our minimum orders in the past, but I would be remiss in my duties if I did not make everyone aware of the minimum order and set-up fee.
  • Finally, please note that all sales are final.  There are no refunds or exchanges by either Burghardt's or JLC for any spiritwear items that you purchase.  Please be sure to order the correct sizes (especially youth vs adult) and make sure any personalization is entered correctly.
Purchase recommendations
  • The microfleece jacket and hoodie worn over the JLC shell & bodyliner, and the yoga pants worn under the JLC skirt are great items for your cheerleader to wear at football games once the weather gets colder!
  • The "Juniors Fame Jersey" is a great item for your middle school cheerleader to wear to school on Football Fridays instead of her JLC uniform.  Please note that this item is "Juniors" sizing, not your typical Adult sizing. 
  • The stadium chair is a real "back-saver" at football games and competitions.  They will have the "Lancer" logo on them so you will be able to get many years of usage as your children go through the Lancer system!

Updates to JLC's Program Handbook

The following changes have been made to our program handbook.  Download the updated program handbook here.
  • Installment Plan:  Effective immediately, a late fee of $15 will be assessed to any payment over 5 days late.  
  • Team Practices:  Effective September 5th, the Blue Team will practice on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7 - 8:30pm.  An additional practice day per week may be added for stunting as needed.
  • Football Games:  Effective this season, 6th - 8th grade cheer squads will travel to away games when team attendance is at least 80% confirmed, and when games are within a 30 min drive from BCHS.  3rd - 5th grade cheer squad will cheer at home games only, with the exception of any away games at Brookfield East High School.
  • Dress Code:  Hair must be up in a high ponytail all practices, football games, and competitions.
  • Optional Opportunities:  Individual stunt groups for competitions are restricted to 8th grade stunt groups only.  JLC athletes are not permitted to compete as an individual stunt group with non-JLC athletes as this violates our policy stating that JLC athletes are not permitted to participate with another school/rec cheer team while a member of JLC.
