      Football Spirit Squad - September/October Optional Practice Update
      • I have secured a Jr Coach to conduct our optional football spirit squad practices on Mondays in September/October at WHMS.  The practice time has been changed to 5:30 - 6:30pm.  
      • The optional practices are intended for football spirit squad only cheerleaders, and are still in a tentative status as our Jr Coach needs to wait to see what her BC Cheer practice schedule will be.  We are hoping for no conflicts, but in case there is a conflict with JLC and BC Cheer, we will not hold the Monday optional practices, and keep to our Saturday practice (30 minutes prior to game start) as we have last season.
