Titanium Stunting Class (Invitation Only)
  • Heat Athletics - 8pm
  • This class will open to Titanium Stunt Groups once the season officially begins on June 17th.  Full stunt group participation will be needed in order to attend this class.  More details will be forthcoming!

Saturday, June 8th 

UCA Camp
  • Camp will be held at Badger High School in Lake Geneva.  All cheerleaders must bring this completed waiver with them.   All fields on the form must be completed.  No waiver = no camp!  
  • I have received completed waivers from: Ana and Meghan.  
  • I have received incomplete waivers from: Ashley, Breanne, Brooke, Chelsea, Melanie, Reagan, Tati, Yasi.  Because the waivers are legal forms, I cannot complete any personal information on your behalf.  Please arrive earlier than requested on Saturday, June 8th to complete your forms.
  • I am missing forms from: Ainsley T, Alena, Allie, Alyson, Anna, Elizabeth, Jenna, Jensen, Katie, Mackenzie, Mara, Marie, Mia, Paris, Savvy, and Sophie.  No need to bring the form to me early - just be sure to bring it with you on Saturday, June 8th.
  • Please arrive promptly at 10am in the front parking lot of BCHS fronting Gebhardt Road.  The bus will leave at 10:15 and we cannot wait for any latecomers.
  • Cheerleaders should wear their new spirit wear tee, black shorts, cheer/athletic shoes, and have their hair up in a high straight ponytail with any cheer bow.  All jewelry should be removed.
  • Bring a lunch that we'll eat as soon as we arrive in Lake Geneva. Also bring several bottles of water and snacks.  A heavier snack is suggested for the cheerleaders to eat on the way home.  There will be no concessions or vending machines available, so please be sure you're bringing enough to eat and drink - it's better to bring too much than too little!
  • Cheerleaders should also apply sunscreen before they arrive, and bring sunscreen to reapply during camp.
  • We anticipate departing Badger High School at 4:45pm and arriving back in Brookfield at 5:45pm.  I will text all parents when we board the bus for our return so you can better anticipate our return time.
  • Stunt groups will be formed at camp to maximize the potential of each cheerleader.  Some stunt group and position placements will be permanent for the season - some may not.  

Important Announcements ...

Summer Absences
  • Summer Attendance Policy: June 17th through August 31st, 2013

    • required school obligation which is for a grade (i.e., chorus/band/orchestra performances.  Not study/homework time)
  • Absences will be listed in the individual event's description section of our online calendar so each family can confirm that their dates were received by Coach Uhrle, and to keep track of their excused/unexcused absences.
  • No matter what the reason or when it occurs, in order for an absence to be considered excused all athletes must inform the Head Coach at least 24 hours in advance via email.
  • Review our completed Attendance Policy on the Program Rules webpage.
