Important Announcements ....

  • Lancer Nation Drive 4 UR School Event
    • I am looking for 15 parents willing to participate in the Lancer Nation Drive 4 UR School Event on behalf of Brookfield Central Cheerleading.  
    • This event takes place on Saturday, August 15th at Brookfield Central High School from 8:30am - 2pm.
    • Once our Lancer Nation photo has been taken, I would love for 15 JLC parents (mom, dad, Grandpa, Aunt, etc - one adult 18 years or older per household address) to test drive a new Ford car, SUV or truck right at BCHS.  The BC Cheerleading program will earn $10 for every test drive when the driver says they are participating on behalf of BC Cheer.  We must have a minimum of 10 drivers to earn the funds for BC Cheer.
    • If you already have an athlete at BCHS, your test drive will also count for your child's sport!  
    • If you are willing to help out, please let me know.  This is a very easy way for our feeder program to show support for BC Cheer.  They hope to go to Nationals once again this season, and these funds will directly help offset travel costs for our Varsity cheerleaders.
  • Update to August Practice Schedule
    • Thursday, August 13th
      • No Practice due to WACPC Regional Meeting.  We will not reschedule this practice.
    • Monday, August 24th
      • Practice will be held on Monday, August 24th instead of Tuesday August 25th due to the OneDirection Concert at Miller Park.  
      • Many of our cheerleaders will be attending the concert as well as 4 our our 6 Jr Coaches, and myself :)
  • Brookfield Central Athletic Booster Club Membership
    • Membership for the 2015-16 season is now open.  You do not need to have a high school student to join the booster club!
    • When you join the BC Athletic Booster Club, please be sure to indicate BC Cheer as your sport on your membership - even if you do not have a student in high school just yet, you can declare Cheer as your sport, and the Cheer program will receive credit for your membership.
    • There are many different levels of membership available.  Visit this link for more details.
    • When you join the Athletic Booster Club, you are becoming a vested member in the future of our student athletes and our Brookfield Central athletic community.  Member benefits include tickets to the annual Member Tailgate Party (happening on Friday, September 4th right before the Varsity Football Game), and scholarship ability for your student athlete with a consecutive four year family membership.
    • Feel free to send your membership form and payment with your cheerleader to practice, and I will turn them in for you.  When you do this, I will be able to pick up your punch card (Blue & Silver level) and premium gift (Silver level membership) and deliver it to you at practice, saving you a trip to pick it up from the high school.
    • If you have any questions, please let me know.
