Important Announcements
  • Uniform Distribution
    • Uniforms were distributed last week for cheerleaders participating in the Lancer Nation Media Day.
    • Uniform distribution will take place over the next two weeks for everyone else.
    • As a reminder, the uniforms are property of Junior Lancer Cheer, so no major alterations of the uniforms are permitted.  The only alteration permitted is moving the skirt button to make it tighter if needed.
    • Please be sure you keep the uniform in good condition during your use.  Some cheerleaders may be receiving brand new items - everyone else has items that are only 1 season old.  Families whose uniforms are returned damaged, stained or in an otherwise unusable condition will be assessed a $150 uniform fee.

  • School Year Cheer Tumbling
    • Tumbling with Elite Tumbling LLC will continue during the school year on Wednesdays at Tonawanda Elementary (September/October) and WHMS (November - February).
    • Football spirit squad cheerleaders are invited to attend the 6pm class.
    • Competitive cheerleaders will attend the 7pm class.
    • The fee will be $230 if you pre-pay the full season (September 2015 - March 2016), or $46 per month prepaid in advance for each month.  There is a $2 per class discount if you pre-pay the full season of tumbling. 
    • Classes must be pre-paid, there is no longer a pay as you go or drop in class fee option.  The fees cannot be pro-rated if you think you will miss a class. Also, there will be no make-ups or refunds for missed classes, unless the class is cancelled due to an Elite Tumbling conflict.
    • Email Coach to save your tumbling spot!

  • September/October Football Game Schedule
    • The football game schedule has not been released.  Please continue to reserve your Saturdays for football games.  
    • TBD game times are as follows:
      • A Squad: 8:30a - 10:30a
      • B Squad:  Hold 8:30a - Noon
      • C Squad:  Hold 8:30a - 1:30p
      • D Squad:  Hold 8:30a - 3p
      • The large time frames for the younger squads are TBD times - if their corresponding Jr Lancer football team is playing at an away game, we will combine a younger team to cheer with an older team that is playing at home.  They will only cheer at one game (a two hour time commitment) within the larger time frame.  If a younger team is combined to cheer with an older team, we will do our best to have them perform their halftime performance, but may not always be able to do so due to time constraints.
    • As soon as the football schedule is released, I will confirm exact times with everyone.
