Bring on the Heat Cheer Competition

  • Sunday, January 6th - White Team Only
  • Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School, Jackson WI
  • You can pre-purchase your competition spiritwear by visiting this link.  This will guarantee your preferred t-shirt size and ensure you get one before they're sold out!  Also available are sweartshirts, yoga pants and other fun spiritwear!  
  • Blue team members that aren't going to the competition, but wish to purchase a competition spiritwear can do so online - just Coach as your pick-up person, and I'll bring your t-shirts to you at practice on the 7th.  Payment is required at the time of your online order.

Attendance Policy
  • Please remember that our Master Calendar, found online here is the first place you should check to view all JLC events and activities.  
  • As our season is beginning to wind down, please review the calendar to make sure you have all of our activities scheduled on to your personal calendars!
  • JLC's attendance policy during the competition season allows for three absences regardless of reason, or you can be removed from choreography and the program in its entirety.  Whether you're completely absent from practice, or you're at practice but not participating, your absence is felt on the mats by your teammates.
  • As we've mentioned multiple times, absences affect the team in a way that the remaining team members on the mats cannot practice fully if a member of their stunt group is absent.  We don't have someone sitting on the sidelines that can fill in for you when you're absent so your stunt group can practice.
  • We have several team members on both teams that have exceeded the three absence limit, and Coach will begin to enforce the attendance policy for the overall good of each team.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Coach via email.

Quote of the Week ...

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend." ~ Melody Beattie
