Ike Showcase Competition Waivers
  • Ike Showcase competition waivers were sent home with all athletes last Monday.  Please return them ASAP.  Athletes that forget face 25 push-ups each time they forget to bring the waiver to practice.
  • Please be sure to complete every field on the waiver form, including medical/health insurance information.  Incomplete waivers will prevent an athlete from performing at the event.

Save the Date - Jr Lancer Night at BC Football
  • Jr Lancer Night at BC Football is scheduled for Friday, October 11th.  This event is mandatory for ALL JLC athletes - both Brookfield and Oconomowoc residents - to attend.  Competitive teams - if you do not attend, you forfeit your spot in our competition routine.
  • All athletes will receive free admission to the game.  More details will be shared in the next few weeks.

October - National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
  • Out of respect for the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month of October, JLC athletes will be permitted to dye a pink streak in the hair.  The actual dyeing of hair, costs, etc, are the responsibility of each athlete.
  • JLC athletes will be permitted to keep the pink streak in their hair from October 1st through October 31st.  The pink streak MUST be dyed back to the athlete's natural hair color by November 1st - no exceptions as we have a competition on November 2nd.
  • Please note that approval is for the athlete's actual hair that is dyed pink.  Hair extensions are not permitted as they violate safety rules.
