    Important Announcements ...

    Competition Attendance Policy

    • JLC policy states that athletes are expected to be at all practices, football games and competitions unless they have an excused absence from school, a doctor's note, or scheduling conflict with their immediate family.  It is the parent's responsibility to contact the Administrator via email with any absences.
    • Furthermore, JLC policy states that once competition season begins in September, attendances at all practices are mandatory.  Athletes are allowed three absences from practice during the entire competition season.  The 4th absence without a previously made arrangement with the Administrator may result in dismissal from the program with no refunds for any dues or fees paid into the program.
    • Safety is the cornerstone of the JLC program, and all athletes choreographed in stunt groups are expected to have perfect attendance during competition season.
    • When participation is missed due to illness or injury, the athlete must present a doctor's release to the Administrator upon return.
    • If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Coach.

    Mat Duty
    • It is imperative that all team members do their share when they are assigned to Mat Duty.  As in past years, team members that do not honor their mat duty commitment will not receive a trophy at the end of the season banquet in March 2013.  
    • White team members and their parents should arrive at 5:15pm (and no later than 5:20pm) to start moving the mats from the gym to the cafeteria.  If the gym is empty during this time, you can bring the mats directly through the gym to the cafeteria.  If it is in use, you must bring the mats around through the hallways.
    • Blue team members assigned to mat duty are expected to move the mats from the cafeteria back to the gym, going through the hallways if the gym is in use.  Other team members may assist at their own discretion, but it is the responsibility of the assigned Blue team members to get the mats from the cafeteria to the gym, up onto the stage.  When we work together, the mats can be put away in as little as 15 minutes.  
    • Due to the addition of new Blue team members, the mat duty schedule has been updated and can be found here.
