The following is an overview of the two cheerleading programs available through LBC:


PEE WEE CHEER GRADES K-2  Head Coach Elizabeth McClurg

This program is a great introduction to cheerleading.  Safety will be emphasized with beginning tumbling, stunting and jumps. Learning to work together as a group and being reponsible for your cheer items are essential skills for all cheerleaders. Pee-wee cheer will cheer at flag football games on Saturdays at Butler Lake.


Practices begin mid - late August


1 hour per week of practice




RECREATIONAL CHEER GRADES 3-8  Head Coach Kaitlyn Mueller
This program is the best option for athletes who want the fun and excitment of cheerleading for football games, while learning sidelines, halftime routines, and the fundamentals of stunting.  Every athlete will be part of a "Game Cheer" team.  Cheerleaders will also be part of community events throughout the season.  Recreation teams will have an opportunity to perform a full routine at the LBC Cheer Showcase and if prepared, at a local cheer competition.
