2015-16 Season Info Sneak Peak
  • Our registration night is scheduled for Tuesday, March 31st at 7pm at Wisconsin Hills Middle School.
  • Our program is open to student athletes entering 1st - 8th in Fall 2015.  We accept anyone from any school district as long as they agree to our financial and time commitments, and our program rules.
  • 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 grade levels may be combined depending upon the number of cheerleaders in each grade. Team assignments will be confirmed by the first day of practice.  
  • 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.  
  • Football spirit squads will practice on Tuesdays & Thursdays in the summer, and 30 minutes prior to their football game on Saturdays in September & October.
  • 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.  Competitive team tryout clinics will be held April 27th - 30th, with tryouts on May 1st.
  • Competitive Team Choreography will be held August 1st - 8th.
  • Please save Saturday July 4th for the Brookfield Independence Day Parade.
  • 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.
  • Event details, times and locations are posted on our master online calendar.
