Recent Cheer News

Jr. Wildkit Family,
 The 2018 Football & Cheer season has been Amazing.
We had a record number of Cheerleaders and our Numbers were up
in Flag & Tackle Football for the first time in three years.
Our core values A-C-T, Academic Character & Teamwork stress winning the player
not just the game. However, for the first time that I can remember we have three teams in
Championship games and all our tackle teams can finish with winning records if they all win.
Championship games are exciting for players coaches and families. Let's please remember that these are kids playing. Cheer loud for the Jr. Wildkits and support our players and coaches.
Yelling at refs and or coaches is not the right message to show our players. The League has asked all the Directors to stress sportsmanship and playing in a positive environment during the Bowl games. Good luck to everyone and have fun.
All Tackle & Flag Bowl games are on Sunday 28 OCT.
Flag is in a one day tournament. You will play until you lose or win the Championship.
This means both Flag teams will play a minimum of 1 game and max of 3 games.
K-2nd team will play at Vernon Hills @ 1PM in Sun Bowl vs NB Gold
3rd-4th Grade team will play at Glenbrook North HS at 12PM in Gator Bowl vs NT Grey
Tackle Football Bowl Games
At Highland Park (Wolter's Field)
5TH/6TH Grade Team vs Glenview @ 1130AM Fiesta Bowl- CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
Rookies 3/4 Team vs Northbrook @ 1PM Holiday Bowl - CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
At Glenbrook South HS
7/8 Orange Team vs Kenilworth @ 1PM  Rose Bowl - CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
7/8 Blue Team vs Glenview @ 230PM Sugar Bowl
We will have equipment turn in on Thursday 1 Nov from 530 until 7PM in our office at Family Focus. Our office is located in the gym on the lower level.
Please wash and dry all uniforms before turn in.
Game jerseys should be turned inside out and washed in cold water, then hang to dry.
We will hand out pictures to you when you return your equipment. We will also have details about our end of season banquet in an email next week.
