Media Day

  • Media Day is currently scheduled for Monday, February 16th from 6 - 7:30pm.  
  • We may need to reschedule this to Wednesday February 18th as Monday is a no-school day and we may be unable to get into the school building.

Team Tumbling
  • Team tumbling will continue on Wednesdays from March through May.  We will offer two classes split by current grade levels - elementary and middle school.
  • While our classes will be open to ANYONE wishing to increase their tumbling skills, 2014-15 cheerleaders will receive priority registration.  Feel free to invite a non-JLC friend to take tumbling classes with you!

2015-16 Season Info Sneak Peak
  • Our registration night is scheduled for Thursday, May 7th at 7pm at Tonawanda Elementary.
  • We will again accept boys and girls entering grades K - 8th in Fall 2015.
  • We will have four football spirit squads.   There are no tryouts to be on a spirit squad.  Everyone that registers for our football spirit squad program is guaranteed placement onto a spirit squad. Placement will be determined by your grade in the fall, and grades will be combined depending upon the number of cheerleaders in each grade. Team assignments will be confirmed by mid-June.  I am considering taking each football squad to a competition next season - the Lions Pride Cheer Showcase at New Berlin Eisenhower High School in early November.
  • We will have just one competitive team next season - a combined 5th - 8th grade team determined by tryouts.  All cheerleaders wishing to be on our competitive team must tryout.  The competitive team is a "cut" team, we do not guarantee placement on the competitive team for everyone trying out.  Tryouts will be held in early July this year.  
  • Choreography will be held in late July, or in August.
  • Please save Saturday July 4th for the Brookfield Independence Day Parade.
  • I am still working on our summer practice schedule, but if you are looking for a "free" week to take a family vacation, I encourage you to do so during the following dates:  July 18th through July 26th.  These are the only dates I can guarantee we will not have any JLC events.
  • Competitive team practices during the school year will be on Sundays from 5 - 7pm at Heat Athletics, Mondays TBD at WHMS for mandatory tumbling, and Wednesdays TBD at WHMS.
