Important Announcements 

    UCA Milwaukee Championship Recap

    • Titanium, JLC's 6th - 8th Grade competitive team earned JLC's first ever bid to the UCA National High School Cheerleading Championships on February 8th & 9th in Orlando, FL!
    • While they were the only team competing in the Senior Recreational division, thus automatically earning a bid to Nationals, the team's overall score also earned an "At Large" bid to Nationals - great job girls!
    • The team has a lot of work in the coming weeks leading up to Nationals and are most assuredly up to the challenge.
    • We will be seeking business and corporate sponsors to help offset some of the traveling costs - if your organization or company is interested, please let me know!

    Middle School Alternate Needed!
    • We are looking for a middle school cheerleader - boy or girl - that is willing to commit to being an alternate for Titanium, and can commit to coming to practices on the following dates:  12/11, 12/18, 12/27, 1/8, 1/15, and 1/22. This person will be primarily working on stunting as a secondary base.
    • No prior experience is needed, but is preferred.  This person will have an opportunity to come with us to all remaining competitions, including Nationals (at their own cost) as our official alternate.
    • Please have their parent contact me directly via email at for more details.
