DJCL cheerleaders will attend home games on Saturdays and some on Sundays depending on the football schedule. While we do not intend to travel to away games during the regular season there may be a need to depending on the schedule. During the regular season we will only travel to New Canaan if necessary. During playoffs, there may be away games and the coaches will use their discretion on which games to attend as these may be at different locations as well as in the evening.
Note that Cheerleaders will not cheer in the rain even if games are not canceled and they will not cheer when the temperature is expected to be below 40 degrees F.
DJCL is also looking for parent coaches, assistant coaches, finance/treasury assistance, special events coordinators and website support. If interested or if you have any questions, contact DJCL at
