Important Announcements 


Uniforms
  • This is your final week to try on uniforms if needed.
  • Please email Coach Uhrle to set up an appointment to try on the uniforms if needed.
  • As a reminder, uniforms will be distributed at a practice in late August.  Families are NOT permitted to alter or take in the uniform pieces in any way.  

Absences
  • Please communicate via email all planned vacations that may conflict with cheer at your earliest convenience.  Known absences are posted on our master calendar found here.  This is your way of confirming that Coach is aware of your upcoming absence. 
  • Advance notice of absences is required and greatly appreciated so that coaches can plan practices accordingly.

Sapphire Competitive Team Registration
  • We are continuing to look for girls currently in 4th & 5th grades to join our incredibly talented Junior Recreational Team - Sapphire.  There are no tryouts to join Sapphire!
  • While on-time registration closes on June 1st, we will continue to accept registrations for Sapphire through July 1st.

Family Outing to Six Flags Great America
  • NEW DATE - Saturday, June 28th
  • 6th - 8th grade will be permitted to be at the park without a parent or guardian.
  • 5th grade and under must have a parent/guardian/chaperone with them at all times.
  • As this is a family outing/social event, JLC will NOT provide any supervision of any athlete!  If you choose to send your 6th - 8th grade daughter to the park on your own, it is recommended that you ask another adult in attendance to be your daughter's on-site contact for any situations that may arise.
  • Each family must purchase their own tickets.  We will send out emails to assist with carpools for 6th - 8th grade girls traveling without a parent/guardian (if you can start looking into your own carpools now, that would be great!)

Save the Date - City of Brookfield Independence Day Parade
  • Friday, July 4th!  Approximately 9am - 10:30/11am.  Times will be confirmed one week prior to the parade.
  • All cheerleaders are invited to march with us!

  • $85 payable to Heat Athletics is due on the first camp day.
  • This camp is mandatory for all competitive team members.  We will be stunting in your official competition stunt groups and if you are absent, you may not be placed into a stunt group for choreography.
  • We will have a specific dress code for each camp day.  Specific color t-shirts that will be worn are pink, blue, green, and red.  Black shorts will be worn each day.  What color to wear on each day will be shared in the July 6th newsletter.
  • Please utilize your team rosters to set up carpools :)
