Important Updates ....
    • Junior Lancer Football Schedule
      • The AAYFL football league is set to start on September 10th.
      • At the Lancer Nation event on Saturday August 13th, I received notification from Jr Lancer Football that their numbers are low this year, resulting in just one football team per grade level.  This means for the first time in 8 years, JLC will travel to away games.  
      • When JLC travels to an away game, we will combine teams for sideline cheerleading as follows:
        • A & C will cheer for the 8th grade team.  
        • B & D will cheer for the 7th grade team.
      • JLC Game Teams will cheer for their appropriate Jr Lancer Football teams at home games.
      • The AAYFL schedule is still being finalized, and is not expected to be finished until the first week of September.  As soon as I receive it, I will confirm dates, times and locations for all of our football games (September 10th - October 29th).
      • Please note - we are 98% confirmed for an away game on September 10th in Franklin.  Times are TBD.
